While Pep Guardiola’s Man City men already look favourites to win the 2016/17 Premier League title, the club’s women’s team sealed their first-ever WSL title after beating Chelsea 2-0 on Sunday.
An own-goal from Chelsea captain Katie Chapman followed by a Toni Duggan penalty secured the Citizens’ their 12th win in 15 games this season and thus sealed their place at the top of the WSL table, an unassailable 10 points clear of the Blues.
In all competitions this season, Nick Cushing’s side have conceded just three goals and look in a very good position to dominate the women’s game for years to come. All this comes less than three seasons since the club made their top-flight bow in 2012/13.
City will now turn their attention to the Continental Cup final next month, where they face Birmingham City.
Well done City!
