Premier League trophy suffers accident at the Etihad stadium

- Manchester City on Sunday, May 6, lifted the 2017/18 Premier League title

- But the trophy suffered accident due to the way the players celebrated

- The Citizens still have two more games to play to end the League season

On Sunday, May 6, newly crowned Premier League champions Manchester City lifted the 2017/18 Premier League title after waiting for three weeks for the arrival of the trophy.

City players were so excited at the Etihad stadium despite been forced to a goalless draw by visiting Huddersfield who are fighting to escape relegation.

The Citizens jumped around when club talisman Yaya Toure took the stage as the Ivory Coast star will be leaving the club at the end of the season.

But Oleksandr Zinchenko inched a little too close to the trophy and sent it flying off its pedestal and crashing to the grass.

The Premier League title might still need a little fine-tuning as Ilkay Gundogan joked on social media after lifting the trophy.

Meanwhile, with two games to the end of the season, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Yaya Toure will leave the club this summer.
