Pep Guardiola talks up Manchester City's achievements in the Premier League this season and insists that it is a tougher competition to win than the Champions League. Ross Dyer and Steve Nicol break down Manchester City's win over Tottenham at Wembley, which brought Man City's three-match losing run to a halt.
"[It's] more hard", he told a news conference.
Only Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85) have ever wrapped up the title with as many games remaining, while Guardiola has also become the first Spanish coach to win the English top-flight title.
The Catalan headed for Sandiway Golf Club in Cheshire fully expecting United to collect maximum points against the league's bottom club, but Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute goal sealed a surprise result on Sunday. In the league every game you have to stay there. They've been by far the best team in the league.
"He missed two clear, clear chances against United".
"Just one more time, come on City!"
"We didn't take our first chance, so hopefully we can take the second chance to celebrate with our fans next week", Guardiola said.
"I am so so glad to be here and be part of the club".
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: "I knew that sooner or later they would be champions and if I was in their position I would be very upset if somebody said that they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Bromwich Albion".
The 32-year-old Silva's game has been elevated again in this free-flowing City side, with his outstanding eye for a pass and unshakeable control in possession key to Guardiola's system.
Asked if he will check the score, he said: "I have a golf game with my son - bogey, double bogey, birdie".
"Before the derby it was in our hands". "It is every three days for our side and everybody else".
"After that, in a competition like the Champions League, with decisions and good opponents happen in both games we can not complete closely against Liverpool but for the rest of the season, even the game against Wigan with 10 against 11 we were outstanding".
