Pep Guardiola keen to celebrate Premier League title against Swansea next week

Pep Guardiola keen to celebrate Premier League title against Swansea next week”

Kompany watched Manchester United's shocking 1-0 defeat to West Brom, which handed City the title on Sunday, with his wife Carla at her United-supporting father's home before broadcasting his celebrations live on social media.

Guardiola also said that, if his side wins the Premier League, it will be one of the finest achievements of his career: "The Premier League is going to be one of the nicest and most important, definitely".

Yet they still clinch the trophy with five games to spare - a joint-Premier League record - after dominating the division for most of the campaign.

It's not just two games, it's about the course of the season and the quality football that City have played game after game.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola will be playing a "golf game" tomorrow instead of watching Manchester United's fixture with West Brom.

Yet, knowing the job was nearly done, he gave his players a ringing endorsement after they returned to their best with a superb 3-1 win over Spurs at Wembley on Saturday.

Manchester City has been a force to reckon with throughout the 2017-18 Premier League season and they deservedly conquered the league title on Sunday after a routine victory over Tottenham.

United was too narrow and predictable, with wide players Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata constantly cutting inside and leaving the midfield congested.

He missed many games as a a result of the incident as he had to travel to Spain where he spent time with his wife and family.

But the deficiencies in Guardiola's team are now becoming apparent and they are being exacerbated by the fatigue factor which has begun to set in.

City though have never successfully defended a league title and Kompany is hoping he can help build a dynasty at the Etihad.

"You can win the Champions League in seven games, the league is 10 months".

"It shows how football is in Manchester".

It was a far cry from his trophy-less first season with City and Kompany said Guardiola's tenacious attitude led them to the summit.

The defeat put United's second spot position in danger, as their advantage over third-placed Liverpool was reduced to just one point. The first time you lose it you never think you're going to win it again. I have three days off and tomorrow I have golf.

"We believed in the methods".

But a first Premier League title, to go with the three La Liga titles he won as manager of Barcelona and the three Bundesliga titles he delivered for Bayern Munich, will be particularly satisfying.

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