Man City ace Aguero happy to wrap up title early

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero happy to avoid last day drama

Champions Manchester City have set their sights on rewriting the record books after clinching the Premier League title.

SERGIO AGUERO has admitted it is a relief Manchester City have secured the Premier League title without the need for any final-game drama this season.

While Guardiola was on the golf course as news filtered through of United's loss on Sunday, Gundogan was back in his native Germany watching former club Borussia Dortmund play rivals Schalke in the Bundesliga.

Though City were always favourites to romp away with the title this season, despite a horrendous last 10 days in which they were beaten by Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final, they quickly got back on track in Saturday's League match by outplaying Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at Wembley.

Given the way they have demolished all challengers in the league, it was apparent months ago that it was only a matter of when rather than if City would take the title. But the competition in the Premier League is much harder than in Germany.

Aguero, who moved to Manchester in 2011, became City's record goalscorer earlier in the campaign and now has 199 strikes for the club.


The champions host 17th-placed Swansea City in the league on Sunday. "You can't take winning the league for granted, I've won three now, but there's so many we've missed", he said.

Though their African stars, Ivory Coast's Yaya Toure and Senegal's Benjamin Mendy, did not play as much as they would have liked to, their talents, combined with the sublime Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and captain Vincent Company, have ensured City can not be overtaken, with five games to play this season. "It's been a great day", Kompany said.

After starting the title party with his Mancunian wife and his United-supporting father-in-law, City captain Vincent Kompany joined team-mates to raise a glass to their success. "It shows how football is lived in Manchester as we have Reds in the family and Blues but today was a day for the Blues".

"The first one was special but this one is perhaps the one I'm most proud of".

"It's no coincidence that the type of players brought in over the past year or two have all been of a similar age and we will look to build as a group together", De Bruyne, 26, told City's website.

"It is one of the first things I noticed within the first month", he said.
