5 Talking Points from the Sporting Weekend

Five talking points from some of the weekend's sporting highlights.  

Manchester is Blue

Manchester City were crowned English Premier League champions following Manchester United's failure to win at home against West Brom.

Check out the best memes and reactions from their celebrations. After their loss to United and two Champions League losses to Liverpool, City picked themselves up to beat Tottenham 3 - 1, and that left them one win away from securing the title. But United's shock defeat against the Baggies saw them Pep and his charges popping corks earlier than expected.

With five fixtures remaining in their season, the team have already scored 93 goals and conceded just 25 thus far, losing two matches and drawing three.

PSG are widely expected to dominate Ligue 1 for the foreseeable future but are desperate to become a genuine superpower in continental competition, something that feat Emery struggled to achieve.
