Pep Guardiola says winning Premier League title will be among top feats

Pep Guardiola says winning Premier League title will be among top feats”

"City was the best team, sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league", Mourinho said. City have been unable to hold onto a lead in two of their biggest games of the season, so changes had to be made to halt that run. City were without Aguero, who had sustained a rib injury in a auto crash, but Kevin De Bruyne made sure the Argentina striker wasn't missed as he slammed in the victor in the 67th minute.

Pep Guardiola has admitted Manchester City do not have the history of United, Chelsea or Arsenal and has challenged his team to make this season the beginning of a successful era for the club.

City put themselves in position to win the league by bouncing back from a bitterly disappointing week to ease past Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday to remind everyone why they have been the best side in the country by a distance this season.

A week after spoiling City's title party, United duly handed the league to their local rivals. "It's more hard [to win in England]". Guardiola has regularly noted his club's lack of pedigree in the Champions League, but over-wrought tactical tweaks in high-pressure knockout games have become a complex of his own. That's why winning in this way, hopefully next Sunday it will remain in our hearts for the rest of our life.

"We were able to play at the level that we are expected to perform at and I think the previous times when we have won it a lot of times you can actually say that we almost through it away". Sterling added two more late on as City again underlined their dominance of the Premier League. "I've been lucky to win three titles but so many I've missed as well".

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said on the club's website.

"These guys are fantastic and awesome". "What's happened in the last week is so unfair, but we have a second chance against Swansea and we're going to try and be champions". But having surrendered leads to United and Liverpool in the previous seven days, the visitors could have stumbled once more when Christian Eriksen brought Spurs back into the game before the break. It was so good. "The performance was so good".

City will be crowned champions if Manchester United slip up against West Bromwich Albion or Bournemouth in their next two matches.

Guardiola headed for the greens with his son Marius and pro golfer Tommy Fleetwood, telling reporters at Wembley: "Tomorrow, I have golf with my son and friends... bogey, double bogey, birdie".

But Mourinho argued after the final whistle that the title win was inevitable, and that the exact game in which the Premier League was secured mattered little.

Spurs showed flashes, and they might be the closest challengers next season, but they could not sustain it, while United's Jekyll-and-Hyde season was summed up by their defeat against West Brom.
