Man City boss Guardiola says Premier League title 'toughest' he's won

Man City boss Guardiola says Premier League title 'toughest' he's won

Manchester City retained the Premier League trophy after coming from behind to beat Brighton 4-1 and see off Liverpool's relentless challenge on the final day of the season on Sunday.

Ten minutes later and things got even worse for Pep Guardiola's side when veteran Glenn Murray, whose goal ended Arsenal's hopes of Champions League football, nearly put a huge dent in City's title charge by heading in to open the scoring. "We gave everything. We got 97 points".

"It was the most hard one because of the quality of Liverpool".

I'm sure they will want someone in place as quickly as possible as the summer recruitment plans will have already started.

"It's a very special season, a better season than I played with my team [Borussia Dortmund] when we were champions in Germany".

"It means a lot". Liverpool will maintain and so we have to be better.

Big Rafa Benitez was put in charge of Newcastle United to help save them from relegation at a time when finances were low and the owner situation was tumultuous at best.

"We only lost one game all season", striker Mohamed Salah said.

"I think last season, Ciy raised the standard higher". To win the title we had to win 14 games in a row - we knew for the last three months that we couldn't drop any points.

Wellings said it was the unexpected 4-0 victory last week against Barcelona that raised people's hopes that Liverpool would be able to win the Premier League title.

After City dominated the opening exchanges, they were hit with a sucker punch on 26 minutes as Glenn Murray headed home from a corner to put the Seagulls ahead.

But when Riyad Mahrez drove an unstoppable shot past Brighton keeper Mathew Ryan's despairing dive just past the hour, City's fans could finally get the party started.

Manchester City's Premier League dominance has been confirmed.

Bernardo Silva had a good chance to settle the nerves early on but he was blocked in the area as he burst through on goal.

Sunday's victory takes City's total tally of trophies to six.

Centreback Laporte rose high to head City into the lead from a 38th minute corner and they held their 2-1 advantage at halftime.

Brighton centre back Lewis Dunk reminded City of the precariousness of the situation with a dipping free kick that keeper Ederson did well to turn over on the stroke of halftime.

Equally important, an English team hasn't won the Champions League since 2012 when Chelsea beat Bayern, and Manchester City has never claimed the Champions League title.

"The boys pushed themselves to new levels, which I love, and that development and improvement is not finished".
