Some Massive Records Are Within Manchester City's Reach After Clinching Title

Manchester City clinches 2017-18 Premier League title

Manchester City chalked up some impressive wins in their march to the Premier League title.

Silva has been a key figure for City for much of the season, putting in some inspirational performances that have seen him nominated for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award.

The England worldwide scored one against Spurs and won a penalty in a man-of-the-match display, but missed two glaring chances and his prowess in front of goal has always been his weakness.

Mourinho claimed afterwards that he had not been happy after the City result because he knew they would win the league regardless and he accused some of his players of getting carried away.

What would have been most disappointing for the Old Trafford outfit is the fact that it was them that handed their "noisy neighbours" the title instead of making them wait even longer for it.

The 2017-18 Premier League champions have scored a breath-taking 93 goals so far and look comfortable to cross the 100-goal mark.

On Saturday, City had convincingly beaten Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 and manager Pep Guardiola said he was going to play golf with his son rather than watch United play West Brom.

Manchester United lies at the second spot 16 points adrift from the top with 71 points, Liverpool follows closely with 70 points at the third spot.

The 27-year-old stands by his decision to leave Spurs, but is still tipping them for a brighter future.

Given the way they have demolished all challengers in the league, it was apparent months ago that it was only a matter of when rather than if City would take the title.

Manchester United's defeat to West Brom on Sunday meant that Manchester City have been crowned the 2017/18 Premier League champions.

Can anyone stop City next season?

Five wins from five would give them 103 points - eclipsing Chelsea's record of 95 back in the 2004/05 season.

"It's the same feeling as the first time", the 32-year-old Belgium global, who unlike his manager did watch the game, told Sky Sports. They are all playing the way Pep wants them to play.

United hold the current record Premier League winning margin of 18 points and that could also fall to City.

"Now we have to try [to get better]".

Guardiola failed to win a trophy during his first season in English football but has now added the Premier League to the EFL Cup crown collected against Arsenal in February.

Ian Rush and Roger Hunt were the others with Rush's single season record of 47 goals now well within reach for the prolific Egyptian.

"You can't take it for granted", Kompany said.
