Kompany already thinking of Man City title defence

They clinched the silverware 24 hours later thanks to West Brom forward Jay Rodriguez's 73rd minute header at Old Trafford although Guardiola may have missed the crucial moment after opting for a round of golf with his son instead.

It's been nailed on for months now that Manchester City were destined to become Premier League winners for the third time since 2012.

"They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points".

"We've won the league for you, Man City, Man City", West Brom's fans chanted after the final whistle.

Ederson has also made some crucial saves, such as the last-gasp penalty stop at Crystal Palace in December, as well making a significant improvement in the save percentage department - contributions that can make all the difference in a title race.

Kompany, like most others, was caught on the hop by West Bromwich Albion's shock victory at Manchester United, a result that meant City were confirmed as champions with a record-equalling five games remaining.

City have won the league twice before in the Premier League era but failed on each occasion to retain the trophy, something captain Kompany hopes this squad can put right next year.

Under Roberto Mancini in 2012 they clinched it with a last-gasp Sergio Aguero victor at Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the season while in 2014 under Manuel Pellegrini it also went down to the wire. Last season's champions, Chelsea, look unlikely to be in the top four this year.

"For all Manchester City supporters, at home and globally, it is time to celebrate, acknowledge our friendship and enjoy our passion together".

"This is not a dynasty, it is one title we've won".

He also conceded it was sweet to triumph in a country where some critics claimed his purist principles couldn't flourish. With United eight points adrift of the leaders before kick-off, City dominated from start to finish to leave their bitter rivals trailing in their wake.

"Any player who has played under him has had success because of him and because of the way he has improved them as individuals and enabled them to unlock their full potential".

Absolutely superb. Those celebrations are sure to continue long into the night, and given how Man City have performed in the league across this season, they should enjoy every second of it.

They gave a superb response with a swaggering win at fourth placed Tottenham. If Silva is the magician, De Bruyne is the relentless force - bringing a directness to City's attacking play. 'It is important to believe because Manchester City is not like United or Chelsea or Arsenal, the big clubs in England who have a big history behind them.

While it may be premature to place City in that rarified air, they could make a case by breaking the Premier League points record of 95 set by Chelsea in 2004-05.
