Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn'. I don't expect you to be man of the match every week, I don't expect you to score two goals every week.

City captain Vincent Kompany, speaking after the result, indicated he spoke with the same voice as manager Pep Guardiola, who can now lay claim to 24 trophies in a nine-year coaching career which includes triumphant spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich. I wouldn't be happy if someone says that I won the title because somebody loses a match.

Manchester City players have had to wait a week longer than they would have liked after prematurely booking celebratory tables at restaurants across Manchester in anticipation of a home win over their closest rivals.

"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.

Can United be more competitive next season?

"We are not going to do anything insane", Mourinho said, as reported by Sky Sports. As I was saying: this is a very hard league and all the top-six teams, we knew in advance that two of them would be outside the Champions League positions.
