Kompany eyes back-to-back titles

16 April 2018 03:23:35 EST

Vincent Kompany is already thinking about winning next season's Premier League title after Manchester City were crowned 2017/18 champions on Sunday.

City were handed their third title in seven seasons when Manchester United were beaten 1-0 by rock-bottom West Brom.

That result meant City were confirmed as champions with a record-equalling five games remaining.

Kompany is now aiming to win back-to-back Premier League titles though - Manchester City are 5/4 to lift the 2018/19 title, while Manchester United can be backed at 250/1, Liverpool at 4/6 and Chelsea at 200/1.

"You can't take it for granted," said the 32-year-old Belgian. "I've been lucky to win three titles but so many I've missed as well.

"But my team-mates might roll their eyes when I say this: I want to see how the reaction is going to be now. I've never been able to retain the title and want to see if this team has got it to carry on and be even more successful.

"We want to stay humble about the fact that it's not a dynasty... it's one title and there is still so much work to be done before the full potential is unlocked."

Roberto Mancini guided City to the 2011/12 title when Sergio Aguero scored a last-gasp winner at QPR on the final day of the season before, two years later, Manuel Pellegrini's side were crowned champions.

"The difference is that we were consistent the whole season and played at the level we are expected to perform at," Kompany added. "In other times we nearly threw it away."
