Manchester City Win Premier League Title

Manchester City have won the Barclays

Premier League title with a 2-0 defeat over

West Ham United at home.

Goals either side of half-time from Samir

Nasri and Vincent Kompany saw City capture

the title with an easy victory.

Manuel Pellegrini's side led second-place

Liverpool by only two points in the league

heading into the match.

But their sizeable goal difference meant a

draw against West Ham at Etihad Stadium

would be enough to take the title.

The title is Man City's second in three seasons.

For Liverpool, only victory over Newcastle

United and a shock West Ham win could have

seen them finish the season on top.

Liverpool ends the season two points below

City after coming from behind to win 2-1 at home.

Man City received a boost for their final match

with the return of Argentine striker Sergio

Aguero from a groin injury.

Aguero's return was the only change from the

City side which beat Aston Villa 4-0 mid-week.

But it was Nasri who broke through West

Ham's defences six minutes before the

interval, taking aim from 20 yards with a

powerful shot which went in off the post.

The goal was followed by another four minutes

into the second half when Kompany struck

home from six yards after Edin Dzeko won the

ball from a corner.

Aguero had two chances to extend City's lead,

but his header sailed wide at the near post and

he later failed to score before an open goal

from a Zabaleta cross.
