Twitter reacts as Man City wins Premier League

The City title was inevitable, but amongst the celebratory Tweets are a lot of “Wow” moments for United’s loss and City’s amazing run.

So, is Jay Rodriguez now a Man City legend?— Joe Prince-Wright (@JPW_NBCSports) April 15, 2018
Regardless, Jay Rod and Jonny Evans pretty much just secured their move to Man City this summer... 👀
Nothing more dramatic than winning a title by sitting on the couch.— Jonah Freedman (@jonahfreedman) April 15, 2018
City fans - better to be crowned champions by beating your fiercest rivals at home? Or watch on as they hand it to you by losing to the worst team in the league? What a strange week.— Richard Conway (@richard_conway) April 15, 2018
240 - Manchester City's 240 day total at the top of the league in 2017-18 is just one day fewer than Manchester United have spent at the top of the Premier League (in season) since Sergio Aguero's goal won the title in May 2012 (241). Noisy.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) April 15, 2018
Apart from the FA Cup tie at Anfield, that was comfortably the best West Brom performance I've seen in at least 18 months. They actually looked like footballers again. Yes #MUFC were abject -- really really abject -- but #WBA looked far better than the table suggests— Oliver Kay (@OliverKay) April 15, 2018
Manchester United ensure Manchester City equal Manchester United’s PL record of winning title with five games to go.— Duncan Alexander (@oilysailor) April 15, 2018
5 - Man City have won the Premier League title with five games remaining; equalling the English top-flight record. They have equalled the efforts of Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85) who all won the top-flight title with five games to spare.

Now more than ever, a "Manager Swap" TV show is badly needed because I am dying to see what Pep can do with West Brom— Charles Boehm (@cboehm) April 15, 2018
