Manchester City players celebrate winning the EPL title

MANCHESTER (Sporting Alert) — Manchester City easily defeated West Ham United 2-0 in the final game of the season to lift the English Premier League on Sunday.

“It’s a very special time. My first year is not easy to get used to English football but I think I managed a great group of players,” winning manager Manuel Pellegrini said.

“It was a very special because we’ve never been at the top of the table but six games away I told my players we needed to change and they believed in me. They are a special group.”

The accomplishment on Sunday saw Man City winning the EPL title for the second time in three years.

“I feel amazing. It’s been a hard season and we’ve come out the other end the best way possible,” Joe Hart, Manchester City goalkeeper said on BBC Radio Manchester.

“This has been a hard slog but we’ve beaten some great teams and we’re really proud with what we’ve achieved.

“This is football at its best – I love the game, I love this club and I’m ready to go this summer.”

Liverpool came from behind to beat Newcastle United 2-1, but had to settle for second place, while third place Chelsea defeated the relegated Cardiff City 2-1.
