Manchester City lifted the Premier League title yesterday, but manager Pep Guardiola warned their status as champions will make next season more hard.

"England is a special place and is so tough". "You win or lose, you have to try and do what you believe".

"I think next year is going to be more exciting than this year".

"Today was the proof - we can do better", he said. We lost a little bit of focus this week but it's normal. We tried to press them high; we did a good job but got a bit exhausted.

City were in party mood as they celebrated the title they secured last month following Sunday's clash with Huddersfield.

Triple H was so amazed with the champions' performances he made a decision to award them with a special WWE honour.

Like Toure, David Silva has been key in City's rise, the Spaniard also winning three Premier League titles at the club, as well as a trio of EFL Cups.

City lifted the Premier League title following the conclusion of the match and Toure was interviewed on the pitch after announcing that he will be leaving at the end of the current campaign.

City had already been confirmed as the division's winners last month and yesterday was supposed to be the day they added exclamation marks, with three Premier League records in their sights.

Victory would have guaranteed Huddersfield safety and another season of top flight football.

The draw was more important to Huddersfield, which moved three points clear of the relegation zone with two games to play - against Chelsea and Arsenal.

By the interval, Huddersfield were visibly wilting in the Manchester heat and facing the prospect of a long second half of attrition.

City started brightly, with Christopher Schindler clearing off his line from a scramble at a Leroy Sane corner, but otherwise Huddersfield defended manfully and substitute Scott Malone might even have snatched a dramatic injury-time victor for the visitors.

And Guardiola's heartfelt congratulations to his opposite number David Wagner after the final whistle demonstrated the importance of the point to the Terriers, who now join Everton and Manchester United as the only sides to have avoided a league defeat at City's ground this term.
