As the Manchester City players arrived for training on Thursday morning ahead of their clash with Swansea on Sunday, their preparations may have been slightly more low-key.

Pep Guardiola’s side have been getting used to the title of ‘Premier League champions’ this week after they were handed the crown on a plate by rivals Manchester United on Sunday.

Having wrapped up the title with five games still to contest, Guardiola’s men arrived for training a stress-free side.

Goalkeeper Ederson arrived in his red Ferrari maintaining his image as a cool customer between the City sticks, while Kevin De Bruyne and Aymeric Laporte also welcomed the long-overdue Manchester sunshine with a pair of sun glasses.

Yaya Toure was the more difficult City star to spot as he covered his face with a hood whilst being driven onto the site of the Etihad training facility in a black Range Rover.

Life is good at City at the moment with their Champions League heartbreak at the hands of Liverpool a mere blip in their dominant season.

And now, Guardiola’s men can relax and shift into cruise control for their remaining games with only Chelsea’s record points tally of 95 set in 2004-05 and a strong finish their targets heading into their final game at Southampton on May 13.

Their dominance has seen City take up three of the five PFA Player of the Year shortlisted spaces with De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and David Silva joining Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah. Sane also topped the Young Player of the Year list alongside Raheem Sterling and goalkeeper Ederson.

It’s been a remarkable revival by Guardiola after a rocky first season in charge at the Etihad, after scraping into a Champions League place, but having stuck to his guns, he is reaping the rewards.

As well as his intense passion for football, his personable skills is another trait that has won over those that work with and under him at City.
