Kevin De Bruyne tells Manchester City to turn focus to Champions League

Sevilla's French defender Clement Lenglet vies with Bayern Munich's Polish forward Robert Lewandowski during the UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg football match between

Their latest triumph has come with plenty to spare after West Brom's win at Manchester United on Sunday ensured the job was completed with five matches remaining.

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

Since City's Abu-Dhabi owners started pouring in hundreds of millions to the club's coffers a decade ago, Manuel Pellegrini and Roberto Mancini have also delivered titles but never sustained success.

Manchester City players made sure they enjoyed their maiden Premier League title win under Pep Guardiola in a night of joyous celebrations that began in a quiet village pub. "I'm just happy to bring that to pass and hopefully I can carry on".

"We've won the league for you, Man City, Man City", West Brom's fans chanted after the final whistle.

Perhaps the only major negative of City's season was our defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-final. I was unfortunate enough to play against that quality United side that dominated in the '90s, but this side would have beaten them - that's how good they are.

Guardiola's team could still win the league by a record margin, with a record points haul (now on 87), having won more games (28) and scored more goals (93) than any team before them. "Premier League Champions 17/18", City posted on their official Twitter account.

Guardiola, who failed to land a trophy in his first season in charge at The Etihad, opened his account by winning the League Cup in February against Arsenal.

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated", Mourinho told Sky Sports. It's not that if you're a billionaire, you're going...

At the time, Forman was in Paris, in negotiations for Taking Off , a USA production about the youth protest movement. The Czech-born director is survived by his wife Martina and his four children, Peter, Matej, Andrew, and James.

Premier League talking points
City is 13 points clear at the top with six matches to play and could be confirmed as champion this weekend. However, Spurs will most certainly not just lie down and let them take it on their watch.

The management shakeup included appointing an employee representative, Gunnar Kilian , as chief human resources manager. Porsche sports vehicle division head Oliver Blume was promoted to the top management body of the entire group.

"It shows how football is in Manchester".

While the players were caught out by United's surprise loss, one company were more than ready for it. "It's a privilege to be a part of this team".

Guardiola's intensity can provoke burnout in himself and his players.

City manager Pep Guardiola is the first Spaniard to win the English title.

"The moment he can (improve) his average chances to score a goal, he will become one of the best players in the world", Guardiola said after the Saturday evening kick-off.

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him. "He has been able to transfer to the team that hunger and desire to never be satisfied".

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager has since been showered in praise, and deservedly so as he stamped his name in the history books as the first Spanish gaffer to finish top of England's top-flight.

City's title is the 24th trophy of his glittering career.

De Bruyne said the strategic policy of investing in young talent like Ederson, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus had paid off and enabled City to build for long-term success.
