City, who beat Brighton 4-1 on Sunday, finished top of the table with 98 points ahead of Liverpool (97) and Tottenham (77). City also won the Premier League title in 2012 and 2014.

“We did it for our fans,” manager Pep Guardiola said on Sunday. “We knew we had to win after Liverpool beat Wolves yesterday [Saturday].”

Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Spurs saw them finish second in the league for the second consecutive season, while Spurs finished fourth and will play in the Champions League next season.

Meanwhile, Manchester United came from behind to beat Cardiff 2-0 and finish in sixth place.

“I think this is a good achievement for us,” United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told BBC Sport. “To be honest, we’ve been good since I came back [in December]. We’ve had a lot of injuries but we kept fighting.”

The Premier League season has ended, with Man City claiming the title and Liverpool securing a top-five finish.

Man City was crowned champion after a 1-0 win at Brighton, while Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Wolves clinched fifth place.

Here is a look at Sunday’s results and the Premier League table:

In the final game of season, Manchester City scored a pair of goals to beat Queens Park Rangers and win the English Premier League crown. Manchested City’s victory was sealed only moments after crosstown rivals Manchester United had won their match against Sunderland. With just a one-point lead going into Sunday, Man City needed a win to keep their slim title hopes alive. After QPR’s Djibril Cisse gave his team a 1-0 lead in the 13th minute, Man City kept the pressure up and eventually broke through with two goals from Edin Dzeko (45′) and Sergio Aguero (90’+4) in the second half. In other action, Chelsea blanked Blackburn Rovers 2-0 to secure third place in the table. And in a battle for fifth place, Liverpool topped Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 thanks to goals from Dirk Kuyt (67′) and Andy Carroll (90’+1′).

Manchester City won the Premier League for the second time in three years after beating West Ham 2-0 at the Etihad on Sunday.

The title was sealed before kick-off with Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Newcastle United, and City did the job themselves less than an hour later thanks to a Vincent Kompany belter and a David Silva strike.

Liverpool ended the season in second place, two points behind City, while Tottenham Hotspur beat Leicester City 4-1 at Wembley to secure third spot and Chelsea finished fifth after a 3-0 loss at Newcastle.

In other matches on the final day of the season, Arsenal beat Huddersfield Town 1-0 at home to end their season on a high. Manchester United lost to Cardiff City 2-0 at Old Trafford while Everton beat Spurs 3-2 away from home.

Manchester City clinched their second Premier League title in three years on Sunday, beating West Ham United 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium to secure a top-flight point record of 100 with one game to spare.

City’s crown was sealed when Manchester United surrendered a two-goal lead and drew 2-2 with bottom side Sunderland in the late kick-off, meaning that even a defeat for Pep Guardiola’s side would not have prevented them from retaining their title.

Liverpool had looked set to grab the final Champions League qualification spot at Chelsea’s expense but failed to hold on to a lead against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and fell to a 1-1 draw.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men had earlier beaten Leicester City 6-1 at the King Power Stadium, but it was not enough as Liverpool preserved their place in fourth thanks to Philippe Coutinho’s goal, which came after Georginio Wijnaldum had opened the scoring.

Southampton beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at Selhurst Park while Watford saw off Swansea City 4-1.

Manchester City took their revenge in the Premier League after Chelsea’s win on Saturday night. A 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday saw Manuel Pellegrini’s men secure second place in the Premier League.

On a day when Vincent Kompany was absent, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero were forced off with injuries, and Wilfried Bony came off the bench to score the winner against a resilient Palace side, it was a result earned through sheer effort and determination from Pellegrini’s team.

And although City may not be able to reflect on it now, this season will be remembered as one of the most thrilling title races the Premier League has ever seen.

It was a game that began slowly for City, with Aguero effectively marked out of the game by Scott Dann and Damien Delaney, but they slowly gained momentum.
