Manchester City rewrote the record books in a near flawless campaign to win the Premier League last season, but by holding off Liverpool to retain the title, they have secured their status as true greats of the English game.

A year ago it seemed City had set impossible standards to sustain in a 100-point season, winning the title with five games to go.

But by amassing another 98 points while being pushed all the way by Champions League finalists Liverpool, and staying on course for the first domestic treble in English football history, City have raised the bar again.

“It’s the toughest league I’ve ever played as a manager, because of the quality of the rivals,” said Pep Guardiola, who has now won eight league titles in 10 seasons in charge of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and City.

“When you get 100 points, everyone thinks we won’t do what we have to do, that we will do less because we won, but it has been completely the opposite.”

City have now won four titles in the past eight seasons. Complete the treble against Watford in the FA Cup final next weekend and it will be 10 major trophies since the club’s Abu Dhabi owners started pumping huge amounts of money into the famously underachieving club in 2008.

Guardiola’s side are the first team to retain the title since their bitter rivals Manchester United managed the feat in 2009.
