Manchester City wins title with Manchester United loss

Manchester City wins title with Manchester United loss Manchester City wins title with Manchester United loss

Whilst Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal have all managed to provide us with some excellent laughs, and been figures to take the piss out of, Manchester City have been brilliantly boring or boringly brilliant. After 33 rounds of matches, Pep Guardiola-coached Man City have 87 points, while Man United have 71 points.

He would have been as surprised as everyone else that the title, seemingly a foregone conclusion for months, was rubber-stamped in such unusual circumstances.

City were crowned champions after Manchester United lost 1-0 to West Brom and Kompany was soon in the pub celebrating with some of his team-mates, including Kyle Walker and John Stones.

The result leaves City 16 points clear at the top of the table, with just five games left to play.

Kompany also thanked West Brom players for delivering the title earlier than expected.

He said: "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".

Acquiring a hard-working but relatively average squad which finished 9th in the league in 2007-08 season, the ADUG immediately sanctioned big money purchases for the team, and have continued to invest heavily in the transfer market ever since.

But on Sunday afternoon, as it clinched the Premier League title, the club did none of those things.

Should City gain another three points on the side that finishes second, it would make this the biggest title-winning margin of the modern Premier League era.

Tottenham's record of 31 wins in a top-flight season. Of course next season it's not going to happen the same, it's impossible.

"They lost only two matches [this season] because they were the best team", Mourinho said. "We have spent a lot of money to have these wonderful players, to make that possible".

After a mixed first season in England, Guardiola faced questions about whether his methods were a good fit for the Premier League. The situation meant the club's retail team would have been confident in manufacturing and preparing league champions-branded clothing and memorabilia before the title was confirmed.

Man City have won the Premier League with five games to go, a joint-record.

It's very important to have these types of players to win titles.

City's dominance seemed daunting throughout much of the campaign, and the team set a few records along the way to cement their work in league history.
