Phil Foden Scores Twice as Man City Secure Fourth Straight Premier League Title

Phil Foden struck twice early on as Manchester City secured an historic fourth successive Premier League title with a convincing 3-1 win over West Ham.

 

There were few signs of last-day nerves from Pep Guardiola’s dominant side, although a spectacular effort from Mohammed Kudus just before half-time at the Etihad Stadium did give rivals Arsenal brief hope.

 

Yet that was soon extinguished as Rodri drove home City’s third to complete their sixth league success in seven seasons under the inspirational Pep Guardiola on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

 

The victory ensured they could not be caught by the second-placed Gunners regardless of their result against Everton.

 

Arsenal had needed a favour from West Ham, who were already confirmed in ninth place and were playing out the final match of David Moyes’ second spell as manager.

 

With City having shown little sign throughout the run-in of pressure affecting them, only optimistic Arsenal supporters were expecting them to slip up.

 

It took less than two minutes to dash even their hopes as City powered out of the traps to put the matter beyond all reasonable doubt.

 

With the sun blazing down and their player of the season Foden at his magical best, they did it in style.

 

Foden took a Bernardo Silva pass on the right and cut inside, skipping past a challenge from James Ward-Prowse and drilling a left-foot shot into the top corner from the edge of the box.

 

The atmosphere had already been buoyant but it was at this point the party really seemed to begin and City revelled in the occasion.

 

West Ham, without Jarrod Bowen due to tonsillitis, could do little to repel the hosts and it seemed only a matter of time before they doubled their lead as Jeremy Doku twice tested Alphonse Areola.

 

Rodri also lashed an effort wide but the second goal duly arrived on 18 minutes as Doku pulled the ball across the box and Foden swept home with a first-time shot.
