The Belgian celebrated his fourth Premier League crown after a 4-1 win over Brighton secured the crown, one point ahead of Liverpool.

“Liverpool were exceptional this year and I don’t mean to rub it in – it is what it is – they didn’t deserve to be second this year, but it only makes me that much more happy that we’ve been up against such a good team and when our backs were against the wall we kept finding the results.

“We won at the Etihad against Liverpool and I think that made the difference and once we got our noses in front, we were able to stay in front – I’m so happy for myself, the team and our fans.”

Kompany said the players knew they had to focus on their own task and disregard what was happening – or appeared to be happening – elsewhere.
