Vincent Kompany delivers epic victory speech to Manchester City fans and players

Vincent Kompany is already looking ahead to next season, just hours after Manchester City were confirmed as the 2017/18 Premier League champions following Manchester United's shock defeat to West Brom at Old Trafford.

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in flawless style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.

Guardiola's side missed the chance to seal the title when they lost 3-2 at home to bitter rivals United last week, either side of two Champions League quarter-final defeats to Liverpool, and the Spaniard believes his side could still be vulnerable. The trophy is a well-deserved reward for their dominant performances, and they look set to break even more records with 5 games more to play.

"To make 18 wins in a row you have to be mentally strong and [against Tottenham] they again showed me how strong they are and this is important to help build up this club a little bit higher", he told a news conference after their 3-1 victory over Spurs. But a frantic pre-season transfer window turbo-charged the team and City out-passed and out-scored everyone else.

Raheem Sterling will be one of the best players in the world if he can become a better finisher, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes.

"I'm so happy with our season and we need to realise that we need to keep pushing and to keep working because to play at this level is about being consistent and showing better quality", he said.
