Kompany celebrates City title with emotional speech

City's 3-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday left them on the brink of success and Manchester United's surprise 1-0 defeat at home to rock-bottom West Brom saw Pep Guardiola's side finally wrap up the title.

"They lost only two matches [this season] because they were the best team", Mourinho said.

Sure in the past couple of weeks they were trash against Liverpool twice and threw away a lead against Manchester United but it's been the only ammo we've had.until now!

City captain Vincent Kompany, however, wants his team to now defend the title and win it again next year.

After finishing third in his first season in charge, Pep Guardiola made a few tweaks to his Manchester City squad and delivered a dominant second campaign.

Manchester City now has five Premier League titles. You simply have to see this video to believe it, it has received over 2000 retweets on Twitter so if it is an outrageous marketing strategy you have to say it has worked. I want to see how we react now next season.

Despite blowing the chance to win the league against United last weekend, City still matched United's record by claiming the title with five games to spare.

Though their African stars, Ivory Coast's Yaya Toure and Senegal's Benjamin Mendy, did not play as much as they would have liked to, their talents, combined with the sublime Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and captain Vincent Company, have ensured City can not be overtaken, with five games to play this season.

The Premier League's record points tally of 95, set by Chelsea in 2004-05, is within City's reach if they can take nine from their last fixtures. "The Premier League is the constant - every day, every day, every day - and we were there every day".

There is no right or wrong in football, because it has been proven you can win the league and cups in many different ways. It equalled a Premier League milestone set by Manchester United in 2001, as City are unable to be caught and there are still five fixtures to play.

"The difference is that we were consistent the whole season and played at the level we are expected to perform at", Kompany said.

Mark Ogden, ESPN: "City have looked down on everyone this season virtually since the first ball was kicked last August".
