Five decisive moments in City's Premier League triumph

Combining speed, guile, power and more speed, it has blown away opponents and redefined what anyone thought was possible in the English game.

Guardiola was in charge at Barca for four years and spent three years at Bayern Munich before his move to the Premier League, and has now won league titles in Spain, Germany and England as a manager.

City, who rebounded from the United loss and a European exit at the hands of Liverpool by beating Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, have 87 points with five games left. "It is the same feeling as the first time, you can't describe it", Kompany said.

"They are going to be tough to knock off their perch because they are going to improve again in the summer, spending on one or two big hitters to try to win the Champions League". It is one title. City's other two Premier League triumphs, in 2012 and '14, were sealed on the final day.

"It's no coincidence the type of players brought in over the past year or two have all been of a similar age and we'll look to build as a group together". Previous times, we almost threw it away and that was a feature of every season we won it.

"This season has been incredible and the football we've played has been the best I've been involved with while at the club", added the 29-year-old. Not footballers who are really young, but players like Kyle Walker, Fernandinho and even Kevin de Bruyne.

'Everyone knows he's one of the best coaches in the world, ' said the Belgium midfielder.

After delivering his first trophy - the Carabao Cup in February - Guardiola has now won his first major silverware with the Premier League secured on Sunday with five games still remaining. That step is always a difficult one but we have worked hard all season and we are delighted to achieve it. There was a period of adaptation for him coming into the league and for us taking in his methods.

The Premier League points and goals records are also likely to be smashed but the true test of whether City deserve their status in the list of all-time greats will be what comes next. "City were the best team, sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league", Mourinho said.

But they're heading in the right direction, they're playing football the like of which we've possibly never seen before, and they're winning.

West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won on January 13.

It's too early to assess the magnitude of the achievement of this Manchester City side.
