City's maiden PL2 title triumph in pictures

City’s Elite Development Squad (EDS) have clinched their first ever Premier League 2 title.

Following our 3-0 derby victory over Manchester United on Friday, Enzo Maresca’s men knew top spot was guaranteed if both Tottenham and Blackburn failed to win their respective matches.

And with Spurs losing 4-1 to Chelsea and Blackburn’s 2-2 draw against Liverpool, our Young Blues have been confirmed as PL2 champions.

It is just rewards for the relentless efforts of a tight-knit, hardworking squad who have given their all for the players around them whenever stepping over the white line.

City have led the way since early February’s victory over Everton and, with three games remaining, sit 10 points clear of second-placed Chelsea/Blackburn.

Enzo Maresca’s youngsters have won 14 of their 21 matches so far this season, drawing five, losing on just two occasions and scoring 68 goals in the process.

Indeed, that incredible attacking record sees them 21 clear of any other PL2 side in the scoring charts, helped in no small part by two seven-goal hauls against Liverpool and Southampton.

With stoppage time winners, hat-trick heroes, scintillating team performances and gritty 10-man battles, there have been plenty of thrills and spills across an historic campaign.
