Premier League title can help Man City grow in stature - Pep Guardiola

Guardiola was sent to the stands for arguing with the referee as the half-time whistle blew

City tied the record for earliest date of sealing the Premier League title, sharing the mark with the 2001 United squad.

Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday as Manchester United crashed to a shock 1-0 defeat against West Bromwich Albion.

By completing the job after 33 games, City have emulated the achievement of United, who secured the crown with the same number of matches to spare in 2001.

It is City's third title in seven seasons and a first under the Spaniard in his second campaign in charge.

"The first time you win it, you think you'll win all of them", said Kompany.

With 28 league victories so far, City need three more wins to top Chelsea's record of 30 Premier League wins in a season.

Former Manchester City defender Andy Hinchcliffe on Sky Sports: They have been the dominant force this season and, with the style in which they play, they are the best side the Premier League I have seen.

But Guardiola believes the 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge was a pivotal moment when Kevin De Bruyne's goal saw them pick up a deserved three points after dominating against the defending champions.

While it may be premature to place City in that rarified air, they could make a case by breaking the Premier League points record of 95 set by Chelsea in 2004-05. Some pundits are already ranking City - who at one stage this season won a record 18 successive league games - alongside Manchester United's 1999 treble winners and the 2003-04 Arsenal "Invincibles".

Although the West Brom board are believed to want somebody with more experience, Moore certainly did his chances of becoming the next full-time boss no harm, even if avoiding relegation looks a lost cause.

"We are able to win two games". It was always a matter of when rather than if City would be champions after they led the way for most of the season.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinhosaid: "I think we were deservedly punished". There have been a lot more good days for the Red side but today it is for the Blue.

But United's loss to bottom-placed West Brom probably caught out the club and the players.

"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". "The Premier League is the constant - every day, every day, every day - and we were there every day".
