It took them long enough, but finally Manchester City have been confirmed as Premier League champions.

As was fitting for a season as bizarre as this one, the circumstances of their victory were pretty strange. In the end, Leicester City's 2-1 victory over Manchester United's C team was the clincher - not exactly the stuff dreams are made of.

That did not stop the club's (and 90min's) social media admins dumping all their carefully curated celebratory content, though...

After that the players and fans got involved...

It did not take long for the first hot take to come either, courtesy of that famed bastion of footballing knowledge, Robbie Savage.

Speaking on BT Sport the former Leicester City, Blackburn Rovers and Birmingham City midfielder claimed that the third title made Pep Guardiola the best Premier League manager in history.

Unsurprisingly, Savage's bold claims did not go unnoticed on Twitter.

The debate did not stop there, of course. There was plenty more Pep vs anti-Pep discourse to go around and we do not envisage it stopping anytime soon.
