Manchester City are Premier League champions!

Our win at Tottenham yesterday - coupled with Manchester United's unexpected defeat at home to West Brom earlier - means we now have an unassailable lead with five matches remaining. 

And CityTV went round to Vincent Kompany's in-law's house to get the captain's reaction to the news United had lost. 

Understandably delighted with his third Premier League title as a City player, he spoke to Kyle Walker and Kevin De Bruyne on the phone, too. 

De Bruyne delivered a message to the fans, saying: “Thank you very much, see you Saturday…it’s going to be a nice party!”

What a season it's been. 

City are now 16 points clear of United, having scored 93 goals and losing just twice all season.

Our 18-consecutive victories between August and December set a new Premier League record and we have spent a total of 240 days at the summit of the league since the start of the season.

And by winning the title with five matches remaining, we have equalled the English top-flight record (Manchester United in 1907-08 and 2000-01, and Everton in 1984-85 all won the top-flight title with five games to spare).

So, sit back and enjoy Kompany's reaction to the news we are the 2017/18 CHAMPIONS!
