Manchester City’s title Triumph in Statistics [Stats] and Pep encourage his Players to Enjoy the moment
  • Manchester City have lifted their seventh Premier League title, with only Manchester United (13) winning more titles in the Premier League era.
  • In the history of the English top-flight since 1888, only three teams have won more titles than Manchester City’s nine. Their two pre-Premier League titles came in 1936-37 and 1967-68.
  • Manchester City have now won the Premier League title in seven of the last 12 seasons and won it in five of the last six campaigns. They are the third team to win a top-flight title in five out of six seasons, along with Liverpool (1979, 1980, 1982, 1983, 1984) and Man Utd (1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001).
  • Pep Guardiola is only the sixth man to win as many as five English top-flight titles, while only Alex Ferguson (13) has ever won more Premier League titles than the Spaniard.
  • Guardiola has won the title in 11 of his 14 seasons as a top-flight manager across spells in charge of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City. He has won three consecutive league titles with each of those clubs.

“I have been so demanding in this period,” Guardiola said.  “We lift the trophy so to think of going to Brighton is so exhausting. We know how difficult they are.

“The players have to celebrate otherwise it makes no sense. We will arrive with time to rest mentally for the two finals against United and Inter.

“We have to play two more games. I said enjoy it but be careful because we will destruct what we have done in these competitions.

“Now I have the feeling that all of us are a little bit tired because it’s been a long season. Now it’s the tendency to think it’s done.

“Still we have tough game at Brighton and Brentford, hopefully it can pass quick and then we have seven days to prepare United and Inter.”

Guardiola also said there was no need to play down the significance of playing in a Champions League final for the second time in three years.

“The feeling I have is we win five Premier Leagues and now we have the Champions League too,” he added.

“Sometimes it can be unfair for the fact you have to win the Champions League to give value to what you have you done.

“When I came here people didn’t say you have to win the Champions League but I know it is not complete if we don’t win the Champions League.

“Playing with this pressure is so nice. If we are not able to do it, sooner or later we will do it. We are there so we have to try.”
