Silva reflects on 'most special' City title after premature birth of son

Manchester City's players celebrate during their 3-1 victory against Tottenham on Saturday

"I'm probably the first one to think about next season". It is hard to speak about Manchester City for me, but what Pep Guardiola has done is awesome; to win the title with the football he plays is great.

"This season has been incredible and the football we've played has been the best I've been involved with while at the club".

It was always a matter of when rather than if City would be champions after they led the way for most of the season. City joins the 2005-06 Chelsea and 2010-11 Manchester United sides for this feat.

But Jose Mourinho's men still ended up handing the trophy to City with a lacklustre display against bottom of the table Albion, who had won only three times in the league this season before this weekend.

Chelsea's record of 30 wins last season may last only a year if City can add another three to their current 28. "Premier League Champions 17/18", City posted on their official Twitter account.

"This one differs in the fact we were consistent the whole season, we played at the level we wanted to and a few times we won it before we almost threw it away".

Central midfield is the most pressing concern, with Fernandinho needing a back-up or a foil in his important role as the anchorman behind playmakers Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva. The club has recorded an unassailable 87 points in 33 games so far. "But we are nothing without the team".

Shaw writes: "Everyone has their own definition of what constitutes the "best" Premier League team in history but winning with style is only half the battle".

Can anyone stop City next season?

The mood inside the United camp has been buoyed by their thrilling derby victory over champions-elect Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

An approach to the game which has a lineage back to the Dutch "total football" of the early 1970s, taken to Barcelona by Johann Cruyff and which Guardiola has adapted and evolved, requires not only a top skillset from the players but a change of mentality.

Guardiola will have to decide sooner rather than later if he intends to leave at the end of his contract or sign a fresh deal, likely for another year. But maybe it will be a lesson for the future for them and next season.

How to City compare with other great sides?

Kompany has already called on City to "unlock their full potential" and be successful for years to come following confirmation of their title.
