Pep Guardiola reveals key match in Premier League title win

Pep Guardiola reveals key match in Premier League title win

Manchester City won their fifth Premier League title on Sunday as West Bromwich Albion (WBA) beat their nearest rivals Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford.

Certainly, Liverpool's heroics in both the Champions League and Premier League, swarming all over City for three victories this term, and Manchester United's 3-2 comeback win at the Etihad which delayed the coronation, dented the aura.

Kompany, whose return to regular fitness has been a key factor in City's success this season, said there could be no talk of domination after they won a first league title since 2014.

"This season has been incredible and the football we've played has been the best I've been involved with while at the Club".

"This one differs in that we were consistent the whole season and we were able to play at the level we're expected to perform at".

Raheem Sterling will be one of the best players in the world if he can become a better finisher, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes. Guardiola said in March that Mateo was "doing well" and, following confirmation of City's title triumph, Silva thanked fans on social media for their support during a "tough year", attaching a photo of himself holding his son. People always talk about possession, but when he talks about defending, he will tell you to stay in your position and not lose the ball.

Speaking after the attack, that left bite marks to the bone on his leg, Mr Longgrass said he slapped the water in a bid to scare it off.

With five games remaining, Pep Guardiola's City now have an unassailable 16-point lead at the top of the table.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has challenged his teammates to improve again next season as they look to retain the Premier League title.

On the blue side of Manchester the reaction was one of delight after a hard fortnight in which they lost to United and were dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool. Between now and the end of the season, you'd expect that total, along with Chelsea's record of 103 in 2010, is well within Guardiola's sights.

Adam Bate, Sky Sports: "Manchester City's collective effort has put them miles ahead of the rest and secured the title with five games to spare". Technically, the team went 30 matches undefeated in league play, but the 28-match mark is still commendable. Of course, there had been some pretty good displays throughout their preseason tour of the U.S., but nothing had indicated the level at which the team would break records in the months that would follow.

Of course, the City players themselves were ecstatic, including full back Kyle Walker, who joined from Spurs last summer.
