Some fans can be seen wearing masks while others can be seen ignoring social distancing rules currently in place in the UK.
Fans across the world were also captured celebrating their side's first league title in three decades.
Liverpool have clinched the title with seven games to spare and are now 23 points ahead of City.
Christian Pulisic opened the scoring in the first half for Chelsea before Kevin De Bruyne pulled one back in the second half with a sensational free-kick.
However, City would be reduced to 10 men late into the second half after Fernandinho scraped the ball off the line with his hand.
Willian stepped up and converted the subsequent penalty as Chelsea sealed all three points.

City boss Pep Guardiola already extended his congratulations to Liverpool boss Klopp ahead of the Chelsea clash.
"I have other options. We have a few players injured," the Spaniard told BT Sport.
"Listen, we cannot win titles. But we cannot deny this tough week.
"Congratulations to Liverpool, they have won it. Champions League qualification, we are in a good position so the FA Cup becomes important. We have three or four academy players on the bench.
"I think all the managers didn't know how the teams would be after these exceptional situations. We got a good result [against Burnley] and that was the important thing."
