City crowned EPL Champions after Man. United lost at home

Over the last week, City was dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and missed the chance to seal top spot by losing to Manchester United.

"You can not imagine what it means ... you can not imagine", sighed Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City manager. "After what happened and how the people reacted, these guys are fantastic". Incredible. What they lived the other week was so unfair. Real Madrid, years ago, lost [five] games in a row and didn't win the league.

It wouldn't be the first time Thiago has followed Guardiola to a new club - he signed for Bayern immediately after Pep's arrival in 2013.

Jesus struck in the 22nd minute when he raced onto Vincent Kompany's 60-yard ball and fired home.

Given City's capitulation against United last week, Tottenham's goal changed the dynamic of the game and the hosts were camped in City's half for the opening 20 minutes after the resumption.

Television cameras captured the moment the Belgian discovered he was a three-time champion but, after an initial burst of excitement, he was focusing on the potential for even more success.

Three times in six days, City found themselves on the wrong end of defeats against Liverpool (twice) and Manchester United, with two of those losses coming in games City had led at half-time. However, Guardiola has coaxed some of the finest form of Aguero's stellar career from the Argentina global this season - his contribution to City's overall play improved to the extent that it would seem foolish to start that work all over again with a marquee signing. But it doesn't depend on the United result, it's in our hands, it's up to us to win our games, and we are able to win two games'.

Silva added to a body of work that makes him arguably City's greatest ever while playing through the unenviable hardship of having his prematurely born son lying in intensive care in Valencia.

Salah alone has 30 goals in the league, five more than Kane.

We get it Pep, you like golf.

Crystal Palace had been set to drop into the bottom three on goal difference prior to Chelsea's comeback.

Guardiola, speaking after Saturday's 3-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley, declared his own satisfaction at the superb efforts of his squad this term.

City let slip a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 in the Manchester derby on 7 April, when victory would have clinched the title.
