Why Manchester City's win over Tottenham Hotspurs meant so much more

Why Manchester City's win over Tottenham Hotspurs meant so much more Why Manchester City's win over Tottenham Hotspurs meant so much more

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.

The ownership change has certainly made an impact as City sealed their third Premier League title under the ADUG in a decade after many years of indifferent results of mid-table and relegation battles, which also saw them drop down to the lower divisions a couple of times.

Guardiola's side missed the chance to seal the title when they lost 3-2 at home to bitter rivals United last week, either side of two Champions League quarter-final defeats to Liverpool, and the Spaniard believes his side could still be vulnerable.

City claimed the crown with five games remaining, equalling the fastest-ever title success and are on schedule to break the points and goals record for a single season.

Other players, like Raheem Sterling, knew they had to shape up to even feature in such a competitive environment.

"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". I was unfortunate enough to play against that quality United side that dominated in the '90s, but this side would have beaten them - that's how good they are.

"The first time you think you are going to win all of them and the first time you lose it you think you are never going to win it again". They lost only two matches because they were the best team.

Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic on Sky Sports: They deserve the title, they played really good football for the whole year.

I want to see how we react now next season.

"I think we share one thing - he's been able to transfer to the team that hunger and desire to never be satisfied. So, we have to do it, like we have all season".

"The moment he can (improve) his average chances to score a goal, he will become one of the best players in the world", Guardiola said after the Saturday evening kick-off.

'Especially if you've been a Blue for more than forty years. There was a period of adaptation for him coming into the league and for us taking in his methods.

How campaigns finish does often dictate how they're remembered, regardless of how good you've been before that.
