Celebrate City's Premier League win by picking up some official merchandise from the Champions range!

A sunny spring afternoon met the end of season clash at St Mary's and with Swansea soon falling behind to Stoke, it turned into a relaxed and celebratory afternoon for everyone present.

After finishing the season with a 1-0 win at Southampton, City also secured a record 32 wins in one campaign. There were two scenarios: if we went down or we stayed up.

The Brazil goalkeeper, 24, was nominated for the Professional Footballers' Association Young Player of the Year award on the basis of his strong performance this season.

Every player bar Sergio Aguero and Silva was presented to the sea of blue watching on in Deansgate, the former recovering from his knee injury in Argentina - and the latter travelling back home to spend time with his six-month old son, Mateo.


The Portuguese's calling card has been to win leagues wherever he has managed, but even Mourinho has tempered expectations that the gap to City can be breached in one season.

Then there's Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp's team have shown their potential in making a run to the final of the Champions League, with the Reds blitzing Man City in the quarter finals of the competition.

However, Hughes continued his record of never being relegated as a manager by turning around Southampton's form and guiding them to safety; they ended the season in 17th, three points clear of the relegation places. The Premier League is the most important thing. And Jesus seemed the most likely man to do it. City started the match without an out-and-out striker but whereas it has worked for them in the past, they needed the introduction of Jesus on the hour mark to step up their threat.

One of the few remaining issues heading into the final day of the Premier League season was who would finish fourth place in the top-flight and clinch a Champions League spot. When I was a little boy I always say England was a little bit like a paradise.

"You are a top human being, I will be in your debt forever so thank you very much", he said.
