Jose Mourinho says 'masters of complication' Manchester United deserved to be punished

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola celebrates his side's win on Sunday

Sterling put in an impressive display as City breezed past Tottenham 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday in what turned out to be a Premier League title-clinching win following Manchester United's surprise defeat to West Brom on Sunday. In his eight seasons with City, Silva has only once been named the Premier League's player of the month, and only once made the team of the year.

"This season has been incredible and the football we've played has been the best I've been involved with while at the Club". Ferguson's last United triumph in 2012-13 was by 11 points from the then champions City; the following season, under new management, they finished seventh.

Manchester City players were not expecting Jose Mourinho's men to lose at home to West Brom and Kompany watched the game with his family, rather than with his team-mates.

Manchester United hold the current record of Premier League winning margin of 18 points and City and breach this feat too. "One of the things we have to improve is our consistency". Two league defeats all season and City have cruised to their Premier League triumph - they are now an unreachable 16 points ahead of second place United with five games still to go.

It's their first Premier League win under Guardiola, and given the plans implemented this season, you sense it won't be the last time they finish top of the pile under him.

Adam Bate, Sky Sports: "Manchester City's collective effort has put them miles ahead of the rest and secured the title with five games to spare".

City chief executive Ferran Soriano said: "Winning the Premier League again is a great honour for Manchester City".

Here's what pundits, managers and players have said after City won the league...

The Brazilian's long-range passing to launch City on the counter-attack and beat any high press employed by opponents has been a regular feature of the season, adding another weapon to City's frightening attacking arsenal.

Henry, who played under Guardiola in a successful stint at Barcelona, gave his verdict on the key areas of the manager's thinking this season...
