Man City defeated West Ham 3-1 on Sunday to become the first team in history to win four consecutive English Premier League titles.

City jumped out to an early lead thanks to a spectacular goal from Phil Foden, knowing that victory would see them surpass Arsenal for the championship.

The Premier League Player of the Season quickly added his second, and after Mohamed Kudus had equalized with an incredible overhead kick, Rodri gave City breathing room.

At the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal successfully defeated Everton 2-1, but Mikel Arteta’s team was not helped by the Hammers.

The Gunners’ championship run this season was stronger than last year, as they were in the running right up to the very end.

However, Rodri, a star for City, pointed out that one of the reasons City were able to create history was the mentality that separated the two teams.

When asked how City keep winning titles, the Spaniard told Optus Sport: “It’s the mentality. Great players are all over the league, at all the clubs. Arsenal also, they did an unbelievable season.

“But I think the difference was here [the mentality]. When Arsenal came here at the Etihad, I saw them. Ah, these guys, they don’t want to beat us, they just want to draw. And that mentality, we wouldn’t do it the same way…”

In March, Arsenal held City to a scoreless draw at the Etihad, as Arteta’s team adopted a totally different strategy to effectively thwart City’s prolific scoring onslaught.

Arsenal continued to lose points and City passed them, even if that outcome maintained them one point ahead of them in the standings.
