Manchester City clinch Premier League title

Manchester City clinch Premier League title

A week later than they would have preferred, Manchester City have been crowned Premier League champions as second-placed Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to bottom club West Bromwich Albion.

Vincent Kompany delivered an emotionally charged speech to Manchester City fans and players after the club's title triumph.

The Blues could have made history though and taken the title sooner if they hadn't lost 3-2 against Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium. Instead, some players had even left the country after being given a couple of days off by Guardiola.

"That's the reason why they were champions and probably because I won eight championships I was not in the moon [sic] with the victory against them [last week] because that doesn't make me feel super happy".

Defeat for Spurs handed Chelsea a glimmer of hope in the fight for Champions League places after it came from 2-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2, but Liverpool strengthened its position in the top four as Mohamed Salah scored his 40th goal of the season in a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth. Some pundits are already ranking City - who at one stage this season won a record 18 successive league games - alongside Manchester United's 1999 treble winners and the 2003-04 Arsenal "Invincibles". Manchester City has won 28.

"My feeling is that United will win a lot of points because they are in a good shape and have top players".

May said intelligence and open source accounts indicated that the Syrian government was behind the attack in Douma last Saturday. Trump said the USA would maintain pressure on Syria until the Assad regime suspends use of chemical weapons.

"This one differs in that we were consistent the whole season and we were able to play at the level we're expected to perform at".

The club captain, a solid figure in centre of the team's defence, and also the official Club "Player of the Year" for four consecutive seasons, Dunne was a central figure in the pre-ADUG Man City team. They lost only two matches because they were the best team.

"The first one was special but this one is perhaps the one I'm most proud of. We conceded goals but the most important detail is not the goal you concede but the chances you concede and in every game it was few and [while] playing so offensively".

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.

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him. For good measure, they also passed and touched the ball more.
