Manchester City Crowned English Premier League Football Champions

His decision to forego the match looked justified considering West Brom's terrible form, but the visitors easily coped with United's ponderous attacks and looked unsafe going forward.

Not only that but he did it with five games remaining, equalling the English top-flight record of United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany gave a passionate speech in a Manchester pub last night after his team were confirmed as Premier League victors. City defender Benjamin Mendy, who missed most of the season due to injury, turned social media blue as he tweeted: "We are f*****g champions congratulations boys!"

His first season at City ended with the club finishing 15 points behind champions Chelsea and with a number of question marks over his team. "It needs to be a number of years before we can be regarded as one of the top teams ever to have played in the league".

City could yet finish the season with the most points, goals and wins from a single Premier League campaign.

"I've seen many teams win it where they've been champions all season and it's a first for me".

Matrix Capital Management Company LP Has Upped Incyte Corp (INCY) Stake
Raymond James downgraded the stock to "Underperform" rating in Tuesday, October 4 report. (NYSE:V) rating on Thursday, February 1. This company shares are 101.93% off its target price of $141.59 and the current market capitalization stands at $19.27B.

Three wins from those remaining five games would give City the most Premier League points in a single season and also the most victories of any title victor.

Fortunately for City, they now have a coach as relentlessly dedicated to winning as Ferguson was.

The Premier League's record points tally of 95, set by Chelsea in 2004-05, is within City's reach if it can take nine from its last fixtures.

"Retaining a title is the next step and City were not in the right state of mind", said United's former boss Alex Ferguson after retiring in 2013, having won the title back from City. You need consistency at every level. The Premier League club has converted the best investment into best results with their third league title.

Mendy's unfortunate injury has deprived City of a potent threat for much of this season, after the Frenchman had settled in very quickly.

Guardiola believes the 23-year-old's talent is among the best in the world but has told him to work harder at converting chances, even though he has bagged 22 times this season.
