Pep Guardiola has become the third manager in the history of the Premier League to have won the EPL title in successive seasons.

The Spanish tactician guided Manchester City to their second league triumph in three years following their 4-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on last match day.

A goal each from Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte, Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez rendered Glenn Murray early goal a mere consolation after regulation period.

The Citizens went ahead to beat contenders Liverpool to the title with 98 points – just one better than Jurgen Klopp’s armies.

Guardiola now joins Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho as the three managers in the English topflight to have achieved such success during their reigns.

Ferguson won back to back EPL titles with Manchester United, while Mourinho replicated that with Chelsea during his first spell at Stamford Bridge.

Guardiola also becomes the first manager to win back-to-back league titles in Spain, Germany and England.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich handler was also the first manager to win the EPL title with record 100 points in a single season.
