Guardiola leads Man City to his 'toughest title' yet

SHOWS: BRIGHTON, ENGLAND, UK (MAY 12, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER PEP GUARDIOLA SPEAKING AT POST MATCH NEWS CONFERENCE AFTER WINNING PREMIER LEAGUE TITLE 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) PEP GUARDIOLA, MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER, SAYING: "We did it!

It was an incredible but we did it.

So, amazing.

This league, the best managers are here, incredible players and especially the rivalry we faced this season gives even more credit to what we have done.

Last season was the first one and it was incredibly good to be the first one, but from the beginning we realised Liverpool were incredible, so being out from the Carabao Cup and FA Cup soon helped them play less games than us but we were incredibly consistent and nothing so we are there." 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) PEP GUARDIOLA, MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER, ON WHICH LEAGUE WAS TOUGHEST FOR HIM AND HIS COACHING STAFF TO WIN, SAYING: "That is the toughest league we have won from the beginning.

I won in Spain, I won in Germany, but that is the toughest one, especially the rival that we had to face all season." , ENGLAND, UK (MAY 12, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 4.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) PEP GUARDIOLA, MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER, ON THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING BACK INTO GAME AFTER SLIPPING BEHIND EARLY, SAYING: "But we were a little bit fortunate and we were lucky when you immediately after one minute equalise because in these kind of games, the mental things, what the people think about what happened is the most dangerous thing.

We scored a goal immediately and after set pieces for me it was a good point for us." STORY: Manchester City retained the Premier League title on Sunday (May 12), securing top spot with an emphatic 4-1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion on the final day of the season.

City finished with 98 points, one point ahead of second-placed Liverpool, who finished the campaign with a 2-0 home victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

At the conclusion of the highest-quality duel for the title ever seen in the English game, City, with a remarkable 14th straight league victory, came from behind to become the first team since Manchester United in 2009 to earn back-to-back championships.

City manager Pep Guardiola said the campaign was the toughest he's ever been involved in, saying the margins between victory and defeat are becoming razor thin in the modern game.

With Liverpool leading 1-0 at home to Wolves, City's only moment of alarm came when they went 1-0 down at Brighton's AMEX Stadium to a 27th minute Glenn Murray goal.

But Sergio Aguero responded with a goal 83 seconds later and City went on to dominate with Aymeric Laporte heading them ahead before halftime and Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan sealing the triumph after the interval.

Champions League finalists Liverpool, who won with a double from Sadio Mane, had the consolation of achieving the best-ever performance by a second-placed club in the annals of England's top flight.
