Man City eye record books after clinching title

Manchester City celebrated the title with posting this image on its official social media platforms with the caption "Our Time".

City captain Vincent Kompany was watching the match with his family, including his United supporting father-in-law, and the club sent someone round ready to broadcast the scenes on the off chance that United slipped up. "I've never been able to retain a title and I want to see whether this team can be even more successful".

Kompany, whose return to regular fitness has been a key factor in City's success this season, said there could be no talk of domination after they won a first league title since 2014.

"I think we all believed in the style, otherwise it wouldn't have happened". This one is the one I'm proud about in the way we've done it, but the first one was special for everyone.

Kompany was joined by Bernardo Silva, John Stones, Fabian Delph and Kyle Walker joined the skipper at a packed Hale Wine Bar, where the players were seen belting out Oasis' Wonderwall and being serenaded by supporters expressing their delight and gratitude.

"[This season] differs in the fact that we were consistent", the Belgian explained. "When I was 20 I would have been a ideal player for him", he said.

No club has won back-to-back Premier League titles since United claimed three in a row from 2006 to 2009, and the previous three champions suffered post-title slumps.

"You can't stay in your front room when you win the Premier League", one of those associated with City said as he exited the venue to no doubt continue the celebrations elsewhere.

"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". It is one title. I think there was a period of adaptation that was needed, for him and us.

"We believed in the methods".

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning".

City will lift the trophy regardless of the result, but you'd be safe to assume they will want to do it in style, and stick a few goals past the Swans.

"It shows how football is in Manchester".

"It's been a fucking long journey... especially if you've been a blue for more than forty years in your heart! [Carla's dad] is a better loser than victor!"
