Champs Man City among Premier League's greatest teams

Guardiola fires title warning Of course United can still win PL

Manchester United's attempts to congratulate rivals City on their Premier League win met with a furious reaction on Twitter from the club's fans.

But Ryan Giggs, who won 13 titles with Manchester United, believes City need to maintain their dominance for several seasons to join the all-time greats.

Manchester City clinched the English Premier League (EPL) football title with five rounds of games left as second-placed Manchester United fell 16 points behind following their 0-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion here on Sunday.

The 2012 title win had the infamous last-gasp goal by Sergio Aguero.

"It differs because we were consistent the whole season, that level expected of us".

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning", Kompany said.

An 18-match winning run from late-August to late-December laid the platform for the runaway title victory, and it was only a matter of when it would be clinched.

"They won because they were the best team, they lost only a few points".

It was a tribute to Ferguson's team-building genius that, just two seasons after the departure of the talismanic Eric Cantona, United were once again at the summit - this time thanks to legendary "Class of '92" graduates Giggs, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers.

"These guys are fantastic, awesome - they are incredible".

City have won three titles in the last seven seasons, but this is the first under Guardiola and Kompany wants the team to go on and have a period of total domination under him.

"I'm probably the first one to think about next season and I would like to stay humble".

Guardiola also praised his young players - with Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus scoring crucial goals - and he believes they will learn from their Champions League disappointment.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney formed a lethal attacking trio, with Ronaldo virtually unstoppable as he scored 31 league goals en route to winning the Ballon d'Or.

But he took the first opportunity to open his account this time around with Carabao Cup success against Arsenal in February and after three league titles in both Spain and Germany, Manchester United's loss to West Brom confirmed he can add England to that list. They are able to win their games - all six.

Goalkeeper Ederson Moraes was watching former club Benfica play Porto in the Portuguese league.

Lee Sharpe, Andrei Kanchelskis and Giggs cut a dash on the wings, while Cantona provided the inspiration alongside Mark Hughes up front.
