Manchester City clinch third consecutive Premier League title after Arsenal fall to Nottingham Forest

In a thrilling encounter at the City Ground, Nottingham Forest emerged victorious with a narrow 1-0 win over Arsenal. The result proved to be a pivotal moment in the Premier League title race, as Manchester City were crowned champions due to Mikel Arteta’s Gunners suffering back-to-back defeats. Taiwo Awoniyi’s solitary goal for Nottingham Forest secured the vital three points, delivering the title to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Despite falling behind, Arsenal responded with vigour, desperately seeking an equalizer before halftime. They applied relentless pressure on the Nottingham Forest defence, launching a series of attacks. However, the Forest backline, organized and resolute, held firm until the referee blew the final whistle.

The result confirmed Manchester City as the champions of the Premier League for the third consecutive season. Although Forest’s victory played a significant role in City’s triumph, it was only a small part of an outstanding season for Guardiola’s men.

As Manchester City prepares for their upcoming fixtures against Chelsea, they will be given a guard of honour at the Etihad Stadium to celebrate their remarkable achievement. With an FA Cup final against Manchester United and a UEFA Champions League final against Inter Milan on the horizon, the treble is still within their grasp.

Full Time

It is over for Arsenal, stellar season but no title to show for it.

Second half

And we are back for probably the most important second 45 minutes of the season for Arsenal.


There is half-time! Forest on course to stay in the Premier League, Arsenal on track to officially hand the title to Manchester City. Much, much more needed from the Gunners.

Nottingham Forest 1-0 Arsenal

Odegaard gives the ball with a terrible pass and Forest are away. Gibbs-White drives forward, slides the pass through to Awoniyi and he beats Ramsdale to give Forest the deal.

Kick Off!

And we are off to a start!

Starting XI

No real surprise that Cooper has gone with the same side that earned a point at Stamford Bridge last weekend. Awoniyi once again leading the line, and he’s a man very much in form.

For Arsenal, Xhaka starts at left-back as Tierney drops to the bench, with Partey and Jorginho starting alongside each other in midfield for the first time. Trossard in for the injured Martinelli.
