Vincent Kompany says he is proud of everyone at Manchester City after they clinched the Premier League title with five games remaining. Combining speed, guile, power and more speed, it has blown away opponents and redefined what anyone thought was possible in the English game.
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.

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in ideal style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.

Sergio Aguero became the all-time top scorer for Manchester City with 199 goals.
City has scored 93 so far. "City were the best team, sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league", Mourinho said. That gave us [confidence], against the last champions we are able to go there and played the way we played.
"It's the same feeling as the first time", the 32-year-old Belgium global, who unlike his manager did watch the game, told Sky Sports.

City were confirmed champions on Sunday, after Manchester United lost 1-0 at home to West Brom.

City's title win is the third of Kompany's 10-year Etihad career. I think with my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency. Firstly for him, coming to this league for the first time, and then we had to take on all this information he was giving to us.
"It's more complicated. But I think for the club, not just the players, all the departments in the club can believe".
