Kompany eyes more glory as City net title

Here are some of the most impressive stats from their title win.

And when the great champions are chronicled, the Everton of the mid-Eighties should not the overlooked. "So happy to be able to share another trophy with our fantastic fans!"

Sergio Aguero claims it is a relief Manchester City have secured the Premier League title without any final-game drama this season.

Here's what pundits, managers and players have said after City won the league... Manchester United seemed to have the monopoly on it at one point, with Blackburn Rovers the only blip, until Arsenal turned up to create the best rivalry of the generation, then Chelsea won it, next Manchester City joined the party and finally Leicester shocked everyone with their win.

Pep Guardiola, meanwhile, was playing golf with Tommy Fleetwood. "I've been lucky to win three but I've missed some as well", the experienced defender told Sky Sports.

"The club made an investment on players and that is the difference", Guardiola said over the weekend. It was City's fifth English league title and third Premier League crown in last six years.

Manchester City's Vincent Kompany has already set his sights on retaining their champion status next season.

The Premier League points and goals records are also likely to be smashed but the true test of whether City deserve their status in the list of all-time greats will be what comes next.

We look at how the United Kingdom football writers rate Guardiola's current crop of stars.

Don't forget, although they won the EFL Cup, the demands of competing on several fronts took its toll on City this season, losing to Wigan in the FA Cup and being dispatched from Europe in emphatic fashion by a domestic rival. It is possible to win the league that way.

But that era of success for Ferguson came at a time when English clubs were strong in Europe and United added a Champions League title to their domestic success in 2008.

Guardiola has now won seven league titles in nine seasons as a senior coach in three countries after conquering La Liga and the Bundesliga with Barcelona and Bayern Munich on multiple occasions.

No doubt Guardiola will have a few new tricks for next season to keep his players - and his opponents - on their toes.

The 3-0 loss at Anfield was Manchester City's most damaging defeat of the season. They gave a superb response with a swaggering win at fourth placed Tottenham.
