Guardiola: I knew Man City would win the title in September

Guardiola: I knew Man City would win the title in September

Kevin De Bruyne believes Manchester City's ambition must be to win the Champions League.

United had denied City the chance to wrap up the title last weekend when they came from two goals down to beat their bitter rivals 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium.

Chelsea's record of 30 wins last season may last only a year if City can add another three to their current 28.

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. "To achieve what he has achieved in the game is special and to be part of a group of players led by him can only help us to keep developing", De Bruyne said.

There's no doubt about it, Man City have dazzled and danced their way to the most coveted crown on these shores.

While Guardiola was busy finishing off a round of golf with world number 12 Tommy Fleetwood, City's stars wasted no time in toasting their title triumph.

Former England worldwide Gary Lineker, who now works as a television presenter, tweeted: "Congratulations to @ManCity on winning the Premier League title". He was previously Barcelona's most successful manager with 14 trophies in four years.

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

Thierry Henry: I am not surprised with what Pep has done in this league and past year, I was one of the people saying stop having a go at the man because that's how he plays. It is nearly unlikely that top talents like Kevin De Bruyne, Ederson Moraes, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero would have been playing for the Citizens.

There aren't many teams who have won the Premier League. "He has been able to transfer to the team that hunger and desire to never be satisfied".

Pundit Gary Lineker praised the manner of City's triumph, tweeting that it was "thoroughly deserved and won with a style of football that is truly joyous to watch" while dating app Tinder, one of the club's sponsors, posted a tongue-in-cheek message on Twitter: "Looks like we swiped right on a victor".

The City manager gave his players three days off following their win over Tottenham on Saturday, with the squad due back at the club's training ground on Wednesday.

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.

"The first time you win it, you think you'll win all of them", said Kompany.
