City could clinch their third league title in seven seasons if they beat Tottenham on Saturday and United lose against West Bromwich Albion but Guardiola does not expect Jose Mourinho's side to lose momentum in the final stretch.

Whether they deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Manchester United's 1999 treble winners or the 2004 Arsenal "Invincibles" is up for debate.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany on Sky Sports: We were consistent the whole season and were able to play at the level we were expected to perform at.

"The amount of goals, chances and points, to do that in the Premier League, with the contenders we have, is because the players are so good". But tonight, we win it again.

Soon after the ADUG takeover, club's chief executive Garry Cook was quoted saying "China and India are gagging for football content to watch and we're going to tell them that City is their content". They are able to win their games - all six.

Guardiola conquered England in only his second season at the Etihad after his team have lost just twice in 33 matches.

Henceforth, City would eye surpassing Chelsea's record 95 points accumulated in a single season.

Apparently a ginger kid can get the entirety of Manchester (which, by the way, doesn't seem to have any United fans anywhere at all) to start singing quite literally the WORST footballing chant the world has ever seen.

'Especially if you've been a Blue for more than forty years. "It's a privilege to be a part of this team".

"You can not imagine", Guardiola said on Saturday.

"It is one of the first things I noticed within the first month", he said. There was a period of adaptation for him coming into the league and for us taking in his methods.

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Guardiola was all smiles when he was pictured arriving home after his golf outing.

It probably wasn't the ideal way to seal glory, but City won't care too much.

Speaking after Saturday's 3-1 win over Tottenham, the 47-year-old gave all the credit to his players.

While this piece isn't an attempt to undermine the quality of players who were at the club before the club saw an upturn in their fortunes, we take a look at the top-performing team members of the Man City squad in 2007-08 season, before the arrival of the ADUG to illustrate the impact of the oil-money in improving the squad.

"This club is absolutely awesome in all terms".
