Gareth Barry insists Manchester City are deserved champions.
The Lancashire club won their first Barclays Premier League title since 1968 on Sunday thanks to a dramatic injury-time winner from Sergio Aguero.
Winning the championship under those circumstances could be seen as fortuitous, but Barry thinks otherwise.
"If you look back over the 38 games, we played the best football," the former Aston Villa man said.
"We're slowly coming down to earth after some big celebrations. It's still not really sunk in the fashion we won the title.
"The manner we did it won't be beaten for a long time. It will go down in history as a dramatic finish and it will be tough to beat."
