Mourinho admits City 'the best team' after loss hands rivals title

Here is nother feat they can achieve: City have won 14 games away from home this season and have two to go away from home - winning both of those would beat Chelsea's record of 15.

It was undoubtedly an embarrassing result but United still showed their class and congratulated City on their title win with a short, yet very respectable post on Twitter. "Previously we've almost thrown it away and come back with character".

Can anyone stop City next season? We've got red and blues in the family. "In other times we almost threw it away". It's amusing how fortunes can change over the course of the season, as United are now accused of playing boring football.

"I think we all believed in [his tactics]".

City manager Pep Guardiola didn't bother to watch the United game, opting for a round of golf with his son Marius.

Fernandinho and Sergio Aguero are still very much considered first team regulars at the club, but due to their advanced ages, they could make way for a few younger faces in the coming months. "That will give us a lot of points in the future".

There were wins for Crystal Palace and Huddersfield Town in their bids to avoid relegation, while Burnley continued their charge to a Europa League place with victory over Leicester City. Should they win four more games, they'll take Chelsea's record number of wins, set last season.

"He unlocks everything but when you think about it he did much, much better than last season and that was important".

Right-back Kyle Walker, who joined Man City last summer, said: "We did it!"

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.

"But in general we were so, so stable". Great job guys. Our effort, hard work and dedication paid off. Thank you to all the fans for your unconditional support!

We look at how the United Kingdom football writers rate Guardiola's current crop of stars.

"If I had met Pep when I was 20-years-old I would have been the ideal player for him and would have been able to improve so much".

The 23-year-old took his tally for the season to 22 goals in all competitions with the third goal. "Our City. Premier League Champions 17/18".

Sergio Aguero says he is relieved Manchester City have wrapped up the Premier League title before the final game of the season.

"Wednesday afternoon we will be back".

"We were masters in complicated football, everything was complicated", said Mourinho.

So, where does this City side stand in terms of the Premier League's best ever teams?
