Manchester City Wins English Premier League Title After Manchester United Stumbles

  • Guardiola adamant Man City are no Champions League flops

Pep Guardiola's side won the league with five games to spare, but in a manner most unexpected after a slip-up by their city rivals.

"They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points".

City's Champions League conqueror moved ever closer to sealing its place in the competition next season as Liverpool cruised past Bournemouth with Salah again taking centrestage.

It is ironic that United came back from 2-0 down against City themselves last weekend to win 3-2 and delay City's party, only to surrender so tamely on home soil.

It's been held by Manchester United since 2001.

Kompany and co. have the opportunity to secure the highest number of wins, points and goals scored in a Premier League season.

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.

Guardiola and his players will have the chance to celebrate properly next Sunday when they host Swansea in their next fixture.

City were without Aguero, who had suffered a rib injury in a vehicle crash, but Kevin De Bruyne made sure the Argentina striker wasn't missed as he slammed in the victor in the 67th minute.

City's title win is the third of Kompany's 10-year Etihad career.

Beaten just once while winning 29 of their 38 games, Chelsea finished 12 points clear to claim their first top-flight title in 50 years and only the second in the club's history.

"The way we played helped us reach our target".

"It's the same feeling as the first time and you can't describe it", the Belgian told Sky Sports. They lost only two matches because they were the best team.

"It shows how football is in Manchester". "The Premier League is the constant - every day, every day, every day - and we were there every day".

He missed many games as a a result of the incident as he had to travel to Spain where he spent time with his wife and family. "It's a privilege to be a part of this team".

City manager Pep Guardiola might have rubbed his eyes in disbelief at events at Old Trafford when he returned from his round of golf with his son.

A serial victor as a manager with Barcelona and Bayern, Guardiola ended his first year in England at City without silverware - his only failure to win a trophy since his managerial career started back in 2007.
