Manchester is Blue! - City players react to Premier League title triumph

Manchester is Blue! - City players react to Premier League title triumph

Despite the win, West Brom remained in the 20th spot of the EPL table with 24 points.

"It's one of the best by far".

"Yeah, a good week".

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

"Alexis has been involved in four of the last five goals - how pleased are you with his form?"

"In general open play we had a couple of chances", he said. "Today I was very pleased the players showed that".

"I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said.

"We still need to improve to reach the last level which is the most hard thing". But when we do something positive, then also tell the truth. That's Liverpooling more than Liverpool have ever Liverpooled this season. "Our City." West Brom went with a simple "You're welcome".

But City manager Pep Guardiola might have missed one of the proudest moments of his career, after admitting on Sunday that he had a round of golf booked with his son and was not planning to watch United's game.

Additionally the trio said the vote to send Chiloba packing was done while some of the commissioners were out of the country. By law, the commission must have four active members to carry out business.

And while they probably thought they would have to wait one more week, that's not the case. During the week I was trying to fight that because I was feeling it'.

Do you remember a week like this in football, with so many insane results? Winning titles in every league is important, with Barcelona was special. If not for wasting opportunities, six or seven goals wasn't out of the question. "They lost only two matches, that is why they were champions". Big teams, small teams - what is that in football?

West Brom's goal came after a rapid counter attack. You have to be careful calling out players. Does that make it tricky?

"It's more hard (to win in England). One of the things we have to improve is our consistency". "Last season we finished sixth and this season we are going to finish, hopefully, second".

Manchester City are now 16 points ahead of 2nd placed side Manchester United - the Premier League record points gap between 1st and 2nd place at the end of a season is now 18 points by Manchester United in 1999-00.

"We struggled to start in the game".

"The only score I want to know is bogey or birdie", Guardiola said on Saturday, when asked if he would be watching United's game against West Brom.

"I think we were deservedly punished".
