Manchester City crowned PL winners

Cape Town - Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday after neighbours Manchester United lost 1-0 to West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford.

That stat rivals that of Manchester United, who also won the League a few years back with five games to spare, with defending League champions Chelsea winning in 2016/17 with three games to play.

"If there's kids in the room, cover their ears", Kompany told supporters at the venue.

"It's been a f***ing long journey". But in the seven years that have followed, City have won the EPL twice - no more a Blue Moon, you will agree.

But finally, it is kudos to Man City manager Guardiola who has now won League titles in Spain with Barcelona, Germany with Bayern Munich and now in England.

Joe Fagan inherited a team that had won back-to-back championships and he delivered three more trophies to the Anfield trophy cabinet as the Reds won a fourth successive League Cup, a third consecutive title and a fourth European Cup, this one courtesy of a penalty shoot-out victory over Roma in the final.

"Everything was complicated. We couldn't play fast, we couldn't think fast, everything was complicated".

"But in general we were so stable".

"Okay, Sergio [Aguero] is a genius, a top player but about 30-years-old".

"They are going to be tough to knock off their perch because they are going to improve again in the summer, spending on one or two big hitters to try to win the Champions League". However, there are certain games every season that separate the champions-elect and put them above and ahead of the chasing pack.

BBC Match of the Day pundits describe City's performances as "sensational", and with 15 points still left to play for City's title-winning season, it could get even better. Since reaching the 178-goal mark, Aguero has added to his personal tally, and now sits one goal away from the 200-goal mark at 199.

"At my age, you can still learn and we share one thing: that hunger and desire never to be satisfied".

"That is important to build up the club".

Etisalat - the UAE's leading telecommunications operator - posted an official title winning video shortly after United's loss.

"We deserve top be punished, but the defeat was too heavy". Of course next season it's not going to happen the same, it's impossible.

"But that is the target". I'm buzzing, over the moon, so happy and proud to be able to share this with all of our fans, everybody who's been there to support us especially in this last week as many know it's been very hard but at the same time we've bounced back, we're champions now and thank you to all of you, It's an incredible season.
