Johannesburg: Manchester have won the Premier League title with five games left, and they do not have win single one of them, after their neighbours Manchester crashed to an unlikely defeat to West Brom.
Pep Guardiola and his team have demonstrated resilience and fighting spirit when they played Tottenham at Wembley stadium where they won 3-1 which put City at 87 points to win the 2017/2018 premier league.
The team captain Belgian born Vincent Kompany has challenged his Manchester City team-mates to retain their Premier League title after Manchester United’s shock defeat to bottom side, West Brom,confirmed Pep Guardiola’s men as champion.
Vincet Kompany continued by stating that “ today I’m happy and I suppose my team- mates will roll their eyes a little bit but I kind of want to see what the reaction is going to be to be now” .
The city captain also added that he never retained the title and he will want to see if his team has got the hunger to retain it and be more successful.
While Pep Guardiola, who said on Saturday he would be playing golf rather than watching the match , can now add a Premier League winner’s medal to those he claimed in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich and La Liga with Barcelona. City players posted celebratory messages on Twitter with Kevin De Bruyne writing: “Unbelievable season for us.Very happy to call us champions this year,”
Some argue that Pep Guardiola has achieved his first mission to win the premier league and now he has to defend, also win the champions where he was booted out by Liverpool on the quarter final.
