With the best coach in the world, a sprinkling of the best players money can buy, including some from Africa, Manchester City on Sunday won the English Premier League, ironically without kicking a ball.

"You can't take it for granted", he told Sky Sports on Sunday.

Guardiola also praised his young players - with Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus scoring crucial goals - and he believes they will learn from their Champions League disappointment.

"Winning the Premier League goes to become certainly one of the 3 seasons that that are better I have ever had as a supervisor and as a new player".

City's all-time leading goal-scorer knows a thing or two about final days of the season having secured the title on the last day of the 2011/12 campaign against QPR and 2013/14 against West Ham.

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. At the moment, fifth is a good spot for them, but they have a chance to shoot up the table come May.

Mourinho was hardly effusive in his praise when asked about City's success, but did concede they deserved to be champions.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said.

It is Abu Dhabi-owned City's third title in seven seasons and their first since former boss Manuel Pellegrini achieved the feat in 2013-14. Only Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho have managed to do that so far and in recent years follow ups have proved very hard.

The 47-year-old Catalan is a special breed amongst modern-day managers because of the specifics of his preparation and how he wants his teams to play.

With 20 minutes remaining at St. Mary's on Saturday, Southampton looked set to move out of the bottom three thanks to a first home league win since November.
