Manchester City crowned Premier League champions

Mourinho wants strong Man United finish to secure second place

Carrick will know that getting the best out of Paul Pogba will be one of his most important roles as a member of United's coaching staff in years to come.

He would have been as surprised as everyone else that the title, seemingly a foregone conclusion for months, was rubber-stamped in such unusual circumstances.

City did not lose a game until January - against Liverpool - and drew just twice until that memorable clash at Anfield, while smashing five past Liverpool at the Etihad early in the season, as they stunned opposition, supporters and critics alike with their performances.

"My team-mates will roll their eyes as I want to see the reaction from us next season as I've never been able to retain a title".

Manchester City's Raheem Sterling, second from right, celebrates with team mates after scoring his sides third goal during the English Premier League soccer match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City at Wembley stadium in London, England, Saturday, April 14, 2018.

Few - including Guardiola - expected it to happen on Sunday.

And despite battling it out at the top of the Premier League these days, it is clear the Belgian is anxious about the plight of his former side, who are all-but confirmed to be playing Championship football next season.

Ian Somerhalder To Star In Netflix Series V-Wars
William Laurin and Glenn Davis, creators of the Canadian crime drama 1-800-Missing, will serve as showrunners for the series. Ian Somerhalder has locked down his next role after his hit television series The Vampire Diaries ended its run in 2017.

Not only that but he did it with five games remaining, equalling the English top-flight record of United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

City's first big test against a top-six rival followed the victory against Bournemouth and it was to give another huge confidence boost to a young team.

"Unbelievable season for us", said midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, perhaps City's standout player over the past eight months.

In a mini-league with four of the best the division historically has to offer, it's time to take a look at how the 2017/18 champions, who are on course to break numerous records, would fare home and away.

In the end, none of them needed to do anything for Manchester City to be crowned Premier League champion.

"Forty points was the target at the start of the season and hopefully we've done enough now to secure our Premier League status", Ritchie told Sky Sports. "You can't describe it".

"You can't take them for granted - I've been lucky to win three but there have been so many I've missed as well", said Kompany.
