Kompany embraces manager Pep Guardiola after victory over Spurs

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.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany was proud of the way his side responded against Tottenham to overcome a "tough week" and edge closer to the Premier League title.

"I've never been able to retain a title, I want to see if this team has got it to carry on and be more successful".

In his second season in charge, Guardiola, aided by the vast financial backing of City´s Abu Dhabi-based owners, has created a sublime team that helped him become the first Spanish coach to win the English top-flight title.

Word quickly got around through social media and City fans queued outside a venue still advertising United's televised clash with the Baggies in a bid to join fellow supporters inside, where the players were seen belting out Oasis' Wonderwall and being serenaded by supporters expressing their delight and gratitude.

"It differs because we were consistent the whole season, that level expected of us".

As for Spurs, boss Mauricio Pochettino has made a total of four alterations to his team, with the most notable switch seeing Erik Lamela replace Son Heung-min.

A family spokesman says former first lady Barbara Bush is in "failing health" and won't seek additional medical treatment . After he returned on leave, she dropped out of Smith College, and the two married in January 1945.


No club has won back-to-back Premier League titles since United claimed three in a row from 2006 to 2009, and the previous three champions suffered post-title slumps. "When I was 20 I would have been a flawless player for him", he said.

"One thing he [Guardiola] has been able to transfer is that hunger and desire to never be satisfied", said Kompany. "We want to stay humble about the fact that it's not a dynasty.it's one title and there is still so much work to be done before the full potential is unlocked". I think there was a period of adaptation that was needed, for him and us.

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning", he said.

"As (West Brom) got stuck into the game you got the feeling "something could happen here", and a set-piece, a wonderful goal from Rodriguez - thank you! - it's a great feeling".

He added: "It just shows how football is lived in Manchester".

"Today was a day for the Blues - there have been many days for the Reds before, and ultimately it's banter. [Carla's dad] is a better loser than victor!"
