Records tumble as Manchester City crowned Premier League Champions

For instance, if Manchester City win their last five games, they'll break Chelsea's record points total of 95 from the 2004-05 season.

While it is City's third title in seven seasons, it's the rousing speech given by Kompany in his local pub which captured fans' imaginations. He and Mourinho are old rivals from their time in Spain when the United boss managed Real Madrid. "I have won titles".

Given the way it has demolished all challengers in the league, it was apparent months ago that it was only a matter of when rather than if City would take the title. "We want to win even more games and not slip up in the type of the matches where we might have slipped up this season". We deserve to be punished.

City supporters have been spoiled every three or four days by the pretty passing patterns woven of Guardiola's team and they might have just one year left of it.

Manchester City have ended their roughest spell of the season by winning the Premier League with five games to spare.

Despite Cook's statement, Dunne went to captain the City side in the 2008-09 season and featured regularly.


"It would be one of the best three seasons I have ever had as a player and as a manager".

Fast-forward to Sunday April 15, 2018 and Guardiola's City side has achieved a domestic double, adding the Premier League to the League Cup they won in February. 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. He also conceded it was sweet to triumph in a country where some critics claimed his purist principles couldn't flourish.

He dislikes media conferences as it is, but being continually asked about his City future - which will no doubt be the case until he makes his mind up - will hardly make them more appealing. They gave a superb response with a swaggering win at fourth placed Tottenham.

Although team-mate Kevin De Bruyne and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah are thought to be the frontrunners, Silva's nomination and form are made all the more remarkable given the hard time he has had in his family life.

"I want to see the reaction from us next season as I've never been able to retain a title", said club captain Vincent Kompany, a three-time Premier League victor.

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