Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany and teammates John Stones, Bernardo Silva, Fabian Delph and Kyle Walker celebrated their Premier League title win on Sunday with fans at Hale Wine Bar in Manchester.

Kompany, whose return to regular fitness has been a key factor in City's success this season, said there could be no talk of domination after they won a first league title since 2014. Watch the best goals from Manchester City from their 2017-18 title-winning campaign.

United hold the current record Premier League winning margin of 18 points and that could also fall to City.

"We've got Reds in the family, we've got Blues in the family".

Guardiola, who failed to land a new prize in his very first season in charge in The Etihad, started his own account by winning the League Cup in February towards Arsenal.

The 3-0 loss at Anfield was Manchester City's most damaging defeat of the season.
