Man City boss Guardiola reacts to lifting the Premier League trophy

Pep Guardiola confirms Yaya Toure to leave Manchester City

City started brightly, with Christopher Schindler clearing off his line from a scramble at a Leroy Sane corner, but otherwise Huddersfield defended manfully and substitute Scott Malone might even have snatched a dramatic injury-time victor for the visitors.

At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea moved within two points of fourth-placed Tottenham after their 1-0 victory over Liverpool thanks to an Olivier Giroud header.

Before Vincent Kompany lifted the Premier League trophy, as fans invaded the pitch, two took the time to unveil the flawless banner dedicated to 76-year-old Ferguson.

By that point, Huddersfield had taken to defending very deep and hacking the ball clear at every opportunity, with very little thought for where it might land.

However, whilst the Emirates was meant to give Arsenal the financial resources in the long term to compete with not just England's, but Europe's elite, it significantly hampered Wenger's ability to challenge in the short term.

Wenger's final season after 22 years in charge is destined to end in disappointment after Thursday's Europa League semi-final exit to Atletico Madrid.

Guardiola's high flying City side has just three games left this season to further its tally over Manchester United, who remain in second place on 77 points following their defeat at Brighton on Friday. One of the most handsome farewells a player can receive. Today was proof we can do better.

Meanwhile, Arsenal's players shrugged off a disappointing campaign to bring a rousing conclusion to Arsene Wenger's tenure at the Emirates Stadium with a 5-0 win over Burnley.

"We will need more", said Wagner whose team visit Chelsea on Wednesday and host Arsenal on Sunday. "Really push to support these players, the staff who remains".

"I'd like to finish with one simple word - I will miss you". When you see all the trajectory over the course of the eight years I've been here, it's unbelievable.

Manchester City finally got their hands on the Premier League trophy after what felt like the longest coronation in Premier League history.

Pep Guardiola's side were presented with the Premier League trophy after the match, but their title celebration was not as rapturous as it might have been following a match in which the Terriers had chances to crash the party with an unexpected win.

Pep Guardiola was thrown in the air by his squad. Some of the backroom stuff swigged on huge bottles of champagne. City's fans, who earlier defied orders to not invade the pitch after fulltime, chanted song after song about their favorite players.

"In England, it's special because it's so tough".

"We just never knew what it would feel like to lift the Premier League trophy".
