“If there’s kids in the room, cover their ears or send them out”, Kompany said, as he toasted City’s third league title in the last six years – the club’s first sustained period of success since the late 1960s, nearly five decades ago. I think with my experience you don’t win titles with inconsistency. But tonight, we win it again! It’s awesome, such a hard achievement and I’m proud of the team and everyone involved. “I’m proud of everyone involved”. But you can not deny that we were good this season.

It’s how they’ve won it, especially when people were saying they can not do it this way. It was three years ago and I know how to win. “My team-mates will roll their eyes as I want to see the reaction from us next season as I’ve never been able to retain a title”.

“The only score I want to know is bogey or birdie”, Guardiola said prior to learning the result.

The Premier League’s record points tally of 95, set by Chelsea in 2004-05, is within City’s reach if they can take nine from their last fixtures.

Kompany and several of his teammates later toasted their title triumph with fans.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed that he was confident of landing the 2017-18 Premier League title when the Citizens beat the reigning champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge back in September.

Kompany and Co posed for photos as they left the venue at 10.30pm, leaving to a chorus of “campiones, ole, ole, ole“. Vincent Kompany did, with images showing the City captain celebrating at his in-laws’ house where he was having dinner.

Press Association was used in this report. “One of the things we have to improve is our consistency”.

“It’s not a dynasty”. For a team that at one point looked like imitating the Invincibles, it’s no surprise that they have managed to seal the title this soon. Then we can think about the World Cup and next season. There was a period of adaptation required for everyone. We live and survive by the strength of the team.

Jose Mourinho applauded Manchester City’s Premier League title success, but lambasted Manchester United after West Bromwich Albion’s shock 1-0 win on Sunday.

“That’s the reason why they were champions and probably because I won eight championships I was not in the moon [sic] with the victory against them [last week] because that doesn’t make me feel super happy”.

That team, of course, featured African star Nigeria’s Victor Moses, whose career took off when manager Antonio Conte converted him from an ordinary player to the specialised role of wing-back. As they stick into the game, you realise something could happen, and it’s a wonderful goal from Rodriguez, thank you!

He told Sky Sports, “It just shows how football is lived in Manchester”.

“There’s nothing better. Long may it continue and hopefully, every single Cityzen around the world parties for us tonight”.

City were excellent that day, as a stunning goal from Kevin De Bruyne capped off a dominant performance against the Blues. “Ultimately it’s banter, but he’s a better loser than a victor”.
