Manchester City win EPL title

City are on a run of three straight defeats and must bounce back at Wembley on Saturday

Vincent Kompany barely let Manchester City's Premier League title celebrations begin before setting his side the challenge of making it two in a row next season. Winning at Stamford Bridge gave us a feeling of, "OK, against the last champions, we are able to come here and play".

"You have to be consistent, not just one wonder season", Giggs said.

Pep Guardiola's transformation of Manchester City is complete after securing his first Premier League title thanks to Manchester United's 1-0 home loss to West Brom. "We conceded goals but the most important detail is not the goal you concede but the chances you concede and in every game it was few and [while] playing so offensively".

"It doesn't take a genius to tell us Manchester City are playing scintillating football right now".

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.

Guardiola's men also broke club records by going 28 games unbeaten in all competitions and, incorporating the end of last season, went 30 games unbeaten and recorded 20 consecutive wins at home. Of course next season it's not going to happen the same, it's impossible.

Finishing 11 points clear of Chelsea, the Gunners won 26 times and scored 73 goals, but mere numbers do not do justice to their majesty.

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

Arjen Robben and Damien Duff's pace on the wings allowed Chelsea to become a counter-attacking force, with midfielders Frank Lampard and Claude Makelele also producing standout campaigns.

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.

It may actually turn out to be a positive for Manchester City that they were unable to clinch the Premier League title by beating Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium little more than a week ago.

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

But Guardiola believes the 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge was a pivotal moment when Kevin De Bruyne's goal saw them pick up a deserved three points after dominating against the defending champions.

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