Pep Guardiola: 'Premier League tougher to win than Champions League'

Share

No club has won back-to-back Premier League titles since United claimed three in a row from 2006 to 2009, and the previous three champions suffered post-title slumps.

"You can not imagine", Guardiola said. The amount of goals, chances and points, to do that in the Premier League, with the contenders we have, is because the players are so good.

Only Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85) have ever wrapped up the title with as many games remaining, while Guardiola has also become the first Spanish coach to win the English top-flight title.

In addition, based on three points for a win, City's now tally is the most by any side after 33 games of an English top-flight campaign.

"He has been one of the three mainstay players in City's team in what has been a very impressive season".

This time they have secured the title with five games to spare after a season in which they have never been challenged, losing just twice and scoring 93 goals thus far. "In other times we almost threw it away".

"As much as I'm going to celebrate today, I'm going to see if any of the lads are still up for it on Wednesday for us to have a good training session and build up to the next games as well".

They've now won three of the last seven PL titles available. It will be more complicated but for the club, the players, all the departments in the club, the people can believe we are good: Manchester City is a good club.

'We have to try, ' said Guardiola.
