Manchester City won their fifth Premier League title in six years on Sunday after defeating Chelsea 1-0.
Arsenal lost against Nottingham Forest a day ago, continuing their late-season collapse. City won the championship with three games remaining.
After City's midweek success over European champions Real Madrid, Pep Guardiola made a lot of changes for Chelsea's visit. The visitors' chances didn't improve with just Kyle Walker and Manuel Akanji.
City took off after a Frank Lampard-led guard of honor. Two kids started for the first time and scored after 12 minutes.
Cole Palmer broke down the left before passing to Julian Alvarez. The World Cup champion took it well on the right side of the box and slotted past Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga, who replaced Edouard Mendy.
Alvarez scored his 17th goal in all competitions in a remarkable first season that has gone under the radar due to the extraordinary teammate he replaced tonight.
Phil Foden, who won his sixth Premier League title before turning 23, was allowed to play freely. The England international twisted and turned before feeding Palmer and Riyad Mahrez. He seemed to control the pace and determine whether City scored a cricket score.
Chelsea thought otherwise. They responded with several opportunities, notably via Raheem Sterling, who returned to Etihad Stadium after leaving last summer as a four-time league winner.
