Pep Guardiola: Harder to win Premier League than Bundesliga or La Liga

Pep Guardiola: Harder to win Premier League than Bundesliga or La Liga

Manchester City were officially crowned the Premier League champions after its players lifted the competition's famous trophy following a 0-0 draw with relegation-threatened Huddersfield on Sunday.

Reflecting on their title triumph, he added: "This is the Premier League".

City failed to find the back of Hull City's net after the opening 45 minute as the first half ended in 0-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Guardiola stressed this stalemate was an indication of how challenging it will be to defend their crown.

Guardiola said on his future recently: "He will not stay next season, the Brighton game we will give him what he deserves". "Sometimes people expect, "Oh, it's so easy".

On a day when fans partied inside and outside the stadium and the side entered to a guard of honor made up of the Huddersfield team as well as players from City's title-winning team from 1968, City produced one of its sloppiest displays of the season. "We have to understand how hard it will be next season". "Sport is like this, it's so complicated".

City wrapped up the Premier League title three weeks ago but had to wait to get their hands on the trophy, and Kompany believes this most recent success differs from the others.

The Penguins tied the series back up at two games apiece, so this is now a best-of-three series the rest of the way. Dustin Byfuglien had two goals and an assist for Winnipeg, while Paul Stastny added a goal and two assists.

At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea moved within two points of fourth-placed Tottenham after their 1-0 victory over Liverpool thanks to an Olivier Giroud header. "You never know if you are going to win, but I had no doubt what I had to do". It was a tough time for me but we got there.

"And reacting to Wenger's final game in charge at The Emirates, Morgan wrote on Twitter: "[Wenger] left us 6th in the Premier League, having to qualify for the Europa League, and with a squad full of very average, overpaid wastrels. We were surprised how good we maintained our focus. Today we saw it. "That makes us special as a football club".

"We have lived this situation - in the game at Huddersfield [in November], against Southampton at home".

"It wasn't a stolen point, it was a deserved point".

"In 2006 the most hard period of my life started".

The Ivorian's best season came in 2013-14, where he scored 20 league goals from midfield and won Manchester City's Player of the Year.
