Manchester City champions: Five key players that helped them win the title

Pep Guardiola's side put themselves on the brink of title glory with Saturday's 3-1 victory at Tottenham and Manchester United's failure to take points off West Brom on Sunday left City beyond mathematical reach.

Well done City, you've managed to balls up the most impressive Premier League title win we've seen in years.

Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry on Sky Sports: They deserve to be champions, I am sure they would have liked to do it against Swansea but now they can play against Swansea with a happier smile on their face because they all know they're champions and they deserve it.

Defeat for Spurs handed Chelsea a glimmer of hope in the fight for Champions League places after it came from 2-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2, but Liverpool strengthened its position in the top four as Mohamed Salah scored his 40th goal of the season in a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

Apparently club superstars like Claudio Bravo and Phil Foden would be playing in City's final game of the season as well.

Given the way they have demolished all challengers in the league, it was apparent months ago that it was only a matter of when rather than if City would take the title.

"It's more complicated. But I think for the club, not just the players, all the departments in the club can believe".

United hold the current record Premier League winning margin of 18 points and that could also fall to City. It was always a matter of when rather than if City would be champions after they led the way for most of the season.

"That is why he has to work harder but if he is able to learn, he is going to win important Premier Leagues and help his confidence".

David Silva who has been superb for Manchester City this season however took the chance to reflect on his special year by uploading a photo with his son who was born prematurely in December 2017.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinhosaid: "I think we were deservedly punished".

It sets the right tone, ensures the campaign ends in the right mood, and could also now see them hit a lot of records as well as the right notes.

"They won because they were the best team, they lost only a few points".

"The moment he can (improve) his average chances to score a goal, he will become one of the best players in the world", Guardiola said after the Saturday evening kick-off. It's good for the Premier League as well.
