Manchester City Clinches Premier League Title

Manchester City Clinches Premier League Title

Pep Guardiola's side put themselves on the brink of title glory with Saturday's 3-1 victory at Tottenham and Manchester United's failure to take points off West Brom on Sunday left City beyond mathematical reach.

Whether they deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Manchester United's 1999 treble winners or the 2004 Arsenal "Invincibles" is up for debate.

City captain Vincent Kompany said: "It's the same feeling as the first time and you can't describe it".

Manchester United's record of winning the league with a point difference of 18 points.

West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won on January 13. The people can believe Manchester City is a good team and a good club.

Five wins from five would give them 103 points - eclipsing Chelsea's record of 95 back in the 2004/05 season.

Fuelled by the majestic form of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, City set a new Premier League record earlier this season by winning 18 successive matches.

Defeat for Spurs handed Chelsea a glimmer of hope in the fight for Champions League places after it came from 2-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2, but Liverpool strengthened its position in the top four as Mohamed Salah scored his 40th goal of the season in a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth. They were unbeaten in the Premier League until January 14, when Liverpool ended that wonderful run at Anfield.

"It shows how football is in Manchester".

"I'm probably the first one to think about next season. We conceded goals but the most important detail is not the goal you concede but the chances you concede and in every game it was few and [while] playing so offensively". "The last week was tough for us", Guardiola said.

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him.

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Guardiola was all smiles when he was pictured arriving home after his golf outing.

The 47-year-old has previously won league titles in Spain and Germany, as well as two Champions Leagues with Barca.

While this piece isn't an attempt to undermine the quality of players who were at the club before the club saw an upturn in their fortunes, we take a look at the top-performing team members of the Man City squad in 2007-08 season, before the arrival of the ADUG to illustrate the impact of the oil-money in improving the squad.

"These guys are fantastic, awesome - they are incredible".
