Manchester City have confirmed themselves as the 2023/2024 English Premier League champions following their 3-1 victory over West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.

The story would have been different according to FIFA and CAF-accredited journalist, Adepoju Tobi, who faulted Arsenal for slipping up at a very crucial moment.

Pep Guardiola's side claimed the title for the fourth consecutive time in a row, finishing about the Gunners with just two points.

Manchester City registered 28 wins, 7 draws, and 3 losses to top the table with 91 points, while Mikel Arteta's side also won 28 matches, but registered 5 draws and 5 losses to end with 89 points.

Adepoju believes Arsenal conceded the title to City after losing to Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium.

The Villans did a double over the London club this season beating them home and away, BBC reports.

Having defeated Arsenal 1-0 at Villa Park in December, Villa beat the Martin Odegaard-captained side 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium in April.

Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins found the back of the net in the final six minutes of the encounter to break the hearts of the home fans.

Asked at what point Arsenal lost the glorious chance to win the prestigious prize, Adepoju told Sports Brief:

"Arsenal lost the League title when they lost to Aston Villa at home. It was cruel to lose at home at that crucial stage and losing to their former manager makes it complicated."

Despite a 2-1 comeback win over Everton on the final match day, Arsenal could only finish in second position.

Bayer Leverkusen troll Arsenal

Sports Brief earlier reported that Bayer Leverkusen trolled Arsenal with a perfectly timed social media post on May 19 after Arsenal failed to win the English Premier League title.

Arsenal beat Everton in the final game of the season, but the result was inconsequential as Manchester City beat West Ham to successfully retain their title.

Leverkusen, who were recently crowned the German champions, shared a photo of former Arsenal player Granit Xhaka celebrating with the Bundesliga trophy.
