Guardiola adamant Man City are no Champions League flops

Guardiola adamant Man City are no Champions League flops

Second-place United are now 16 points behind Pep Guardiola's side with only five games left to pay.

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

Vincent Kompany says he is proud of everyone at Manchester City after they clinched the Premier League title with five games remaining. "Manchester City, we won it for you" chanted West Brom fans at full-time as United supporters began jeering in frustration at their side gift-wrapping the title for City.

The 2012 title win had the infamous last-gasp goal by Sergio Aguero.

City's club captain, who celebrated the win live on camera, spoke to Sky Sports in the aftermath of City being crowned champions. "Premier League Champions 17/18", City tweeted soon after the final whistle, when the fifth English top-flight title of its history was assured.

Plus, City need three more wins to better Chelsea's record of 30 Premier League wins in a season.

Guardiola also praised his young players - with Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus scoring crucial goals - and he believes they will learn from their Champions League disappointment.

Guardiola's men were on course to drop points in two of their opening three games until Sterling's 97th-minute victor at Bournemouth back in August kicked off an 18-match winning run in the league.

R. Lee Ermey, star of 'Full Metal Jacket', has died
Although Ermey identified himself as a political independent, many of his views aligned closely with the Republican party. According to a statement that his manager posted on Facebook, Ermey died from complications from pneumonia.

"We played so good in many games", Guardiola said.

"The first time you win it, you think you'll win all of them", said Kompany. They are able to win their games - all six.

"It shows how football is in Manchester. We conceded goals but the most important detail is not the goal you concede but the chances you concede and in every game it was few and [while] playing so offensively".

The England worldwide scored one against Spurs and won a penalty in a man-of-the-match display, but missed two glaring chances and his prowess in front of goal has always been his weakness. "It's a privilege to be a part of this team".

In the tune of 'If you're happy and you know it (!?)' Man City's official partner produced a video featuring City players and fans celebrating their title win.

It was a far cry from his trophy-less first season with City and Kompany said Guardiola's tenacious attitude led them to the summit. I'd like to stay humble - this is not a dynasty, it's one title. There was a period of adaptation for him coming into the league and for us taking in his methods.

"He has been able to transfer to the team that hunger and desire to never be satisfied".

The 32-year-old who has been nominated for this year's PFA Player of the Year was holding his child while wearing a hospital gown in the photo.
