Manchester is Blue! - City players react to Premier League title triumph

Manchester City confirmed as champions as rivals United lose

They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points.

The match had looked on course to end in a stalmate, with top-drawer saves from David De Gea and Ben Foster the highlights before Rodriguez's goal from a corner handed a third Premier League crown to City.

Manchester United were determined to make city rivals, Manchester City wait for as long as possible to be crowned champions of the English Premier League for the 2017/2018 season after they stopped them last week at the Etihad stadium, courtesy of a desperate fight back as it looked like the Citizens were coasting home to victory and the title with two early goals.

But where do they rank among the Premier League's most celebrated sides? Some of the best we have ever seen in this country?

Sitting deep and allowing the relegation certainties push forward with the ball was not the type of football expected following United's title-halting comeback against Manchester City last week, but this is not the first time Mourinho has suffered. I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well.

"You win titles with consistency at every level, not just the performance level but the mental level and the day by day". The first half was a awful advert for the English top-flight.

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

Liverpool boss Klopp hails Alexander-Arnold performance for Bournemouth win
Klopp believes personal accolades for the 25-year-old should therefore translate into success for Liverpool this term. And neither of his predecessors achieved that mark in as few as the 45 games it has taken Salah to do so.

After their limp Champions League exit against Liverpool, a City collapse against Tottenham would have had the critics carping that Guardiola has no Plan B when things go wrong.

Also it absolutely was attained by playing a brand of football that has got the purists purring all season with City racking up 93 aims thus significantly and on path to top the 100-point barrier.

"These guys are fantastic, awesome - they are incredible".

Having loudly trumpeted his arrival at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho lived up the "special one" hype in his first season in England.

United was too narrow and predictable, with wide players Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata constantly cutting inside and leaving the midfield congested.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney formed a lethal attacking trio, with Ronaldo virtually unstoppable as he scored 31 league goals en route to winning the Ballon d'Or.

I know them [my players], I smell, I have a lot of experience and that's not me because I won eight titles and I'm not in the moon because I won against Manchester City - a match that is only three points.
