Vincent Kompany hails Manchester City's title-winners - before setting sights on retaining trophy next season

City are well on course to break the record for most points and goals, earning comparisons with the greatest ever teams in the Premier League era. I'm buzzing, over the moon, so happy and proud to be able to share this with all of our fans, everybody who's been there to support us especially in this last week as many know it's been very hard but at the same time we've bounced back, we're champions now and thank you to all of you, It's an incredible season.

I think the biggest threat in the near future is going on to win the league again, and the fact that other teams are improving. "The thought appalled me".

City will surely only get better next season.

So can Pep Guardiola's side buck the trend next year?

"My 3rd league but this one is the most special".

De Bruyne hopes that Guardiola can strengthen the squad.

"Maybe it (the Champions League quarter-final exit to Liverpool) was a good lesson for the club for next season", he added.

The 32-year-old then popped down to the local pub where he met up with team-mates Bernardo Silva, John Stones, Fabian Delph and Kyle Walker. But in one week we have lost three games. The Champions League It's been almost seven years since Guardiola last won European football's greatest prize, too long a wait for a coach supposedly at the top of his profession. He won three league titles with Barcelona and twice lifted the Champions League trophy during his Camp Nou reign. It is one title. Whether they deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Manchester United's 1999 treble winners or the 2004 Arsenal "Invincibles" is up for debate.

But City, who will stage a title party when they host Swansea on Sunday, have a chance to underline their credentials over their last five matches.

Aguero, who joined City in 2011, became City's record goalscorer earlier in the campaign and now has 199 strikes for the club.

Sterling's remarkable improvement, in particular, has been eye-catching with 17 goals and 12 assists in 29 games in the league, a superior return from the 13 goals and as many assists in his first two seasons in a Citizen shirt.

The side this season have been outstanding, winning 28 of their 33 league games so far and losing just two. Guardiola's players will focus on those targets once they have recovered from a boisterous evening of celebrations in Manchester.

City's title win came at a rather unsurprising time.

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him.

"The desire to never be satisfied has transferred to the team", he said.
