Manchester City will lift the Premier League trophy this weekend - but which players will receive a winners' medal?
A third title triumph in seven years was confirmed when Manchester United's 1-0 defeat at home to West Brom left City with an unassailable lead at the top.
Man City confirmed as champions
Manchester City have won the Premier League title following Manchester United's shock defeat against West Brom.
City will still harbour hopes of breaking Chelsea's points record of 95 - and with Pep Guardiola's side currently on 93 with three games remaining, the 100-point barrier could yet be broken.
Here are a look at the finer details of City's title triumph.
When is the trophy presentation?
The trophy presentation will take place on Sunday, May 6, when City host Huddersfield at the Etihad Stadium, live on Sky Sports Premier League.
This is despite that fixture being City's penultimate home game of the Premier League campaign - they finish their home schedule with the rearranged clash with Brighton on May 9.
Who will lift the trophy?
The honour of lifting the trophy typically falls to the winning captain. That means Vincent Kompany will raise it aloft for the third time in seven seasons. Only John Terry (five) and Roy Keane (four) have lifted the trophy more times as captain since the competition's inception in 1992/93.
Who gets a winners' medal?
You need to have played five Premier League games for the champions to be eligible for a winners' medal. However, City will be given 40 commemorative medals in total, so once those players who have qualified for a medal have received theirs, the club can decide which members of the coaching staff, officials and other players also receive one.
With four league games to go, here's a list of appearances made by Man City players this season:
- Ederson - 35
- Kevin De Bruyne - 35
- Nicolas Otamendi - 33
- Bernardo Silva - 32
- Fernandinho - 31
- Kyle Walker - 31
- Raheem Sterling - 31
- Leroy Sane - 29
- David Silva - 28
- Ilkay Gundogan - 27
- Gabriel Jesus - 26
- Sergio Aguero - 25
- Danilo - 21
- Fabian Delph - 20
- John Stones - 16
- Vincent Kompany - 16
- Eliaquim Mangala - 9
- Yaya Toure - 9
- Oleksandr Zinchenko - 7
- Aymeric Laporte - 7
- Benjamin Mendy - 5
- Phil Foden - 4
- Brahim Diaz - 3
- Claudio Bravo - 1
- Lukas Nmecha - 1
Will Man City receive pre-game guards of honour?
The tradition is not compulsory but at the discretion of the champions' opponents. Swansea and West Ham have given a guard of honour, and their remaining Premier League opponents are expected to do the same.
