Manchester City win record fourth-Successive Premier League title

Manchester City have been crowned 2023/24 Premier League champions, becoming the first men’s team in the history of English football to win four top-flight titles in a row.

3-1  final-day victory over West Ham United courtesy of goals from Phil Foden (2) and Rodrigo sealed our latest success, with City finishing two points ahead of second-placed Arsenal.  

Captain Kyle Walker lifted the trophy at the Etihad in front of a sell-out crowd, with Club legend Paul Dickov and City in the Community participant Michael Crowther given the responsibility of handing the trophy to the England full-back.  

It represents City’s tenth top-flight league title – and the sixth time in seven seasons we have won the Premier League, continuing Pep Guardiola’s remarkable record since taking charge of City back in 2016.

This latest Premier League title success is the third trophy City have won during the 2023/24 season, building on the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup victories earlier in the campaign.

City now have an opportunity to become the first side in English football history to win back-to-back Premier League and FA Cup Doubles when we face Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley on 25 May.

Walker says the unique achievement of winning four Premier League titles in a row is something he will always treasure.

“The last few years have been very special for everyone at Manchester City but to have captained this Club to a fourth straight Premier League title is something I will cherish forever,” he said.  

“The Premier League is the benchmark by which everyone is measured. It’s rightly renowned as the hardest and most competitive league in the world so to win four in a row, especially after last season’s Treble success, illustrates what we have collectively managed to achieve.

“There are so many people I would like to thank but I have to start with Pep, the backroom staff, my colleagues in the dressing room and everyone who works so hard across the Club, day in and day out. There is no way we could have won this title without all their incredible work and efforts.

“The support we also get from the Manchester City fans never ceases to amaze me. Week in, week out they are there, whatever the weather, supporting us all the way. Their passion and backing honestly means the world to me and all the players.

“I hope that making history by winning a fourth consecutive Premier League title stands as a fitting way for us to say thank you to all our fantastic supporters.” 

In our 38 league matches this season, Guardiola’s history makers won 28 and scored 95 goals, collecting 91 points, with City remaining unbeaten at home throughout the entire campaign, with our last Premier League defeat at the Etihad Stadium having come back in November 2022 (Brentford 1-2).

City’s points haul of 91 means we have now finished on 90+ points on four occasions, more than any other side in the Premier League era (Liverpool and Chelsea three, Manchester United two and Arsenal one).
