Manchester City return to Etihad to celebrate Premier League title with fans

Pep Guardiola's side successfully defended the title after a 4-1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion

Manchester City became the first club in 10 years to successfully defend the Premier League title after a 4-1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's side led Liverpool by one point heading into Sunday's final round of fixtures and needed to match their rivals' result to keep the trophy at the Etihad.

City did so emphatically, quickly responding from going 1-0 down to win 4-1 at the Amex Stadium, securing the second-most amount of points in a Premier League season, behind only their own record set last year.

After prolonged celebrations on the Brighton pitch, City took the party back to Manchester to share their joy with supporters at the Etihad Stadium.

On stage, Guardiola paid tribute to "incredible" Liverpool while fireworks were set off to mark the club's success.
