Silva reflects on 'most special' City title after premature birth of son

It was a timely reminder of how good he's been, how impressively important he's been to this title win, especially as talk grows that Mo Salah might actually be the campaign's outstanding performer. Manchester City has won 28. For good measure, they also passed and touched the ball more.

Manchester United hold the current record of Premier League winning margin of 18 points and City and breach this feat too. It is hard to speak about Manchester City for me, but what Pep Guardiola has done is awesome; to win the title with the football he plays is great. Guardiola had planned a day of golf with his son Marius on Sunday, so the Spaniard might have learned of his first Premier League while on the course.

I'm buzzing, over the moon, so happy and proud to be able to share this with all of our fans, everybody who's been there to support us especially in this last week as many know it's been very hard but at the same time we've bounced back, we're champions now and thank you to all of you, It's an incredible season. But Jose Mourinho's men still ended up handing the trophy to City with a lacklustre display against bottom of the table Albion, who had won only three times in the league this season before this weekend.

"It is the same feeling as the first time, you can't describe it", Kompany said.

The England global scored one against Spurs and won a penalty in a man-of-the-match display, but missed two glaring chances and his prowess in front of goal has always been his weakness.

'I suppose my teammates will roll their eyes, but i want to see their reaction. I have never been able to retain a title and I want to see if this team has got it to carry on and be even more successful.

Merson says Kane has advantage over Salah in Golden Boot race
Of course I can not lie - it is in my mind. "Harry's a very honest person, he's not going to lie about this situation". Kane, however, has an extra game over Salah as Spurs have played 32 matches while Liverpool have played 33.


While there has always been an inevitability about Manchester City's fifth top-tier league title in English football, even manager Pep Guardiola probably never envisaged the ease with which it would ultimately be achieved.

Speaking after the win over Tottenham, Guardiola admitted winning the title in England would be one of the greatest achievements of his glittering career.

Soon after the ADUG takeover, club's chief executive Garry Cook was quoted saying "China and India are gagging for football content to watch and we're going to tell them that City is their content". That's the reason why they were champions.

I don't know if I was the first or if I was the second or the third, but I congratulated them face-to-face when I had the chance to do it.

Thierry Henry: I am not surprised with what Pep has done in this league and past year, I was one of the people saying stop having a go at the man because that's how he plays.
