Man City eye record books after clinching title

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City- Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City- Premier League

Few expected Manchester United to gift City the title on Sunday as they took on bottom of the league side West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford, and City boss Pep Guardiola admitted during the week he would be playing 18 holes of golf during the Sunday game.

Guardiola failed to pick up a trophy in his first year at the Etihad Stadium but has now won the league and EFL Cup - secured with victory over Arsenal at Wembley in February - this season.

LONDON: Champions Manchester City have set their sights on rewriting the record books after clinching the Premier League title.

"I've never been able to retain a title, I want to see if this team has got it to carry on and be more successful".

"It is the same feeling as the first time, you can´t describe it", Kompany said. "I'm proud of everyone involved".

Word quickly got around through social media and City fans queued outside a venue still advertising United's televised clash with the Baggies in a bid to join fellow supporters inside, where the players were seen belting out Oasis' Wonderwall and being serenaded by supporters expressing their delight and gratitude.

"It differs (to previous titles) in the fact we were consistent the whole season. One team was dominant in Germany and one had (Lionel) Messi, but we are nothing without the team".

Vincent Kompany celebrated Manchester City's Premier League title triumph with a Manchester United fan and then challenged the champions to win it again next season.

"When I was 20 I would have been a flawless player for him".

"One thing he [Guardiola] has been able to transfer is that hunger and desire to never be satisfied", said Kompany. It's not a dynasty, it's one title.

"Everyone that plays under him will have had success because of him, because he has the ability to unlock the full potential".

"The conditions were different to what he had at other clubs, but his methods were right and were what we believed in".

'Especially if you've been a Blue for more than forty years.

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning". You realise something can happen and it was a wonderful goal by Rodriguez so thank you!

"He's a better loser than a victor, I have got to be honest!"
