Man City eye record books after clinching title

Paul Pogba

It is the fifth time City have been English champions and the third time in the last seven seasons.

Their dominance of the title race has been so emphatic and convincing that every one of their so-called rivals has been beaten by City at least once, and none of them has been able to prevent Pep Guardiola's team from winning the title with a month to spare.

This defeat felt particularly painful as it came the weekend after the dramatic win against Manchester City, where United won 3-2 after being two goals down.

Even Tinder got in on the act, tweeting: "Looks like we swiped right on a victor".

"They won the title because they were the best team".

This result will not have any significant effect on the league table beyond placing the title in City's hands. "Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues", he said.

That consistency, which saw them go on a remarkable 30-match unbeaten run that wasn't ended until January this year, has been the deciding factor and the most crucial aspect in them securing the title this season.

Mourinho's position as the United manager is further weakened by the fact that Liverpool are emerging as a force to be reckoned with.

The Northern Irish global has been one of the most in-demand defenders in the Premier League this season, having been linked with the likes of Arsenal, Leicester City as well as Manchester City.

Wherever you look, City have broken records or stand on the verge of creating another.

The irony that this is exactly how Manchester City play will not be lost on anyone.

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in ideal style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate. Although Nicolas Otamendi has been an ever-present figure in the City backline this season, the arrival of a new centre-back is imperative for the runaway champions of the Premier League.

City's title is the 24th trophy of his glittering career.

Guardiola, speaking after Saturday's 3-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley, declared his own satisfaction at the superb efforts of his squad this term.

However, the celebrations had not even started when Kompany was already thinking about the next season.

Spurs showed flashes, and they might be the closest challengers next season, but they could not sustain it, while United's Jekyll-and-Hyde season was summed up by their defeat against West Brom.

Jay Rodriguez's solitary second half goal gave the relegation strugglers an unexpected win, and in the process handed Manchester City the Premier League title.
