Manchester City clinch Premier League title

Manchester City champions: Five key players that helped them win the title Man City crowned champions after United defeat

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.

In City's mega-rich era, managers and players have come and gone but one constant has largely remained - Sergio Aguero's goalscoring.

"It is the same feeling as the first time, you can't describe it", Kompany said.

Jay Rodriguez netted the lone score for West Brom.

In his eight seasons with City, Silva has only once been named the Premier League's player of the month, and only once made the team of the year.

"When I was talking before the game and I was saying: 'Actually, you know the first time when you win it, you think you're gonna win all of them and the first time you lose it you think you're never gonna win it again'".

Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? It's incredible, it's such a hard achievement.

"But you go into the game and you think: 'Well, West Brom are a good team".

Their squad is crammed full of wonderfully potent performers such as Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, yet the Premier League table, which shows them 16 points behind City, does not lie.

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning", he said.

'We all believed in it, otherwise it wouldn't happen, ' Kompany said.

"But it feels just as good because you can't take it for granted".

Silva has been a key figure for City for much of the season, putting in some inspirational performances that have seen him nominated for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award.

But Jose Mourinho's men still ended up handing the trophy to City with a lacklustre display against bottom of the table Albion, who had won only three times in the league this season before this weekend.

But they were back to their irresistible best against Spurs as Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan put them 2-0 up early on, with Sterling sealing the win after Christian Eriksen had given the hosts hope.

"We've won the league for you, Man City, Man City", West Brom's fans chanted after the final whistle.

City's club captain, who celebrated the win live on camera, spoke to Sky Sports in the aftermath of City being crowned champions. My teammates will roll their eyes as I want to see the reaction from us next season as I've never been able to retain a title. I'm sure they are differences to how we play today compared to Bayern and Barcelona, we survive and live by the strength of the team.
