After the drama of the derby last week, Manchester United completely folded in half against bottom of the league West Brom on Sunday afternoon, leaving Manchester City the most unexpectedly expected Premier League champions since football began in 1992.

Pep Guardiola believes that Manchester City will grow in stature after he secured his first Premier League title with the club.

City, who rebounded from the United loss and a European exit at the hands of Liverpool by beating Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, have 87 points with five games left.

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.

"To make 18 wins in a row you have to be mentally strong and [against Tottenham] they again showed me how strong they are and this is important to help build up this club a little bit higher", he told a news conference after their 3-1 victory over Spurs.

It reflected City's specialness, just as the records of this season should.

Apparently club superstars like Claudio Bravo and Phil Foden would be playing in City's final game of the season as well. Manchester City has won 28.

Mourinho claimed afterwards that he had not been happy after the City result because he knew they would win the league regardless and he accused some of his players of getting carried away.

At the heart of those statistics was De Bruyne, who since the start of the 2015-16 campaign has provided more assists than any other player in the top five European leagues. They are able to win their games - all six.

"It would be one of the best three seasons I have ever had as a player and as a manager".

Silva has been a key figure for City for much of the season, putting in some inspirational performances that have seen him nominated for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinhosaid: "I think we were deservedly punished".

It was a far cry from his trophy-less first season with City and Kompany said Guardiola's tenacious attitude led them to the summit. The Citizens have been widely praised, with many calling them the best team in Europe this season. 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.
