City lift trophy as Huddersfield celebrate precious point

"Today was the proof - we can do better", he said.

Merson with another awful shout? "We have to understand how hard it will be next season".

Given that the two games since being confirmed as champions have seen City beat Swansea 5-0 and win 4-1 at West Ham, that challenge has clearly been accepted by his stars.

It would be fair to say that this is another instance where Merson was a bit wrong with his predictions, wouldn't it?

Champions, Manchester City, will have to wait to break the Premier League points record after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Huddersfield Town at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

"It makes this even bigger that a club of our size and circumstances, who are with no disrespect more like a League One club more than a Premier League club, can stick together and believe".

He will surely go down as one of the Premier League's greatest midfielders.

"Today, for many reasons, we were not able".

With three games remaining, City could also win the title by the largest ever margin - now the 18 points by which Manchester United captured the league in 2000 - and look certain to set a new best-ever goal difference, with their current plus-76 five goals superior to the Chelsea team of eight years ago.

City's players came out to a guard of honor made up of the Huddersfield team as well as players from City's title-winning team from 1968.

"We don't like to be too greedy, but it was possible to win the game at the end".

Shortly after the final whistle, City's captain Vencent Kompany, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero lifted the Premier League trophy, kicking off massive celebrations at the Etihad. An absolutely pivotal figure during their recent successful period, the Ivorian has cemented himself as a City legend, for his incredible goal scoring record from midfield, leadership and ability to dominate matches with apparently minimal effort. Next season we will try again.

As for City's players, they still require two points, one win and two goals to set milestones in a season when Guardiola's side cruised to the title playing the kind of football rarely seen in the English game.

They did seem fazed by the result, however, as the players enjoyed a huge bash later in the day with staff from all of City Football Group's clubs descending on Manchester ahead of meetings next week.

"That means this is more than just watching football, it is a way of life, it is about caring the attractive game, the values we cherish and something that goes through all of our bodies, through every cell of our body". Follow this team and support them because they deserve it.
