Manchester City regained English soccer’s Premier League title with a 2-0 win over West Ham United on the season’s final day.
Samir Nasri and Vincent Kompany scored as City beat the visiting Hammers to reach 86 points, leaving Liverpool in second place after the Reds won 2-1 against Newcastle at Anfield. City needed only a draw today to guarantee the title, just its second since 1968.
City, the sixth-richest soccer club, won the title on the final day of the 2012 season, and then lost it to Manchester United last season.
