This win at Spurs was a testament to City's resilience and quality, with the trip to Wembley regarded as one that could have seen them lose a fourth successive game.

United's defeat crowned City as EPL champions for the third time, their fifth title in England's first division league and the first under Spanish coach Pep Guardiola, reports Efe.

"And the fact they won the Premier League at a canter playing the sort of football they have, nearly reinventing the game - nobody has come close to winning the Premier League with 65-66 per cent possession - that is a lot of credit in the bank". Real Madrid, years ago, lost five games in a row and didn't win the league.

City chief executive Ferran Soriano said: "Winning the Premier League again is a great honour for Manchester City".

"I think Manchester City agreed with VAR but the other top teams, United, Chelsea, I think didn't want it".

Christian Eriksen's goal on 42 minutes halved the deficit and gave Spurs hope of a second-half fightback, but Raheem Sterling confirmed City's victory by netting from close range on 72 minutes.

But it quickly became clear that run of three successive defeats wasn't weighing on City. Now the 26-year-old Belgian is the best midfielder in the Premier League.

West Brom were 12 points adrift of safety, winless in the league since January prior to kickoff and under the watch of caretaker boss Darren Moore, but offered the hosts an early warning shot with a couple of chances.

With runaway leader Juventus on 81 points and Napoli second on 77, Inter, Roma and Lazio - with 60 points each ahead of the Rome derby Sunday night - are locked in a three-way battle for the last two Champions League spots.

"The journalists just judge results, I am sorry I don't talk about performance because you don't care".

"After that, in a competition like the Champions League, with decisions and good opponents happen in both games we can not complete closely against Liverpool but for the rest of the season, even the game against Wigan with 10 against 11 we were outstanding".

Guardiola's men opened the scoring on 22 minutes when Gabriel Jesus scored following a long pass from Vincent Kompany. We have another chance but when one team in November, December has to hear every day they are already champions, it is so complicated to focus on what we have to do.

City's celebrations were barely over by the time they were 2-0 up just three minutes later.

The Belgium ace reckons the best is still to come from City and the captain said: "It is one of the first thing I noticed within the first month of him arriving at the club".
