Man City crowned Premier League champions

Sterling can be one of the best in the world- Guardiola

Sterling can be one of the best in the world- Guardiola

Manchester City's Spanish manager Pep Guardiola shouts instructions to his players from the touchline during the English Premier League football match between Manchester City and Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on April 7, 2018.

"But you go into the game and you think: 'Well, West Brom are a good team".

Guardiola's men were on course to drop points in two of their opening three games until Sterling's 97th-minute victor at Bournemouth back in August kicked off an 18-match winning run in the league.

Five wins from five would give them 103 points - eclipsing Chelsea's record of 95 back in the 2004/05 season.

In order to prevent City from being crowned champions for a few more days, United had to avoid defeat against bottom club Albion at Old Trafford.

Given the way they have demolished all challengers in the league, it was apparent months ago that it was only a matter of when rather than if City would take the title.

Since Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan took ownership of the club in 2008, City has won seven trophies, adding an FA Cup, two League Cups and an FA Community Shield to their league titles.

Spurs officially rule Leonard (quad) out for Game 1
There's been a lot of speculation circulating around Kawhi Leonard , his injury, and his relationship with the San Antonio Spurs . But Curry has not participated in any formal practices, but he spent time with the team on Thursday during its film session.

They were unbeaten in the Premier League until January 14, when Liverpool ended that unbelievable run at Anfield.

City's captain Vincent Kompany told Sky Sports: "You can't describe the feeling".

Kompany and co. have the opportunity to secure the highest number of wins, points and goals scored in a Premier League season.

By winning the title with five matches remaining, they have equalled the English top-flight record (Manchester United in 1907/1908 and 2000/2001, and Everton in 1984/1985 all won the top-flight title with five games to spare). My favourite title is still the first one - it was special. Thoroughly deserved and won with a style of football that is truly joyous to watch.

"This one differs in that we were consistent the whole season and we were able to play at the level we're expected to perform at". There was no fluidity. It can set top marks for most goals (103, 2009-10 Chelsea) and most wins (30, 2016-17 Chelsea).

"I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said. Eight titles. Three Premier League. I know how to win.

After Sterling missed another fine chance, the England attacker finally got on the scoresheet in the 72nd minute when he rammed home from close range after Jesus' shot was parried to put the champagne firmly on ice.
