Pep Guardiola: 'Premier League tougher to win than Champions League'

'And OK, Sergio (Aguero) is a genius, a top player about 30 years old but the other guys are 20, 21 years old, so we won with guys so young.

It is hard to speak about Manchester City for me, but what Pep Guardiola has done is awesome; to win the title with the football he plays is great.

There is a sense that Pep Guardiola's expensively-assembled side could be entering a period of domination, however, and Kompany says that is the next target for the squad.

The defeat for Spurs was their first in 14 Premier League games going back to the reverse fixture with City in December. They deserve all my respect.

"And, fingers crossed, he will go to Russian Federation injury free and still in good form, and as a Premier League victor to boot".

If United - who denied Guardiola's team the title by beating them last weekend - win both games, City can still clinch it with a victory against Swansea next weekend.

After 33 rounds of matches, Pep Guardiola-coached Man City have 87 points, while Man United have 71 points. The amount of goals, chances and points, to do that in the Premier League, with the contenders we have, is because the players are so good.

"He has been one of the three mainstay players in City's team in what has been a very impressive season".

"Today I am happy and I suppose my team-mates might roll their eyes at this, but I want to see the reaction now".

"The difference is that we were consistent the whole season and played at the level we are expected to perform at", Kompany said. "I have never been able to retain a title and I want to see if this team has got it to carry on and be even more successful".

They've now won three of the last seven PL titles available. We didn't expect this, we've been Facetiming, talking on the chat and everyone is in touch and as much as we're far away from each other at this moment in time, we are still very close, and we will somehow spend the night celebrating together.

"As much as this has been a record breaking season, this one's for you, the fans, this is why we do it!" said the skipper. It will be more complicated but for the club, the players, all the departments in the club, the people can believe we are good: Manchester City is a good club.
