GETTYManchester City captain Vincent Kompany has now won three Premier League titles

It's a hard achievement and I'm proud of the team and everyone involved.

And Kompany was quick to pay tribute to Guardiola for getting the best out of his players in his second season.

City's 3-1 victory away to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening left United needing to avoid defeat to West Brom to delay their rivals' title coronation, but Jose Mourinho's side surrendered in abject fashion, Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute goal handing Guardiola his seventh title in nine seasons and City their third in seven.

"I think we all believed in the style, otherwise it wouldn't have happened". "It's gone before you know it. I don't like to wait and see a team lose so it was different experience today", Kompany said.

As for Spurs, boss Mauricio Pochettino has made a total of four alterations to his team, with the most notable switch seeing Erik Lamela replace Son Heung-min.

"It differs because we were consistent the whole season, that level expected of us". "In other times we almost threw it away".

"You can't take (winning the league) for granted, I've won three now but there's so many we've missed", he said.

But soon after that, Rahul Tewatia applied the brakes and send Lewis back, who was caught by Jason Roy at mid-off. Furthermore, he applauded Jason Roy and Rishab Pant for their innings against his team.

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said on the club's website.

"Any player under him has had success because of him and how they've improved as individuals".

Manchester City had earlier released a video of Kompany watching the moment City won the title at the home of his partner's Mum, with one glum Manchester United fan quick to congratulate the Belgian defender in his moment of joy.

The 32-year-old then popped down to the local pub where he met up with team-mates Bernardo Silva, John Stones, Fabian Delph and Kyle Walker.

Word quickly got around through social media and City fans queued outside a venue still advertising United's televised clash with the Baggies in a bid to join fellow supporters inside, where the players were seen belting out Oasis' Wonderwall and being serenaded by supporters expressing their delight and gratitude.

Press Association was used in this report.

"One thing he [Guardiola] has been able to transfer is that hunger and desire to never be satisfied", said Kompany. It's not a dynasty, it's one title. "We're still super happy but theres is so much to do before we unlock our full potential". There was a period of adaptation required for everyone.
