Premier League on Betfair: Man City confirmed as champions after Baggies shock United

Only two other players have captained more Premier League title winners - Chelsea's John Terry (five titles) and Manchester United's former captain Roy Keane (four). Combining speed, guile, power and more speed, it has blown away opponents and redefined what anyone thought was possible in the English game.

Instead of City likely clinching the title at home to Swansea next weekend, that game at Etihad Stadium will now be a party and a celebration of one of the Premier League's finest teams which could yet break a slew of records by the end of the season. How about that taxi driver who isn't EVEN LOOKING at where he's going despite the fact that there are literally THOUSANDS of people in that street.

The Premier League's record points tally of 95, set by Chelsea in 2004-05, is within City's reach if they can take nine from their last fixtures.

On Saturday: Premier League: Tottenham 1 (Eriksen 42) lost to Manchester City 3 (Jesus 22, Gundogan 25-pen, Sterling 72); Liverpool 3 (Mane 7, Salah 69, Firmino 90) bt Bournemouth 0; Newcastle 2 (Ayoze Perez 29, Ritchie 68) Arsenal 1 (Lacazette 14).

The England global scored one against Spurs and won a penalty in a man-of-the-match display, but missed two glaring chances and his prowess in front of goal has always been his weakness.

The 2012 title win had the infamous last-gasp goal by Sergio Aguero.

Manchester United hold the current record of Premier League winning margin of 18 points and City and breach this feat too. That gave us [confidence], against the last champions we are able to go there and played the way we played.

"And that was kind of a feature of every single season that we won it".

Patriots, Rob Gronkowski engage in contract talks
The tight end will not be in attendance for the start of the off-season workouts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter . Schefter adds that Gronkowski and the Patriots have had "good communication" throughout the offseason.

"You can't take [winning the league] for granted", he told Sky Sports News.

But United's loss to bottom-placed West Brom probably caught out the club and the players.

"It shows how football is in Manchester".

While Pep Guardiola was busy playing golf and claimed he wasn't going to watch United's match against West Brom, Vincent Kompany was seen watching - and celebrating - the Baggies' win.

It was a far cry from his trophy-less first season with City and Kompany said Guardiola's tenacious attitude led them to the summit.

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him. I'd like to stay humble - this is not a dynasty, it's one title.

"West Brom is a club I care about a lot", he said.
