Players, Fans, React To Manchester City's Title Win And United's Loss

I'm probably the first one to think about next season, I would like to stay humble, this is not a dynasty. Last not 20 years ago, it was three.

United had to at least draw to keep the title race mathematically alive but they were stunned at Old Trafford when Jay Rodriguez headed home after the break.

"This is my third title with City and it's just a relief not to have to wait the final day this time!" said Aguero, who is City's top scorer this season with 30 goals.

Yet for the four decades I can properly remember watching football, there has been no title-winner who has played a more bewitching brand of football. The Belgium worldwide was eager to draw on comparisons with Guardola's Barcelona and Bayern Munich sides, insisting that Manchester City are more complete as a collective.

I have seen many teams win it as champions for the whole season, and it's the first case for us.

City manager Pep Guardiola might have missed one of the proudest moments of his career, however, after admitting on Saturday that he had a round of golf booked with his son and was not planning to watch United's game.

The Premier League points and goals records are also likely to be smashed but the true test of whether City deserve their status in the list of all-time greats will be what comes next.

"We're looking forward to the celebrations, but first we have five important games to play and we want to win them all".

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne on Twitter: Unbelievable season for us. City has 87 points. "But we are nothing without the team".

It could be argued that the strength in depth at the top of the league is greater now than it was then, that each one of the Big Six has a highly accomplished team.

City will be new target, with clubs having had a full season to wise up to Guardiola's style.

"They wilted at Anfield in the Champions League and collapsed at their own title party a few days later, caught in a whirlwind as Manchester United swarmed all over them, back from the dead when all hope had looked lost". But expect one thing: statistics like scoring almost three goals per game, having almost 90 percent passing accuracy and averaging 72.7 percent possession are likely to continue.

Kompany said after winning the league that there is so much more potential to be unlocked in the blue half of Manchester.
