However, United were flat all afternoon against the Baggies, and a second-half goal from Jay Rodriguez was enough to defeat the Red Devils, and hand City the title.

It's the first time that he hasn't won the title on the final game of the season after their successes in 2012 and 2014 and now wants to see if they are capable of defending their crown for the first time. The first time you lose it you never think you're going to win it again.

'It shows how football is in Manchester.

"It's been a fucking long journey... especially if you've been a blue for more than forty years in your heart!"

With 28 league victories so far, City need three more wins to top Chelsea´s record of 30 Premier League wins in a season. I've never retained a title'.

Kompany added: "The favourite one has to be the first one, it's like carrying a massive rock on your back and you get rid of it". It was like carrying a massive rock or stone on your back and you get rid of it. This one is the one I'm proud about in the way we've done it, but the first one was special for everyone. "I'm privileged to be part of such a great group, great players, good guys, good mentality, good atmosphere in the team, every single time I'm on the pitch I enjoy it".

Kompany also hailed the impact of Guardiola on the players at the Etihad Stadium and thanked the Spaniard's tenacious attitude for helping them reach the summit.

"It's the same feeling as the first time, you can't describe it", Kompany told Sky Sports.

"Today I'm happy, I suppose my team-mates will roll their eyes a bit when I say this but I've never been able to retain a title and I want see if this team's got it to carry on and be even more successful".

'I'd like to stay humble, it's not a dynasty, it's just one title. It is one title. "We're still super happy but theres is so much to do before we unlock our full potential".

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him.

"The difference is that we were consistent the whole season and played at the level we are expected to perform at", Kompany said. We survive and live by the strength of the team. "One team was dominant in Germany and one had (Lionel) Messi, but we are nothing without the team".
