Guardiola has now spoken to Sky Sports after seeing his team make Premier League history.

And the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss believes Arsenal and Liverpool will continue to challenge his side's dominance in the coming years, despite both teams missing out this year.

"Thank you so much. Wow. It was nice, of course it was worse for Arsenal, Liverpool as well but especially Arsenal to bring us to push another level," he said.

"Before it was Liverpool who pushed us to our limits in these past two seasons, especially this one has been an incredible season.

"We get the message, so I know they will be there for many years.

"Big talent and a young manager and a young squad, a young team, they sent us a message we need to be careful for the next years.

"Today is the day for celebrating it. The people tell me, next seven years you are going to win six Premier League titles!

"I will say you are insane. It's not going to happen, it happened."

Many other City players also spoke out after the game.

Foden, speaking after winning his sixth league crown, said: "It is so hard to put into words what we've done today.

"No team has ever done it [won four in a row], we have put ourselves into the history books.

"You see what it means to the fans and to us players working all year for this moment.

"A special moment to share it with the fans."

He added: "I think to win the Premier League four times, no team has ever done it before, so to do it means we are up there [with the best teams of all time].

"I am just absolutely shattered to be honest."

Erling Haaland won the Golden Boot for the second year in a row, having bagged 27 goals - five more than Chelsea's Cole Palmer.

And the Norway international reacted to his side's win by saying: "Incredible. It's fantastic.

"After we beat Tottenham we kind of knew we were going to do it. I was confident.

"It's [the slow start to the season] like that every year. It's like we add on a little bit extra because that's when it really matters.

"I'm happy and I can't complain."

And City captain Kyle Walker said his side's win was a 'dream come true'.

"I am the man at the front and I wear the armband but I don't put myself above anyone else," he insisted.

"We are a team. There are four captains including myself, and we all pull our weight.

"I am just the man they've picked to wear the armband which I am very grateful for.

"To be able to lift the trophy in this scenario, the four in a row, it is a dream come true."
