Could Epl Title Win Be The Start Of A Man City Dynasty?
By winning their third title in 7 seasons since first being backed by the petro-dollars of Abu Dhabi billionaire Sheikh Mansour, Manchester City can justifiably claim to be the outstanding Premier League club of the current decade.
Even more alarming for their rivals, though, after Manchester United’s 1-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday sealed City’s triumph is that Pep Guardiola’s latest fabulous creation may only be at the dawn of a potential new dynasty.
Yet, even if City’s season has already been a majestic success, what with a League Cup triumph and winning the EPL with a record-equalling five matches to spare, a better measure will only come by the end of next season.
For no English champions have successfully defended their EPL crown since City’s once lordly neighbours United won the title for a third straight season in 2008-09.
Yet if any team look capable of bucking this trend, it is Guardiola’s latest potential masterpiece, which, remember, is still a work in progress.
Those performances offered others a blueprint of how to knock City out of their aristocratic stride.
