Man City eye record books after clinching title

Share

City are 16 points clear of second placed United, who can only take a maximum of 15 points from their remaining five games.

Whether they deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Manchester United's 1999 treble winners or the 2004 Arsenal "Invincibles" is up for debate.

It is the third time in seven seasons City have won the title, and the first in Pep Guardiola's reign.

"My feeling is that United will win a lot of points because they are in a good shape and have top players".

It reflected City's specialness, just as the records of this season should. Previous times, we almost threw it away and that was a feature of every season we won it. It was always a matter of when rather than if City would be champions after they led the way for most of the season.

But Guardiola believes the 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge was a pivotal moment when Kevin De Bruyne's goal saw them pick up a deserved three points after dominating against the defending champions.

Silva has been a key figure for City for much of the season, putting in some inspirational performances that have seen him nominated for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award.

Here is nother feat they can achieve: City have won 14 games away from home this season and have two to go away from home - winning both of those would beat Chelsea's record of 15.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinhosaid: "I think we were deservedly punished".

Unlike Belgian defender Kompany, Guardiola spent Sunday afternoon playing golf with his son instead of watching the United match. Pep Guardiola on another hand further cemented his legacy in history books as he became the first Spanish manager to win the league title in England. "The last week was tough for us", Guardiola said.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said.

"He has been able to transfer to the team that hunger and desire to never be satisfied". He won three league titles with Barcelona and twice lifted the Champions League trophy during his Camp Nou reign.

I'm buzzing, over the moon, so happy and proud to be able to share this with all of our fans, everybody who's been there to support us especially in this last week as many know it's been very hard but at the same time we've bounced back, we're champions now and thank you to all of you, It's an incredible season.

"This club is absolutely wonderful in all terms".
