Kompany challenges Man City to 'unlock full potential' after title win

They have swept all before them in the Premier League this season, confirmed as champions with five games still to play, and Pep Guardiola will be given fortunes to spend as he sets his sights even higher. "It is the same feeling as the first time, you can't describe it", Kompany said.

City's top priority in the close-season will be securing the services of former Bayern Munich and Barcelona chief Guardiola, who also led his team to League Cup glory in February, for longer than the one year remaining on his contract.

I think the biggest threat in the near future is going on to win the league again, and the fact that other teams are improving.

"You can't take it for granted". I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well.

'I suppose my teammates will roll their eyes, but i want to see their reaction. I have never been able to retain a title and I want to see if this team has got it to carry on and be even more successful.

Burnley boss, Sean Dyche said it best: "It's like having Ronald Koeman in goal. I'm just happy to bring that to pass and hopefully I can carry on". Only Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho have managed to do that so far and in recent years follow ups have proved very hard.

Pep Guardiola is the first Spanish manager to win the English Premier League.

Rippon, Nagasu, Anderson and Mazdzer all competed for Team USA at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Fellow dancer Artem Chigvintsev said he expects it to be an especially competitive season.

It's not just two games, it's about the course of the season and the quality football that City have played game after game.

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him.

'It's been a pleasure to play with this team and be part of everything we've achieved this season. They've been by far the best team in the league.

City had moved to the brink of glory with victory at Tottenham on Saturday but the crowning moment came in unexpected circumstances as Jay Rodriguez headed the bottom side to a 1-0 win at Old Trafford. A testament to the incredible professional that he is; despite his troubles off the pitch Silva was without doubt one of his side's best players all season. We have five or six teams who are all able to win the league and that makes it incredibly hard.

I think that's where his levels of management are above everyone else's, certainly this season.

Vinny sounds determined to buck the trend of champions underachieving the year after, something City have had happen to them twice, and wants the Blues to be ready for another assault on the title next season.
