EPL: How Manchester City players reacted following Arsenal's 1-0 loss to Nottingham.

Arsenal's bid for their first Premier League title since Arsene Wenger's 2004 squad came to an end on Saturday.

It all came to an end when Mikel Arteta's men were defeated 1-0 by Nottingham Forest, and the defeat meant that Manchester City had won the title for the second time.

The Gunners needed Nottingham Forest and hoped Manchester City lost all three of their remaining games, but they couldn't even keep their end of the bargain.

Having watched Arsenal fall like a pack of cards, Manchester City players celebrated wildly as it was confirmed they are Premier League champions for a third consecutive campaign.

The Citizens wrapped up the title with three games to spare having won 11 top-flight matches in a row.

And they capitalised on Arsenal dropping points in recent weeks to return to the summit of the table.

City would have been crowned as champions if they had beaten Chelsea at the Etihad on Sunday.

But after the Gunners lost 1-0 away at Nottingham Forest on Sunday, City sealed the title without having to kick a ball.

The City squad, who anticipated the outcome, watched the clash together, with their reaction to the full-time whistle being filmed by their media team.

Sharing a video of their celebrations on Twitter, the players could be seen sitting down as they anxiously waited for the whistle to go.

And as referee Anthony Taylor sounded the end of the game, the players jumped for joy.
