Even more alarming for their rivals, though, after Manchester United's 1-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday sealed City's triumph is that Pep Guardiola's latest fabulous creation may only be at the dawn of a potential new dynasty.

On Saturday: Premier League: Tottenham 1 (Eriksen 42) lost to Manchester City 3 (Jesus 22, Gundogan 25-pen, Sterling 72); Liverpool 3 (Mane 7, Salah 69, Firmino 90) bt Bournemouth 0; Newcastle 2 (Ayoze Perez 29, Ritchie 68) Arsenal 1 (Lacazette 14).

The man most often picked out by Guardiola himself as the heartbeat of this City side, Kevin De Bruyne looks set to battle with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah for the Premier League player of the year awards.

"We've got Reds in the family, we've got Blues in the family".

"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". When you say: "Pep, what you have done in Barcelona or Bayern Munich is it possible to do that without those big players?"

"It's been a pleasure to play with this team and be part of everything we've achieved this season".

"It's not just two games, it's about the course of the season and the quality football that City have played game after game".

Manchester City were crowned Premier League title winners on Sunday evening, and within an hour the club was selling "Champions" merchandise online.

The Premier League's record points tally of 95, set by Chelsea in 2004-05, is within City's reach if they can take nine from their last fixtures.

"If I had met him when I was 20 years old, I would have improved so much", Kompany said. That would be foolhardy, especially if they can finish the season so strongly that they score more goals and earn more points than anyone has managed in its 26-year history.

He will be officially presented the trophy at the Etihad after what will be City's penultimate home game of the season. "It's good for the Premier League as well".

"My third league but this one is the most special", he wrote on his official Twitter account.

Manchester United now hold the record for the biggest winning margin with 18 points.

Kompany was roared on as he spoke, with fans and players breaking into the "championes" chant when their skipper had stopped speaking.
