Manchester City clinches 2017-18 Premier League title

17 April, 2018, 10:37 | Author: Candice Daniels

"Manchester City, we won it for you" chanted West Brom fans at full-time as United supporters began jeering in frustration at their side gift-wrapping the title for City. Combining speed, guile, power and more speed, it has blown away opponents and redefined what anyone thought was possible in the English game.

Manchester City now has five Premier League titles.

"You go through all of City's team and he has improved every player".

'The first time you win it, you think you'll win all of them, ' Kompany told Sky Sports. The Champions League It's been almost seven years since Guardiola last won European football's greatest prize, too long a wait for a coach supposedly at the top of his profession. "I'm just happy to bring that to pass and hopefully I can carry on".

Kevin De Bruyne believes Manchester City's ambition must be to win the Champions League.

He'll be frustrated [by this season's European campaign] because obviously he likes to play great football and the great managers always want more.

I'm glad he's stuck with his principles, that he came through and his style of football which he has not only proved you can win with it, but it's so lovely to watch at times. Plus, City need three more wins to better Chelsea's record of 30 Premier League wins in a season.

He is the first Spanish manager to win the Premier League title - a prize he says is the hardest to claim in Europe.

'We all believed in it, otherwise it wouldn't happen, ' Kompany said.

"I don't care, I just want to win the title", he said. But expect one thing: statistics like scoring almost three goals per game, having almost 90 percent passing accuracy and averaging 72.7 percent possession are likely to continue. The Citizens have been widely praised, with many calling them the best team in Europe this season. The levels that Pep Guardiola has taken City to this season, I can't see any of the other sides competing with them in the next five years if they continue playing at this level.

City beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 on Saturday and have won 28 of their 33 matches.

The club captain, a solid figure in centre of the team's defence, and also the official Club "Player of the Year" for four consecutive seasons, Dunne was a central figure in the pre-ADUG Man City team.

De Bruyne said he had enjoyed his team's league campaign as a whole, a season during which they have scored 93 goals and lost just twice. "This club is absolutely incredible in all terms".
