The club claimed a seventh successive Chinese Super League crown, although manager Luiz Felipe Scolari's future remains uncertain

Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao cruised to a seventh straight Chinese Super League title in style on Sunday, with a 5-1 hammering of Guizhou Zhicheng.

With two league games remaining, this victory gave the club an unassailable nine-point lead over second-placed Shanghai SIPG, who went down 2-1 to Guangzhou R&F.

Alan scored his 10th goal of the season in the victory, leaving him second on the team to fellow Brazilian Ricardo Goulart, who has 20.

It is Luiz Felipe Scolari's third successive title since replacing Fabio Cannavaro in 2015, although it may well be the Brazilian's last, with his contract due to expire.

With Scolari's future in China uncertain, both Thomas Tuchel and former Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti have been linked with the job.
