Vincent Kompany delivers epic victory speech to Manchester City fans and players

Manchester City's Aguero out of Tottenham clash

Manchester City won the Premier League title Sunday, after West Bromwich Albion beat Manchester United.

However, while football writers up and down the country scrambled to push something out about City winning the title in their rivals' shock loss to the Baggies, the Citizens had their own celebration prepped. Some pundits are already ranking City - who at one stage this season won a record 18 successive league games - alongside Manchester United's 1999 treble winners and the 2003-04 Arsenal "Invincibles".

"But I've seen many teams win it as champions for the whole season and in our case it's the first time now". "The amount of goals, chances and points, to do that in the Premier League, with the contenders we have, is because the players are so good". It's fantastic, such a hard achievement and I'm proud of the team and everyone involved.

They could have made history and sealed the earliest Premier League title by beating United on 7 April at Etihad Stadium, but let slip a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2.

Guardiola also praised his young players - with Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus scoring crucial goals - and he believes they will learn from their Champions League disappointment.

And it was achieved by playing a brand of football that has had the purists purring all season with City racking up 93 goals so far and on course to top the 100-point barrier.

"Thanks to everyone for supporting me in this tough year!"

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

"The first one was special but this one is perhaps the one I'm most proud of".

"I've never been able to retain the title and I wanna see if this team's got it to carry on and be even more successful".

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in ideal style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.

Speaking after the win over Tottenham, Guardiola admitted winning the title in England would be one of the greatest achievements of his glittering career. That's the reason why they were champions.

"I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulate them face to face when I had the chance", Mourinho said. If Silva is the magician, De Bruyne is the relentless force — bringing a directness to City's attacking play. We're super happy but there's still so much work to be done before this squad's full potential is unlocked.
