Inside Man City’s wild title celebration as Grealish reacts to Arsenal defeat

Guardiola reflects as Man City stand on cusp of Premier League title

Manchester City stars wildly celebrated becoming Premier League champions for the fifth time in six seasons after Arsenal lost at Nottingham Forest. Jack Grealish, Phil Foden and Nathan Ake were all filmed waiting for the final whistle as the Gunners slipped up yet again. 

Taiwo Awoniyi scored the only goal of the game to completely end Arsenal’s hopes of winning a first league title since 2004. It was the Gunners’ second-consecutive defeat and the fourth time they had dropped points in their last eight outings. 

City were therefore able to clinch the Premier League without playing this weekend. They will go into Sunday’s clash with Chelsea knowing they are already champions. 

And a video posted to social media shows the moment Pep Guardiola’s stars learned that they will retain the trophy. Grealish, Foden, Ake, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias, Rodri, Kyle Walker and several more of their team-mates are seen gathered in front of a television.

Grealish is filming the scenes on his phone, seemingly ready to post them to his social media channels. As referee Anthony Taylor blows his whistle to conclude Arsenal’s title chances, City’s players jubilantly rise to their feet and let out a huge cheer. 

They can be heard screaming, hugging and chanting before the video cuts short. Some of them continue to film on their own mobile devices. 

Winning the Premier League ticks off the first of three possible trophies as City hunt a historic treble. They will face rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final before clashing with Inter Milan in a crunch Champions League showdown. 

Guardiola had expected that his side would need to beat Chelsea to win to be sure of their success this weekend. But Forest ended all chances of Arsenal catching their title rivals.

The Spaniard said on Friday: “We are satisfied to be able to play the Champions League final. It is non-stop and now comes the most difficult thing at the end. All the tennis players serve to win Wimbledon know it is the most difficult one.

“On Sunday, the game is in our hands to win the most important competition – the Premier League is the most important because for 11 months it’s every week.”

There are sure to be further celebrations after City’s Premier League clash with Chelsea on Sunday. It is expected that the team will collect their medals and lift the trophy as it is their final home game of the campaign.
