Man City eye record books after clinching title

Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku shows his dejection after the final whistle of the English Premier League soccer match against West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford Manchester England Sunday

Even more alarming for their rivals, though, after Manchester United's 1-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday sealed City's triumph is that Pep Guardiola's latest fabulous creation may only be at the dawn of a potential new dynasty.

Sterling put in an impressive display as City breezed past Tottenham 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday in what turned out to be a Premier League title-clinching win following Manchester United's surprise defeat to West Brom on Sunday.

United prevented the Citizens from sealing the title at the Etihad Stadium last weekend after they fought back from two goals down to claim a shock 3-2 win in the 176th Manchester derby.

The club captain, a solid figure in centre of the team's defence, and also the official Club "Player of the Year" for four consecutive seasons, Dunne was a central figure in the pre-ADUG Man City team.

He added: "Now we have to try (and get better)".

"We are committed to playing attractive football and we are proud to have done it so brilliantly this season". It will be more complicated but for the club, the players, all the departments in the club, the people can believe we are good: Manchester City is a good club. Pep Guardiola on another hand further cemented his legacy in history books as he became the first Spanish manager to win the league title in England.

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. After they were dumped out of the Champions League in the group stage, they were knocked out in the FA Cup and found wanting in the EPL where they finished third, 15 points behind league winners, Chelsea. Now the 26-year-old Belgian is the best midfielder in the Premier League.

It is the second earliest date that the Premier League title has been sealed and City could still set several records before the end of an impressive campaign.

City's fans must have been left with soaring hearts on hearing how the Spaniard, in the second of a three-year deal, had talked of his long-term ambitions to make City's name resonate more in global terms.

Henceforth, City would eye surpassing Chelsea's record 95 points accumulated in a single season. Thank you for your support all season!

"I may be the first one thinking about next season".
