Vincent Kompany delivers epic victory speech to Manchester City fans and players

Only two other players have captained more Premier League title winners - Chelsea's John Terry (five titles) and Manchester United's former captain Roy Keane (four).

After finishing third in his first season in charge, Pep Guardiola made a few tweaks to his Manchester City squad and delivered a dominant second campaign. Instead, some players had even left the country after being given a couple of days off by Guardiola.

Tottenham are fourth in the standings on 67 points and are unbeaten in their last 14 league games.

Guardiola's side missed the chance to seal the title when they lost 3-2 at home to bitter rivals United last week, either side of two Champions League quarter-final defeats to Liverpool, and the Spaniard believes his side could still be vulnerable. But in one week we have lost three games.

The England global is City's second-highest scorer behind Sergio Aguero but his goals have also come at some key moments on their road to the title.

"That is why he has to work harder but if he is able to learn, he is going to win important Premier Leagues and help his confidence".

Silva had to take time away from City earlier this season to spend time with his family and new-born son Mateo.

Jose Mourinho applauded Manchester City's Premier League title success, but lambasted Manchester United after West Bromwich Albion's shock 1-0 win on Sunday.

"It's the same feeling as the first time", the 32-year-old Belgium worldwide, who unlike his manager did watch the game, told Sky Sports.

"It shows what football is in Manchester".

It is ironic that United came back from 2-0 down against City themselves last weekend to win 3-2 and delay City's party, only to surrender so tamely on home soil.

While Pep Guardiola was busy playing golf and claimed he wasn't going to watch United's match against West Brom, Vincent Kompany was seen watching - and celebrating - the Baggies' win.

"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. Firstly for him, coming to this league for the first time, and then we had to take on all this information he was giving to us.

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club". I think with my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency.

"Okay, Sergio [Aguero] is a genius, a top player but about 30-years-old".
