Man City's record-breaking season reveals how dominant their title win was

Jay Rodriguez celebrates after scoring the winner against Manchester

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

"I trust in my work", he said.

After a mixed first season in England, Guardiola faced questions about whether his methods were a good fit for the Premier League.

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. I know how to win and I believe in myself. You don't win titles with inconsistency. A 16-point lead with five games to play and 93 goals scored represents an emphatic response, not that any doubts ever existed inside the City dressing room.

"That doesn't make me feel super happy and in my opinion affected for sure some of the people that was too happy".

But Jay Rodriguez's 73rd minute header gave West Brom a stunning victory after they arrived at Old Trafford having lost nine of their previous 10 games.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany on Sky Sports: We were consistent the whole season and were able to play at the level we were expected to perform at. Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn.

Their dominance of the league, with 28 wins and just two defeats bear that out, but the circumstances in which they have been handed the title were surprising. "When we had the ball, we wanted to run, dribble and everything was complicated", he said.

"I have won titles, I would not be happy if someone said the title was won if someone loses a match".

"I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulate them face to face when I had the chance", Mourinho said. It is hard to speak about Manchester City for me, but what Pep Guardiola has done is unbelievable; to win the title with the football he plays is great.

United gifting City the title by losing to West Brom came just a week on from them delaying their rivals' celebrations.

Obviously, Pogba isn't exactly going to score a brace and bag the Man of the Match award every week, but he looked unrecognisable from the player who dominated the champions.
