Manchester City have "a hell of an opportunity" to go on and dominate the Premier League after winning the title this season, says Alan Shearer.

"Seeing all the people who want to join us and have a party is awesome", he told Sky Sports.

The final day of the season also saw them break a number of other records, just to add insult to injury for the rest of the league's teams.

"Maybe he didn't play as much as we wanted for him this season but he's been an wonderful part of the team and its success".

Pep Guardiola has been voted LMA Manager of the Year after steering Man City to the title in a record-breaking season.

There can be no denying that the impact of Sterling and Sane this season has been formidable, with both wingers collectively scoring 28 goals between them and assisting their teammates on 26 occasions in the league.

Speaking after a bilateral meeting with EU's Federica Mogherini on Tuesday, Zarif said he had good and constructive talks with her.

As well as their landmark points haul, formidable City also finished the campaign with a record 106 goals scored and 32 victories.

An estimated 100,000 Manchester City supporters filled the sun-kissed streets of the city to hail their team as they paraded the English Premier League trophy on Monday.

The Manchester side have been beaten just twice in the league this term, going down at Liverpool in January before suffering a home defeat to United. As Jose Mourinho pointed out in interviews earlier this season, the Chelsea (under both Conte and Mourinho) and Leicester teams that won these titles were "super-defensive teams" with a killer counter-attack.

A 2-1 away win at Manchester United in December seemed to be the point in which we could all start crowning City as the champions.

"City have been unbelievable this season, they thoroughly deserve it but next year we want to be closer to them and who knows, we could win it".

While compelling arguments can be made for awarding a number of different bosses the accolade of manager of the season, it would seem churlish to overlook the man who masterminded one team's canter to the title. We found during the process we were winning games.
