Manchester City crowned EPL champion at Old Trafford!

16 April 2018

They could yet beat three significant Premier League landmarks set by Chelsea - the highest points tally of 95 in 2004-2005, the most wins in a season at 30 in 2016-2017 and the most goals scored at 103 in 2009-2010.

Manchester City have been confirmed as Premier League champions after Manchester United suffered a shock home defeat to West Brom on Sunday.

Mourinho used a powerful blueprint to break Arsenal and Manchester United's duopoly, focusing on building a defence that, anchored by John Terry and Ricardo Carvalho, would concede only 15 goals - less than half the number let in by second-placed Arsenal.

A United victory would keep City's champagne on ice for a few more days at least.

"My feeling is that United will win a lot of points because they are in a good shape and have top players".

But the Spaniard believes leading City to the title would rank among his finest moments.

Speaking after the win over Tottenham, Guardiola admitted winning the title in England would be one of the greatest achievements of his glittering career. "Physicality, weather conditions, the amount of games; the Premier League is so tough".

"So hopefully he'll be ready for the last games if we need him and for his World Cup". "It's one of the best by far".

United had just achieved what many deemed impossible, winning the Premier League, FA Cup and European Cup treble.

The Premier League bottom side held on to the lead as the match ended 1-0 to the side from the Hawthorns.

However, Rohanpreet edged out his competitor from Kerala with a whisker, setting up a target of 78 per cent for Hemant Brijwasi. In order to make the game more lively, host Ravi Dubey played and organized a game which was quite amusing and entertaining.

The record number of wins by a club in a single top-flight season is 31, by Tottenham Hotspur in 1960-61.

Pep Guardiola claims Manchester City did not fail in the Champions League despite their quarter-final exit.

Guardiola, who said that City have 14 players available "plus the kids" for the clash with Tottenham, does not know when Aguero will pass fit. They don't understand anything. The league is nine months.

A year on from becoming the most expensive English player in history, Sterling looked a broken player at the end of Euro 2016.

While Guardiola has admitted to doubts over his future last season, he never wavered in the way he wanted his side to play.

"These guys are fantastic, awesome - they are incredible". Asked if it would be extra special to win a league where some said his purist principles wouldn't work, Guardiola said: "Yes".

Nonetheless, Guardiola hopes City will handle the pressure. Aguero thinks he's won it in injury time with a header, but Rooney goes right up the other end with a fantastic solo goal to level the scores. He won three league titles with Barcelona and twice lifted the Champions League trophy during his Camp Nou reign.

They will nearly certainly still be relegated.

On the play, defender Aymeric Laporte's attempt to clear a pass from Harry Kane bounced off Christian Erikson's shins and across the goal line.

With just minutes remaining they get their reward, Robert Pires pouncing on a misplaced backpass to slot past Ederson.
