Manchester United Show Their Class By Doing THIS After City's Title Win

Manchester City won the English Premier League title on Sunday after rivals Manchester United stumbled to defeat against relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion. 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. "It's not a dynasty, it's one title - we're super happy but there's so much work to be done".

United had to at least draw to keep the title race mathematically alive but they were stunned at Old Trafford when Jay Rodriguez headed home after the break.

"Playing in the Champions League at that age, sometimes it is complicated".

Salah has already scored 40 goals this year and is in line to win Footballer of the Year.

15 - clean sheets, ranking second in the league behind United (16).

Guardiola conquered England in only his second season at Eastlands, with his team having lost just twice in 33 matches and went unbeaten in the top flight until January 14 when Liverpool ended that incredible run at Anfield.

"They wilted at Anfield in the Champions League and collapsed at their own title party a few days later, caught in a whirlwind as Manchester United swarmed all over them, back from the dead when all hope had looked lost". They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points. "The Premier League is the constant - every day, every day, every day - and we were there every day".

City have won 28 of their 33 games, including victories away to Chelsea, United and now Tottenham as well as thrashing Liverpool and Spurs at home.

Right-back Kyle Walker, who joined Man City last summer, said: "We did it!"

"It just shows how football is lived in Manchester - we've got Reds in the family we've got Blues in the family", he said.

But he said Guardiola's hunger and desire to get better had rubbed off on all the players, including himself. I was unfortunate enough to play against that quality United side that dominated in the '90s, but this side would have beaten them - that's how good they are.

"The first time you win it, you think you'll win all of them", said Kompany.

Guardiola, who becomes the first Spanish manager to win the Premier League, has now won a remarkable 24 trophies in his nine-year management career. "Winning at Stamford Bridge gave us a feeling of, 'OK, against the last champions, we are able to come here and play'".
