Premier League title can help Man City grow in stature - Pep Guardiola

Share

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. It is important to believe because Manchester City is not like United or Chelsea or Arsenal - you know, the big clubs in England who have a big history behind them.

It was down to the phenomenal 93 strikes to have hit the net this season, more than any team has managed in a complete campaign since Manuel Pellegrini managed the club to a tally of 102 in 2014, when they also won the league.

It's the target to say we were able to to do that and if we are able to do it once then we are able to do it twice so we have to try to be consistent next season. We controlled it so much, they didn't know whether to press us, whether to stay back, and there was something in between in the end.

Manchester City players were not expecting Jose Mourinho's men to lose at home to West Brom and Kompany watched the game with his family, rather than with his team-mates.

With 28 league victories so far, City need three more wins to top Chelsea's record of 30 Premier League wins in a season.

And Kompany paid a handsome tribute to Guardiola, who has now won league titles as a manager with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City. City have done things a little differently, with Guardiola demanding all of his players, including goalkeeper Ederson, use the ball effectively.

Though their African stars, Ivory Coast's Yaya Toure and Senegal's Benjamin Mendy, did not play as much as they would have liked to, their talents, combined with the sublime Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and captain Vincent Company, have ensured City can not be overtaken, with five games to play this season. "The Premier League is the constant - every day, every day, every day - and we were there every day".

Some have suggested that run of defeats should eliminate City from the running when it comes to comparing the best ever Premier League teams.

Can someone please go and let the Premier League, the FA, UEFA, FIFA and the Court for Arbitration of Sport no about this please and help get the title taken off of City.

Kompany was roared on as he spoke, with fans and players breaking into the "championes" chant when their skipper had stopped speaking.

"I'm probably the first one to think about next season".

"It's the same feeling as the first time", the 32-year-old Belgium global, who unlike his manager did watch the game, told Sky Sports.
