Montage: A Blue Monday for United as City are crowned champions

Manchester City Clinches Premier League Title

Manchester City Clinches Premier League Title

And Mourinho, speaking after the game, insisted he was making no excuses and noted that Man City were deserved champions. Before you know it, it's gone.

Jose Mourinho's had side spoiled City's title party with a win in the Manchester derby last weekend, but failed to do so a second time after conceding a late Jay Rodriguez goal to hand City the title.

Pep Guardiola's side won the league with five games to spare, but in a manner most unexpected following a slip-up by their city rivals.

City captain Vincent Kompany watched the United-West Brom match at home with his family while his father in-law, a Manchester United fan, was present as the Red Devils slipped up. It is possible to win the league that way. That's the reason why they were champions.

City are also within reach of records for most wins (City 28; record is 30); most away wins (City 14; record is 15) and most away points (City 44; record is 48). It's the target to say we were able to to do that and if we are able to do it once then we are able to do it twice so we have to try to be consistent next season. David Silva and Leroy Sane are also in double figures and if Raheem Sterling, now on eight, can join them they will be the first team ever with four players reaching that mark.

Manchester City have wrapped up the Premier League title despite five games still left to be played this season. An awesome journey to get here! "All the lads have done so well and it feels great to be part of this really special group of players", City defender Kyle Walker said.

Under the tutelage of Guardiola, Manchester City has been absolutely phenomenal in the current season.

"We are delighted to have done so providing our supporters with some very exciting and unforgettable moments".

Henceforth, City would eye surpassing Chelsea's record 95 points accumulated in a single season.

City defender Benjamin Mendy, who missed most of the season due to injury, turned social media blue as he tweeted: "We are f*****g champions congratulations boys!"

"Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues".

"These players deserve all my respect because they have been unbelievable all season".

Fuelled by the majestic form of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, City set a new Premier League record earlier this season by winning 18 successive matches.

After their limp Champions League exit against Liverpool, a City collapse against Tottenham would have had the critics carping that Guardiola has no Plan B when things go wrong. City now lead United by 16 points and by the end of the season they could very well re-write the record books.
