Man City manager Guardiola: Toughest title win in my career

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says this season's Premier League title victory has been the toughest of his career.

The Citizens were crowned champions on Sunday after beating Brighton 4-1 at the AMEX.

Guardiola's side finished with 98 points for the season, only one point ahead of Liverpool.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss told Sky Sports: "We have to say congratulations to Liverpool and thank you so much, they pushed us to increase our standards.

"It's incredible, 98 points, to go back-to-back. We made the standard higher last season and Liverpool helped us.

"To win this title we had to win 14 [league games] in a row. We couldn't lose one point.

"It's the toughest title we have won in all my career, by far."
