Vincent Kompany aiming to retain Premier League title

Not many saw it coming this Sunday but despite the surprise, Manchester City players have already switched into celebration mode after they emerged champions of the Premier League for the 2017/18 season.

Manchester City are English champions for the fifth time after Manchester United's shock 1-0 home defeat to West Brom handed their local rivals an unexpected early title party.

City boss Pep Guardiola had planned a day of golf with his son Marius Sunday, so the Spaniard might have learned of his first Premier League while on the course.

"It's wonderful. The first time you win it, you think you'll win all of them".

"I have learnt from him", the Belgian centre-back told Sky Sports. Six years later, the finale was much more underwhelming, with Rodriguez nodding in from a corner to silence the majority of Old Trafford and set up one of the most surprising wins of the season. I don't like to wait and see a team lose so it was different experience today.

And he led Bayern Munich to Bundesliga glory in each of his three years at the Allianz Arena.

Having loudly trumpeted his arrival at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho lived up the "special one" hype in his first season in England.

"Everyone that plays under him will have had success because of him, because he has the ability to unlock the full potential".

Aflac (NYSE:AFL) Stock Rating Reaffirmed by Sandler O'Neill
SeaCrest Wealth Management LLC bought a new position in shares of Aflac in the fourth quarter valued at approximately $101,000. Also, the number of institutional investors holding Aflac Inc in top ten positions was flat from 21 to 21 for the same number.

The consistency of Arsene Wenger's Invincibles has to be admired and they are still the only side to have gone through a Premier League season without losing.

"We all believed", said Kompany.

"I think to compare them to ourselves, Arsenal and Chelsea, you have to win multiple titles. One team was dominant in Germany and one had (Lionel) Messi, but we are nothing without the team". City had moved within touching distance of the title with a 3-1 win at Tottenham on Saturday.

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said on the club's website. "The guys are incredible". "This club is absolutely unbelievable in all terms".

He added: "You can win the Champions League in seven games, the league is 10 months". "What's happened in the last week is so unfair, but we have a second chance against Swansea and we're going to try and be champions".

City chief executive officer Ferran Soriano added: "Winning the Premier League again is a great honour for Manchester City".

"We are delighted to have done so providing our supporters with some very exciting and unforgettable moments". My teammates will roll their eyes as I want to see the reaction from us next season as I've never been able to retain a title.
