Guardiola: PL 'more important' to win than Champions League

Premier League Jose Mourinho Slams Manchester United As They Hand Title To Manchester City

LONDON - Pep Guardiola said wining the Premier League will be one of his greatest achievements as Manchester City moved to within three points of the title.

City won 3-1 against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday to move to the brink of glory, but United's shock home loss to the league's bottom side wrapped up the trophy they have seemed destined to lift since the start of an all-conquering campaign. That's why winning in this way, hopefully next Sunday it will remain in our hearts for the rest of our life.

"And, fingers crossed, he will go to Russian Federation injury free and still in good form, and as a Premier League victor to boot".

Sir Alex watched on from the stands as United handed their fiercest rivals the title on a plate, and the club's most decorated manager was the first man to win the Premier League on a golf course.

"People are asking whether we are the best Premier League side in history, but the answer is no, because we have a lot of work to still do".

City raced into a two-goal lead with first half goals from Gabriel Jesus and an Ilkay Gundogan penalty.

"He missed two clear, clear chances against United". Wins over West Ham and Southampton would give them 50, and have Pep's men holding yet another record. What's happened in the last week is so unfair.

'We have to try, ' said Guardiola. "Today, we've done it many, many times and that's why we're in the position we are. The performance was so good".

Jose Mourinho criticised his United players following the result, saying: "I won eight titles and I'm not on the moon because I won against Manchester City, a match that is just three points".

5 - City match the English top-flight record by claiming the title with five games to spare, equalling the efforts of United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

Guardiola headed for the greens with his son Marius and pro golfer Tommy Fleetwood, telling reporters at Wembley: "Tomorrow, I have golf with my son and friends... bogey, double bogey, birdie". We will see. Football is unpredictable but normally United will beat West Brom.

Kompany, at home in Manchester, revealed many of his team-mates had flown off for mini-breaks to see family and friends after being given three days off. "It's incredible, the guys are incredible".
