Phil Foden’s stunning effort gave City the upper hand just over a minute after kick-off before the England star hit a cross from the left of the house in the 18th minute.

A brilliant overhead kick from Mohammed Kudus late in the first half gave West Ham and Arsenal some hope, but City’s two-goal lead was restored by Rodri’s weak effort from the edge of the box as City’s historic title was sealed.

Arsenal did what they had to do by beating Everton 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium, but it wasn’t enough as they needed City to draw or lose against West Ham.

“For Arsenal to push us to another level – before it was Liverpool and the last two seasons it was Arsenal. This one has been incredible. We get the message, we know they will be there for many years to come. years,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.

“When I moved here, if someone had said I would win six championships in seven seasons, I would say you’re crazy, no way.

“All these players from Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea, all these teams. This is our time now. We are part of it.”

City’s victory also eclipsed that of rivals Manchester United, with the blue half of the city now the most dominant force in the country.

It is also the club’s eighth Premier League crown, with Pep Guardiola in charge of six of them since arriving from Bayern Munich in 2016.

Only Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp, at Chelsea and Liverpool respectively, have beaten the Spaniard to the title in eight years.

Although Guardiola has seven triumphs behind Ferguson’s 13, he remains the second most successful Premier League manager of all time.

City also continue to chase their rivals’ overall tally and, with the power shift from red to blue in Manchester, this could well be beaten.

Success this season has by no means been easy for the champions, under sustained pressure from Arsenal and Liverpool.

Guardiola’s side won their first six league matches before suffering back-to-back defeats against Wolves and the Gunners.

Only their third defeat of the campaign came at Aston Villa in December and since then they have gone unbeaten in 23 matches, winning 19 of them.

They ensured they were top of the table going into the final day with a 2-0 win at Tottenham on Tuesday evening.

City finished the season as champions once again, making history.

Further success could yet come in Saturday’s FA Cup final against United as City continue to flourish under Guardiola.
