09 Apr Relive Premier League Title Winning Best Moments
Manchester City had their impending crowning as Premier League Champions unceremoniously delayed this weekend after a defeat to fellow Manchester rivals United. The heartache is sure to be shortlived (we think), in the meantime we have revisited moments the champions-elect are set to experience as we take a look at the most memorable title wins to date.
In the 1998/99 season, Manchester United became the first English club to win the Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League treble.
An era of football dominated by Manchester United under the reign of Sir Alex Ferguson. As they went on to set a still standing record of being the first team to win three consecutive Premier League titles.
As they went on to win the title 6 times in the last 8 seasons up to the 1999-00 season. #domination
Who can forget one of the most iconic moments in Premier League History as Manchester City went on to win the Premier League on the final day of the 2011/12 season.
A final few seconds to fill Premier League highlight reels for years. Sergio Aguero produced a moment of play that couldn’t be scripted, as his goal against QPR in stoppage time – clinched the Premier League title with seconds to spare.
Losing 2 -1 with only stoppage time left, a Edin Dzeko equaliser in the 92 minute, set-up something which will surely never be seen again, that caused Martin Tyler’s “Aguerooooo” commentary which is still iconic today.
Arsenal have failed to win the Premier League for the 15th consecutive season, however the Team last to bring England’s top prize to North London, was arguably the best in the history of the Premier League.
In the 2003/04 season, Arsenal became the first team since Preston North End in 1888-89 to achieve the feat of going a whole domestic season unbeaten. Their triumphs saw them titled as what must now be the legendary ‘Invincibles‘.
The 2015/16 Premier League season was like no other, and still asks you to beg the question, did Leicester City really win the Premier League?
Match of the Day presenter, Gary Linker, wishing upon the impossible, went as far as promising to record the final showing of MOTD that season in only his underwear if Leicester City went on too defy the odds…and so they did.
With many believing it to be merely an unbelievable period of form, which would surely see Leicester fall short towards the business end of the season, how wrong we were. Finishing 10 points ahead of Arsenal, they secured the title with 2 games to go.
