From Ederson to De Bruyne, players who helped City win title

Mourinho claimed afterwards that he had not been happy after the City result because he knew they would win the league regardless and he accused some of his players of getting carried away.

It is Abu Dhabi-owned City's third title in seven seasons and their first since former boss Manuel Pellegrini achieved the feat in 2013-14.

Guardiola and his players will have the chance to celebrate properly on Sunday when they host Swansea in their next fixture. They were unbeaten in the Premier League until January 14, when Liverpool ended that fantastic run at Anfield.

"I knew that sooner or later they would be (champions) and if I was in their position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Brom".

The England worldwide scored one against Spurs and won a penalty in a man-of-the-match display, but missed two glaring chances and his prowess in front of goal has always been his weakness.


The England worldwide is City's second-highest scorer behind Sergio Aguero but his goals have also come at some key moments on their road to the title.

Henceforth, City would eye surpassing Chelsea's record 95 points accumulated in a single season.

Vincent Kompany is already looking ahead to next season, just hours after Manchester City were confirmed as the 2017/18 Premier League champions following Manchester United's shock defeat to West Brom at Old Trafford.

Word quickly got around through social media and City fans queued outside a venue still advertising United's televised clash with the Baggies in a bid to join fellow supporters inside, where the players were seen belting out Oasis' Wonderwall and being serenaded by supporters expressing their delight and gratitude.

"It shows what football is in Manchester".


City had moved within touching distance of the title with a 3-1 win at Tottenham on Saturday. Today was a day for the blues and there have been more days for the reds.

"You can't take it for granted", Kompany said. I'd like to stay humble - this is not a dynasty, it's one title.

"I'm so happy with our season and we need to realise that we need to keep pushing and to keep working because to play at this level is about being consistent and showing better quality", he said. There was a period of adaptation for him coming into the league and for us taking in his methods.

"Okay, Sergio [Aguero] is a genius, a top player but about 30-years-old".
