Man City owner Sheikh Mansour called Guardiola after title confirmed

Man City owner Sheikh Mansour called Guardiola after title confirmed

City were confirmed as Premier League champions on Sunday courtesy of second-placed Manchester United's shock 1-0 home defeat to the league's basement club West Bromwich Albion.

But on April 15, 2018, Guardiola won his seventh league title in his last nine seasons as a manager when Manchester United, a week after beating their rivals at the Etihad lost at Old Trafford to the league's bottom side, West Brom.

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in ideal style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate. In his eight seasons with City, Silva has only once been named the Premier League's player of the month, and only once made the team of the year.

'We all believed in it, otherwise it wouldn't happen, ' Kompany said.

"Winning at Stamford Bridge gave us a feeling of, 'OK, against the last champions, we are able to come here and play'".

"We're looking forward to the celebrations, but first we have five important games to play and we want to win them all".


While Pep Guardiola was busy playing golf and claimed he wasn't going to watch United's match against West Brom, Vincent Kompany was seen watching - and celebrating - the Baggies' win.

The England global is City's second-highest scorer behind Sergio Aguero but his goals have also come at some key moments on their road to the title. When you say: "Pep, what you have done in Barcelona or Bayern Munich is it possible to do that without those big players?" I don't like to wait and see a team lose so it was different.

240: This is how many days Manchester City remained atop the Premier League table in the 2017-18 season, having cruised to a massive 12-point lead by the turn of the year.

No matter what they tell you now, when the Premier League season began in August, Manchester City fans did not believe their team would walk to their third title in seven campaigns. Wherever you look, City have broken records or stand on the verge of creating another. They were unbeaten in the Premier League until January 14, when Liverpool ended that awesome run at Anfield.

Manchester City will lift the Premier League trophy after their game against Huddersfield on May 6, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

Other players, analysts and broadcasters congratulated the champions, with varying degrees of joy and despair. Thank you for your support all season!
