Pep Guardiola reveals key match in Premier League title win

16 April, 2018, 21:28 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

City's current tally stands at 14 but with two more away matches to go, City could well set a new record.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany and teammates John Stones, Bernardo Silva, Fabian Delph and Kyle Walker celebrated their Premier League title win on Sunday with fans at Hale Wine Bar in Manchester.

In fact, it was their neighbors Manchester United who were handing heavy defeats with their 4-0 demolitions.

But he has proved that City is by far the best team in the League and are deserving champions.

A second-half injury time madness, which lasted almost 10 minutes, saw City clinch the victory after Sterling scored the victor in the 97th minute. "Last season we finished sixth and this season we are going to finish, hopefully, second".

Guardiola might not have seen Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute winning goal at Old Trafford because he was playing golf with his son instead of watching the match.

Kompany and several of his teammates later toasted their title triumph with fans.

"I'm not going to stand here and say we didn't deserve what happened", he added.

Goalkeeper Ederson Moraes was watching former club Benfica play Porto in the Portuguese league.

He also said the next aim will be to push on to make this Man City team one of the giants of the game. But United's loss to bottom-placed West Brom probably caught out the club and the players.


Russian Federation bans use of messaging app Telegram
The media regulator sought to block the app because the firm had refused to hand over encryption keys used to scramble messages. The messaging service offers end-to-end encryption , meaning that Telegram itself has no access to the content of messages.


City tied the record for earliest date of sealing the Premier League title, sharing the mark with the 2001 United squad.

"The difference is that we were consistent the whole season and played at the level we are expected to perform at", Kompany said. "Very happy to call us champions this year".

18 - the record top-flight winning run achieved by City between August 26 against Bournemouth and December 27 at Newcastle.

Mourinho was also hugely critical of his players for their approach to the game, accusing them of too many flicks and tricks to allow West Brom to win by a single goal.

"Three damaging losses in a row" painted a concerning picture for a team that have been otherwise been colossal in their dominance all season, but in hindsight, and especially in light of this win at Wembley, it might have been a misrepresentation.

Speaking after the win over Tottenham, Guardiola admitted winning the title in England would be one of the greatest achievements of his glittering career.

I don't know if I was the first or if I was the second or the third, but I congratulated them face-to-face when I had the chance to do it.

So, where does this City side stand in terms of the Premier League's best ever teams?

City's next target is to overhaul the record 95 points Chelsea accrued in Jose Mourinho's first season at the helm. Probably because I won eight championships, I was not on the moon with the victory against them.
