Now let's win it again: Kompany sets City new title target

Vincent Kompany hailed Manchester City's third Premier League triumph as their proudest after watching rivals Manchester United hand them the title with a limp capitulation at home to West Bromwich Albion.

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.

Manchester City celebrated the title with posting this image on its official social media platforms with the caption "Our Time".

Guardiola's outfit have been utterly dominant this season, holding a 16-point lead over second-placed United, and have equalled the record of winning the title with five league games remaining.

"It is one of the first things I noticed within the first month", he said. I kind of want to see how the reaction will be because I've never retained a title.

As for Spurs, boss Mauricio Pochettino has made a total of four alterations to his team, with the most notable switch seeing Erik Lamela replace Son Heung-min.

"I may be the first one thinking about next season".

"Any player under him has had success because of him and how they've improved as individuals".

Russia says has 'proof' UK was behind alleged Syria chemical attack
French President Emmanuel Macron also said he had "proof" that the Syrian government had attacked Douma with chemical weapons. The one-off missile strike in April 2017 targeted the airfield from which the Syrian aircraft had launched their gas attack.

"It is the same feeling as the first time, you can´t describe it", Kompany said.

The City captain was urged to make a speech by his supporters and the Belgian obliged his adoring fans.

"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.

"It's brilliant and we're super happy but there is still so much work to be done before the full potential is unlocked for the whole team". Firstly for him, coming to this league for the first time, and then we had to take on all this information he was giving to us.

"As (West Brom) got stuck into the game you got the feeling "something could happen here", and a set-piece, a wonderful goal from Rodriguez - thank you! - it's a great feeling".

'It shows how football is in Manchester.

"Today was a day for the Blues - there have been many days for the Reds before, and ultimately it's banter".
