Pep Guardiola lauds Manchester City after sealing Premier League title

Shannon Reynolds | 16 April, 2018, 21:25

Sergio Aguero claims it is a relief Manchester City have secured the Premier League title without any final-game drama this season. After 33 rounds of matches, Pep Guardiola-coached Man City have 87 points, while Man United have 71 points.

Their match at Everton saw them retain 82.13% possession, the highest recorded in the Premier League, and they broke passing records, completing over 900 against Chelsea. The Premier League title was confirmed. Said Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to the media after the match.

But he has proved that City is by far the best team in the League and are deserving champions. We've got red and blues in the family.

Mourinho is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: "We are not going to spend more than we can".

City have already equalled the record for winning the Premier League, with five games remaining.

It was always a matter of when rather than if City would be champions after they led the way for most of the season. City now lead United by 16 points and by the end of the season they could very well re-write the record books. "We conceded goals but the most important detail is not the goal you concede but the chances you concede and in every game it was few and [while] playing so offensively". I've been lucky to win three but so many I've missed as well.

How to City compare with other great sides?

Silva has been a key figure for City for much of the season, putting in some inspirational performances that have seen him nominated for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award. Mark Doyle writes: "Indeed, they may not be the best side in Premier League history, but they are arguably the most attractive".

Just two additional players have captained longer premierleague title winners - Chelsea'therefore John Terry (five titles) along with Manchester United's previous priest Roy Keane (four).

The City squad headed to Manchester's Railway pub, where they held an impromptu party and bought drinks for their fellow customers.

Shaw writes: "Everyone has their own definition of what constitutes the "best" Premier League team in history but winning with style is only half the battle".

And they can thank fierce rival Manchester United for that.

City manager Pep Guardiola said that his side's 1-0 win over last season's champions Chelsea back in September gave the club the belief that they could go on to win the league with the former Barcelona manager praising his team for their blend of youth and stability.

"Liverpool beat us in two games and congratulations to them".

Guardiola failed to win a trophy during his first season in English football but has now added the Premier League to the EFL Cup crown collected against Arsenal in February. While they did it at a time when the game was still in its infancy, their record around that period was astounding. "Last season we finished sixth and this season we are going to finish, hopefully, second".

"Now, the trick is making sure we kick on again next season and come back even stronger".
