Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola celebrates his side's win on Sunday

Pep Guardiola's side were crowned kings of English football on Sunday as their arch rivals Manchester United slumped to a shock 1-0 defeat against struggling West Bromwich Albion.

Pep Guardiola says Manchester City knew they could win the Premier League title after beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

"This season has been incredible and the football we've played has been the best I've been involved with while at the Club". However, Silva has described this latest title win as the "most special" of his career as he had to contend with the premature birth of his son.

Guardiola's side also set a new record for most consecutive victories with 18 wins in a row earlier in the season and the City boss said the players showed their quality to claim the title.

Their dominance of the league, with 28 wins and just two defeats bear that out, but the circumstances in which they have been handed the title were surprising.

"So, make sure you visit us online or in-store at the CityStore Etihad Stadium or [Manchester] Arndale [Centre] to discover the latest fan must-haves".

Meanwhile Mourinho was left counting the cost of an insipid display by his team. Now the 26-year-old Belgian is the best midfielder in the Premier League.

No one has been close to taking the Premier League title off Manchester City all season, which is why they won it in mid April, but less than 24 hours later even the City fans think they should be stripped of their crown.

Manchester City will lift the Premier League trophy after their game against Huddersfield on May 6, live on Sky Sports Premier League. "Our City. Premier League Champions 17/18". Wherever you look, City have broken records or stand on the verge of creating another. There's still plenty for City to play for during that time, too: three more wins would match Chelsea's 95-point record; five wins would see City become the first club to reach the 100-point tally; 11 more goals would see the team break the 103-goal league record.

"The difference is that we were consistent the whole season and played at the level we are expected to perform at", Kompany said. Of course it's not going to happen next season the same - it's impossible.

Phil McNulty, BBC: "Guardiola, as we have seen, has reshaped Manchester City and has them playing in his own image and likeness".
