"People are asking whether we are the best Premier League side in history, but the answer is no, because we have a lot of work to still do".

"He has been one of the three mainstay players in City's team in what has been a very impressive season". They can surpass Chelsea's Premier League record of 30 (2016-17) by winning three of their remaining five fixtures.

But they were back to their irresistible best against Spurs as Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan put them 2-0 up early on, with Sterling sealing the win after Christian Eriksen had given the hosts hope.

"He is still the one player that all the other City players love, respect and look up to because of what he has achieved in the game".

"You can't take them for granted - I've been lucky to win three but there have been so many I've missed as well", said Kompany.

"But my team mates might roll their eyes when I say this: I want to see how the reaction is going to be now. I've never retained the title and I want to see if this team has got it to carry on and be even more successful".


Kompany, whose return to regular fitness has been a key factor in City's success this season, said there could be no talk of domination after they won a first league title since 2014. We didn't expect this, we've been Facetiming, talking on the chat and everyone is in touch and as much as we're far away from each other at this moment in time, we are still very close, and we will somehow spend the night celebrating together.

City could potentially win the title on Sunday if second-placed United lose to West Brom or on Wednesday if Jose Mourinho's side are beaten by Bournemouth. That's the reason why they were champions.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne on Twitter: "Unbelievable season for us". Winning at Stamford Bridge gave us a feeling of, "OK, against the last champions, we are able to come here and play".

Thierry Henry: "I am not surprised with what Pep has done in this league and previous year, I was one of the people saying stop having a go at the man because that's how he plays".

"As much as this has been a record breaking season, this one's for you, the fans, this is why we do it!" said the skipper. "City have elevated the level of the football".
