Silva reflects on 'most special' City title after premature birth of son

Manchester City secured their first Premier League title in four years on Sunday as rivals Manchester United slipped to a shock 1-0 defeat to relegation favourites West Brom at Old Trafford.

"It's the same feeling as the first time", Kompany said, quoted by the Mirror.

He said: "I think winning at Stamford Bridge gave us the confidence that we could do it".

Based on three points for a win, Manchester City's current points tally of 87 is the most by any side in English top-flight league history after 33 games of a season.

Failing to secure the title against Manchester United would have been damaging for morale, and undoubtedly was a missed opportunity to give their fans a special day, but in the bigger picture was of little outcome - and a rotated first eleven, missing their player of the season, reflected that. You want to take that forward into next season and try to put things right that maybe haven't gone so well this season and improve upon results in games.

"Attackers are individuals and defensive players feel more part of a team".

It was always a matter of when rather than if City would be champions after they led the way for most of the season. "I have won titles".

Fueled by the majestic form of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, City set a new Premier League record earlier this season by winning 18 successive matches.

Kompany has already called on City to "unlock their full potential" and be successful for years to come following confirmation of their title.

Kompany also touched on the impact that their manager has had on the squad.

"We all believed in it, otherwise it wouldn't happen".

Guardiola is not one to compromise on his principles but it is clear his tactics need to change in the latter stages of the Champions League, because his teams are getting picked off too easily.

Seven trophies have been won since Abu Dhabi United Group's takeover in 2008, but the one trophy they covet above all continues to elude them. I'm sure they are differences to how we play today compared to Bayern and Barcelona, we survive and live by the strength of the team.

Even selecting just one of Sir Alex Ferguson's vintages to compare this City with is a fiendishly tough task in itself.
