Records tumble as Manchester City crowned Premier League Champions

Monday, 16 Apr, 2018

"The difference is that we were consistent the whole season and played at the level we are expected to perform at", Kompany said.

"Today is a sense of achievement because we've won the title in a way for the first time, I'd like to have won all other titles, so I'm extremely proud about this, and extremely aware of how fast these moments can go". It is important to believe because Manchester City is not like United or Chelsea or Arsenal - you know, the big clubs in England who have a big history behind them. It's clear their overall performances have been very similar, though you don't hear the 2009-10 Chelsea side described as potentially one of the best ever, as you do with City. Of course it's not going to happen next season the same - it's impossible.

"You can not imagine", Guardiola said on Saturday.

City have won the league twice before in the Premier League era but failed on each occasion to retain the trophy, something captain Kompany hopes this squad can put right next year.

"It's more complicated. But I think for the club, not just the players, all the departments in the club can believe. City were the best team, sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league", Mourinho said. "That will give us a lot of points in the future". Yet Arsenal and Chelsea are in flux, Spurs don't possess a champion's psyche, Liverpool sell their top stars and United exist under the brooding negativity that Jose Mourinho so often projects. We won few games.

"I think winning at Stamford Bridge gave us the confidence that we could do it".

Under Roberto Mancini in 2012 they clinched it with a last-gasp Sergio Aguero victor at Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the season while in 2014 under Manuel Pellegrini it also went down to the wire.

"But in general we were so stable".

Silva has also chipped in with his share of important goals - opening the scoring in the first Manchester derby of the season at Old Trafford.

While City's eye-catching style of play has had the purists purring, Pep Guardiola's men also have a ruthless side that has served them well in their toughest tests. "So we won with guys that are so young".

Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday after Manchester United crashed to a shock 1-0 defeat against West Brom as coach Pep Guardiola added a first English title to his three apiece at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

"Wednesday afternoon we will be back".

'We have to try, ' said Guardiola.

After sacking Alan Pardew at the start of the month, Darren Moore has been handed the West Brom until the end of the season.
