Manchester City 2017-18: Guardiola's men rack up records in title triumph

Like all of us, Manchester City's iconic captain Vincent Kompany probably wasn't expecting West Brom to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford tonight, crowning City as the 2017/18 Premier League champions. We concede goals, but the most important details is not the goals you concede but the chances you concede and every game was few, despite playing so offensively.

Sterling put in an impressive display as Manchester City breezed past Tottenham 3-1 at Wembley yesterday.

"You can't take them for granted - I've been lucky to win three but there have been so many I've missed as well", said Kompany. The first league with Barcelona was a dream come true and winning the Champions League against [Manchester] United here was also so, so nice, especially the way we played.

"But in our defence, we can only be judged on a period of time, so we need, two, three or four years in a row and if at the end of this we are consistent like we have been this season, then perhaps but we have taken one step, that all we can do at the moment".

Otherwise City have the chance to clinch the title at home by beating Swansea next Sunday.

The win over Chelsea was part of a remarkable 18-game unbeaten streak in the league that was only stopped by Liverpool in January.

"You can not imagine", Guardiola said. "I have never been able to retain a title and I want to see if this team has got it to carry on and be even more successful".

"I don't know if I was the first or if I was the second or the third, but I congratulated them face-to-face when I had the chance to do it". Thank you for your support all season!

The Champions League is seven games, you can win the Champions League but the league is every three days in the same month.

'Against Tottenham [the players] showed me how strong they were.

Raheem Sterling will be one of the best players in the world if he can become a better finisher, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes. We are good too, like the other ones.' And maybe that helps us. Of course it's not going to happen next season the same - it's impossible. Man City's Kevin De Bruyne acknowledges the tiredness within the squad and how important it was to see off Spurs after a hard string of matches.
