Man City eyes record books after clinching title

Man City eyes record books after clinching title

"My third league but this one is the most special", he wrote on his official Twitter account. Last not 20 years ago, it was three.

City's club captain, who celebrated the win live on camera, spoke to Sky Sports in the aftermath of City being crowned champions.

However, the Gunners now risk the ignominy of finishing the season seventh behind Burnley after a fifth consecutive away league defeat as they lost 2-1 at Newcastle on Sunday.

Yet for the four decades I can properly remember watching football, there has been no title-winner who has played a more bewitching brand of football.

One of his summer signings, Kyle Walker, was already a proven attacking wing-back when Guardiola brought him from Tottenham, but he now looks at home playing as a more central defender and in Guardiola's clever approach of moving fullbacks into holding midfield roles when the team is in possession.

Manchester City are now 16 points ahead of 2nd placed side Manchester United - the Premier League record points gap between 1st and 2nd place at the end of a season is now 18 points by Manchester United in 1999-00.

Records have tumbled - the run of 18 straight wins in the league being one of them - and more could follow in the coming weeks as City bids to finish the season with more points, goal and wins than any other team in a single top-flight campaign.




"One team was dominant in Germany and one had Messi, but we are nothing without the team".

West Brom hadn't won in the Premier League since January, losing nine of their last 10 league games to slip to the brink of relegation.

Kay writes: "City have never had it so good, not even in their late 1960s pomp under Joe Mercer, but, ten years into Sheikh Mansour's ownership, it is time they set their sights even higher".

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Manchester City star David Silva announced that his son Mateo was born prematurely in Valencia. "But we are nothing without the team".

The mood inside the United camp has been buoyed by their thrilling derby victory over champions-elect Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Few have the luxury of Liverpool's clinical forward line of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, though.

Guardiola and his players will have the chance to celebrate properly on Sunday when they host Swansea in their next fixture. But maybe it will be a lesson for the future for them and next season.

City fans will hope Guardiola is the coach that does so.
