Meek loss for Manchester United shows gulf in class with rivals City

Even more alarming for their rivals, though, after Manchester United's 1-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday sealed City's triumph is that Pep Guardiola's latest fabulous creation may only be at the dawn of a potential new dynasty.

"I knew that sooner or later they would be (champions) and if I was in their position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Brom". In his eight seasons with City, Silva has only once been named the Premier League's player of the month, and only once made the team of the year.

Vinny sounds determined to buck the trend of champions underachieving the year after, something City have had happen to them twice, and wants the Blues to be ready for another assault on the title next season. "The levels that Pep Guardiola has taken City to this season, I can't see any of the other sides competing with them in the next five years if they continue playing at this level".

This is a new type of title win for the vast majority of City's fans. There's still work to be done before we see the best from the team. That left City 16 points ahead of their bitter rivals with just five games remaining.

Acquiring a hard-working but relatively average squad which finished 9th in the league in 2007-08 season, the ADUG immediately sanctioned big money purchases for the team, and have continued to invest heavily in the transfer market ever since. "Our City. Premier League Champions 17/18".

Mark Ogden, ESPN: "City have looked down on everyone this season virtually since the first ball was kicked last August".

But a first Premier League title, to go with the three La Liga titles he won as manager of Barcelona and the three Bundesliga titles he delivered for Bayern Munich, will be particularly satisfying. It equalled a Premier League milestone set by Manchester United in 2001, as City are unable to be caught and there are still five fixtures to play.
