Manchester City were crowned champions of England on Sunday after their final day victory over West ham was enough to see off the challenge of title-rivals Liverpool.

Manuel Pellegrini’s Citizens ended the closely fought and thrilling campaign two points clear of Brendan Rodgers’s Liverpool for the fourth topflight title in the club’s history and second in three seasons.

Liverpool – who finished the season with victory over Newcastle – had to settle for second place after being so close to ending their 24 year league title droubt.

Liverpool, who spent 59 days at the summit were followed by Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton and Spurs.

Manchester United’s disastrous season ended with a one all draw with Southampton, a seventh-place finish and no European football next term.
