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

EPL Fixtures 9- 10 December Manchester and Mersey derby delight on Gameweek 16

Manchester City's Spanish manager Pep Guardiola shouts instructions to his players from the touchline during the English Premier League football match between Manchester City and Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on April 7, 2018.

It is the third time in seven seasons City have won the title, and the first in Pep Guardiola's reign. In fact, it didn't even play a game.

The man most often picked out by Guardiola himself as the heartbeat of this City side, Kevin De Bruyne looks set to battle with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah for the Premier League player of the year awards. Probably because I won eight championships, I was not in the moon with the victory against them.

Sergio Aguero became the all-time top scorer for Manchester City with 199 goals.

United have scored a full 30 goals fewer than City this season and Mourinho has not managed to get his side to click, despite being able to bring on further talent such as Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.

City's club captain, who celebrated the win live on camera, spoke to Sky Sports in the aftermath of City being crowned champions.

After the drama of the derby last week, Manchester United completely folded in half against bottom of the league West Brom on Sunday afternoon, leaving Manchester City the most unexpectedly expected Premier League champions since football began in 1992.

Guardiola also praised his young players - with Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus scoring crucial goals - and he believes they will learn from their Champions League disappointment.

City have won 14 games on the road this season and have two to go away from home - winning both of those would beat Chelsea's record of 15. Today was a day for the blues and there have been more days for the reds.

Guardiola said in March that Mateo was "doing well" and, following confirmation of City's title triumph, Silva thanked fans on social media for their support during a "tough year", attaching a photo of himself holding his son. I think with my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency.

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him.

"I am so glad to be here and be part of this club".

Speaking after Saturday's 3-1 win over Tottenham, the 47-year-old gave all the credit to his players.
