MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester staged a Premier League trophy parade for the fourth straight year Monday when Man City players celebrated a second title in three years with an open-top bus tour through a packed downtown.

With morning rain giving way to blue skies, tens of thousands of City fans turned out to honor the team a day after its 2-0 victory over West Ham clinched the league championship. City also won the League Cup in manager Manuel Pellegrini's first season in charge.

Looking down on flag-waving, horn-blowing supporters lining the streets, City captain Vincent Kompany said "Manchester is blue today — and it's a pretty sight."

City's fierce rival, Manchester United, won the Premier League in 2011 and 2013.
