Kyle Walker became the fourth Manchester City captain to proudly lift the famous trophy aloft.

Manchester City’s players collected an historic fourth Premier League title on Sunday following the 3-1 victory over West Ham United.

It wasn’t quite the carefree day that fans had hoped for, with a Mohammed Kudus overhead kick at the end of the first half reducing City’s lead to one goal, while Tomas Soucek looked to have netted a second in the latter stages, only for the goal to be correctly ruled out for handball.

Before that, City had got the business done when Phil Foden netted a sublime first-half brace, and then Rodri, as he habitually does, popped up with a goal on the big stage just before the hour mark.

It secured City the title ahead of Arsenal, who beat Everton 2-1 at the Emirates on the final day and finished two points behind Pep Guardiola’s winning juggernaut. It also means City enter the record books as the first side in the history of English top-flight football to win four consecutive titles.

Understandably, it was an afternoon to celebrate at the Etihad, and after fans who rushed onto the pitch at full-time had been cleared, and the stage erected, the players and backroom staff re-emerged to collect their winners’ medals and to lift the trophy.

The players walked up one by one and were handed their medals by Paul Dickov, 25 years on from his Wembley heroics against Gillingham, and Michael Crowther, a 61-year-old supporter and a City in the Community participant, who is helping with a programme aimed at making physical activity more available to those suffering from dementia.

As captain, Kyle Walker was last up and, following in the footsteps of Vincent Kompany, Fernandinho and Ilkay Gundogan, collected the coveted piece of silverware. That was accompanied by pyrotechnics, fan chants and blue confetti.
