Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions after Manchester United's surprising home defeat to West Brom on Sunday.

Vincent Kompany delivered an emotionally charged speech to Manchester City fans and players after the club's title triumph.

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 flawless style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.

Second-place United are now 16 points behind Pep Guardiola's side with only five games left to pay.

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.

"That's the reason why they were champions and probably because I won eight championships I was not in the moon [sic] with the victory against them [last week] because that doesn't make me feel super happy". Previous times, we almost threw it away and that was a feature of every season we won it.

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.

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.

Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic on Sky Sports: They deserve the title, they played really good football for the whole year. They started to do it with such an emphatic win over Spurs, but can now take it further by eroding so many records. They lost only two matches because they were the best team.

Henceforth, City would eye surpassing Chelsea's record 95 points accumulated in a single season.

"The first one was special but this one is perhaps the one I'm most proud of". There have been a lot more good days for the Red side but today it is for the Blue.

"The moment he can (improve) his average chances to score a goal, he will become one of the best players in the world", Guardiola said after the Saturday evening kick-off.

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him.
