Manchester City wins English Premier League title after rivals Manchester United stumble

Sterling can be one of the best in the world- Guardiola

The Blues were crowned champions with five games to spare on Sunday after West Brom beat Manchester United at Old Trafford. "Record-smashing, goal-scoring, swashbuckling and awe-inspiring - Guardiola has overseen a scintillating campaign, setting new standards of brilliance in English football", Man City said in their website.

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

"This one differs in that we were consistent the whole season and we were able to play at the level we're expected to perform at".

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

Pep Guardiola's side cant be caught at the top of the table after United's shock defeat to the bottom-of-the-table Baggies.

The defeat for Spurs was their first in 14 Premier League games going back to the reverse fixture with City in December. "One of the things we have to improve is our consistency".

The 47-year-old Catalan is a special breed amongst modern-day managers because of the specifics of his preparation and how he wants his teams to play. While it was the tipping point, United's result wasn't the reason City won the league - that was down to the eight months of exhilarating football the champions played.

Timberwolves miss an opportunity in Game 1 loss to Houston
Houston average 122 points per game against the T-wolves, with an average margin of victory of 15 points. Eric Gordon is the third double-digit scorer and Clint Capela is grabbing 10.8 rebounds.

And with more money coming from owner Sheikh Mansour in the off-season, Pep will continue to build on the City dynasty for years to come. They were unbeaten in the Premier League until January 14, when Liverpool ended that wonderful run at Anfield.

And Guardiola claims a 1-0 win over Chelsea in October was when he realised the Premier League title may be heading to the Etihad this term.

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

Other players, analysts and broadcasters congratulated the champions, with varying degrees of joy and despair.

Much of the blame for Guardiola's first-season struggles was pinned on a series of errors from Claudio Bravo, brought from Barcelona to replace the ostracised Joe Hart.

Guardiola may have spent massive money ahead of the season to bolster his squad, but the signings made gave City an edge.

Mark Ogden, ESPN: "City have looked down on everyone this season virtually since the first ball was kicked last August".
