Benjamin Mendy leads social media celebrations as City defend PL title

Manchester City’s Premier League champions were quickly on social media to celebrate their success after a 4-1 win at Brighton secured the title on the final day of the season.

Benjamin Mendy, who has missed much of the season through injury, tweeted: “Looks like we’re @premierleague back to back CHAMPIONS (waiting for the VAR to confirm, we never know ….)”, perhaps referring to City’s disallowed goal against Tottenham in the Champions League.

The full-back’s teammates mostly focused on the back-to-back nature of this title success, the Citizens having become the first team to successfully defend their crown since Manchester United in 2009.

“WE DID IT AGAIN” Leroy Sane tweeted, while Aymeric Laporte shared a picture of himself with the trophy and the caption: “Back to back!”

The trophy meanwhile received plenty of attention in the City dressing room, Oleksandr Zinchenko giving it a kiss after the game.

“COME TO ME MY LOVELY” he wrote on Instagram, while goalkeeper Ederson simply shared a picture of himself with the trophy over his shoulder.

And finally, the back-to-back championships meant the same to a legend of the club’s midfield as it did to the future of the side.

“We did it again! CHAMPIONS OF ENGLAND!!! C’MOOONN!” tweeted David Silva, while Phil Foden simply wrote “BACK 2 BACK” on Instagram.

FourFourTwo Staff

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
