Man City eye record books after clinching title

Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions this afternoon due to local rivals Manchester United losing to West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford.

It evoked memories of Sir Alex Ferguson, the former United manager, being on the golf course when he heard his team had clinched their first Premier League title following Oldham Athletic's victory at Aston Villa in May 1993.

It's the first time that he hasn't won the title on the final game of the season after their successes in 2012 and 2014 and now wants to see if they are capable of defending their crown for the first time.

Pep Guardiola's side have scored 93 goals in 33 games so far this season, putting them 16 points clear of United at the top.

He said: 'It is the same feeling as the first time, you can't describe it. "When I was 20 I would have been a flawless player for him", he said.

In his second season in charge, Guardiola, aided by the vast financial backing of City´s Abu Dhabi-based owners, has created a sublime team that helped him become the first Spanish coach to win the English top-flight title. "I've never been able to retain a title and I want to see whether this team can be even more successful".

Vincent Kompany says it's too early to say whether they are the best EPL team ever.

Kompany and several of his teammates later toasted their title triumph with fans.

"I'm enjoying life, but it's always a question of financial security", Nagelsmann said , as reported by the Bundesliga's official website .

The 32-year-old then popped down to the local pub where he met up with team-mates Bernardo Silva, John Stones, Fabian Delph and Kyle Walker.

City captain Kompany watched the match at the house of his Mancunian wife Carla Higgs, who invited her United-supporting father to join the party.

"You can't stay in your front room when you win the Premier League", one of those associated with City said as he exited the venue to no doubt continue the celebrations elsewhere.

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him.

'He has been able to transfer to the team that hunger and desire to never be satisfied.

He added: "It just shows how football is lived in Manchester".

"It's been a fucking long journey... especially if you've been a blue for more than forty years in your heart!"
