Vincent Kompany delivers epic victory speech to Manchester City fans and players

Gary Neville Monday Night Football

It is the third time in seven seasons City have won the title, and the first in Pep Guardiola's reign.

It is ironic that United came back from 2-0 down against City themselves last weekend to win 3-2 and delay City's party, only to surrender so tamely on home soil.

City's Champions League conqueror moved ever closer to sealing its place in the competition next season as Liverpool cruised past Bournemouth with Salah again taking centrestage.

"The difference is that we were consistent the whole season and played at the level we are expected to perform at", Kompany said.

Fans of other clubs, unsurprisingly, were quick to respond. I have seen many teams win it as champions for the whole season, and it's the first case for us. The fifth title comes in the same manner as that first in 1937 - the rest were all clinched on the final day of the campaign.

SKY SPORTSGary Neville had to discuss Man City's title win after Man Utd's loss to West Brom

"Playing in the Champions League at that age, sometimes it's complicated and maybe it's a good lesson for them for the future and for next season".

Romping home to the title, Mourinho's Chelsea side of 2004-05 were lethal on their travels and accrued an impressive tally of 48 points on the road.

When it became reality, though, the truth is few cared.

City, who rebounded from the United loss and a European exit at the hands of Liverpool by beating Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, have 87 points with five games left. Considering the fact how they have demolished their rivals this season, it was only a forgone conclusion that the Pep Guardiola's men would win the title. This is one of the great Premier League teams. City's away winning run stretched from May 21 to December 27 and ended with a 0-0 draw to Crystal Palace. "Wonderful goal from Rodriguez - thank you!"

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 consistently using #sharkteam in his social media posts, he explained to The Telegraph a year ago it was because he believes City are the "big shark and when teams swim up alongside us we gobble them up". "That is giving importance to build up this club a little bit higher". Having two natural playmakers in the same midfield has made City nearly impossible to stop in the same way Guardiola harnessed the brilliant best from Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta in a glorious four-year spell at Barcelona from 2008 to 2012.
