There may not even be a full-fledged title celebration in any respect. Pep Guardiola mentioned after the Tottenham victory that he wouldn’t even be watching Sunday’s match at Previous Trafford. He’d be enjoying golf as a substitute. Gamers mentioned they’d be with household. That, partly, explains simply how unlikely a West Brom victory was.

However by season’s finish, Metropolis’s title shall be no much less passable. It will likely be no much less spectacular. A moderately anti-climactic decider gained’t depress the eventual celebrations.

The Residents clinched the crown with 5 matches to spare, and 16 factors between them and second-place United. It isn’t fairly the document for earliest title-winning date. That one will stick with 2000-01 Manchester United by at some point.

However Metropolis nonetheless has possibilities to interrupt different Premier League information. It’s eight factors away from 2004-05 Chelsea’s best-ever mark of 95. It will possibly set prime marks for many targets (103, 2009-10 Chelsea) and most wins (30, 2016-17 Chelsea).

It has been a sensible season for Metropolis, one which in some ways deserved to finish with a title celebration after a victory over United final weekend. It didn’t. However Metropolis will elevate its trophy anyway. West Brom made positive of that on Sunday.
