Mourinho slams United as they hand title to City

Pep Gaurdiola cheers Manchester City fans up after a game

Manchester City sealed the Premier League title on Sunday when local rivals Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to West Brom. A loss to City in the Manchester derby last week would have seen United concede the league in the worst fashion possible, but the Red Devils rallied from two goals down to win 3-2.

"We all believed", said Kompany.

Right-back Kyle Walker, who joined Man City last summer, said: "We did it!"

Vincent Kompany delivered an emotionally charged speech to Manchester City fans and players after the club's title triumph.

The Belgium global reserved special praise for manager Pep Guardiola, suggesting he wish he had the chance to work with him earlier in his career.

A serial victor as a manager with Barcelona and Bayern, Guardiola ended his first year in England at City without silverware - his only failure to win a trophy since his managerial career started back in 2007.

"So, make sure you visit us online or in-store at the CityStore Etihad Stadium or [Manchester] Arndale [Centre] to discover the latest fan must-haves". City have done things a little differently, with Guardiola demanding all of his players, including goalkeeper Ederson, use the ball effectively.


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.

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

On the blue side of Manchester the reaction was one of delight after a hard fortnight in which they lost to United and were dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool. He has retained core members of the team that contribute to City's recent title successes and harnessed vibrant young attacking signings such as Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus alongside them. But in the seven years that have followed, City have won the EPL twice - no more a Blue Moon, you will agree.

The defeat put United's second spot position in danger, as their advantage over third-placed Liverpool was reduced to just one point.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne on Twitter: "Unbelievable season for us".

Here's what pundits, managers and players have said after City won the league...
