Guardiola turns Man City into PL's great untouchables

Manchester City's domination of the domestic game is now so all-consuming that a historic fourth successive Premier League title is treated like an inevitable matter of routine.

City went into the final game of the season ahead for the sixth time in seven seasons needing only a win over West Ham United to lift the crown once more - and they duly delivered.

In doing so, Pep Guardiola's all-conquering team once again proved they are the great untouchables of the Premier League.

They appear impervious to normal pressures - and the fact they have rewritten the record books will barely provoke excessive comment or deep-dive analysis. It was expected. The seismic shock would have been failure to complete their mission.

It is a stretch to say Manchester City have become so aligned with success that these unprecedented feats are met with a shrug of the shoulders, but the fact they have won 19 and drawn four of 23 league games since losing at Aston Villa in December has surprised very few.

This is where the elephant in the room must be mentioned because every City success will be accompanied by the narrative that they still face 115 Premier League charges for alleged financial irregularities - charges the club are at pains to stress they strenuously deny.

It is 15 months since those charges were levelled at the club. Unless and until there is clarity and a verdict, City will always be subjected to this outside noise and suspicion every time they win a trophy.

If the measure is football, however, there are no arguments.

Great footballing team, no doubt; some of their play this season has been sublime; and Foden, Silva and Rodri have been immense.

 

However, the charges relating to FFP really need to be addressed, whatever the outcome may be; they hang like Damocles sword over all their achievements, and leaving them unresolved is unfair on other Premiership teams and is a stain on the Premier League.
