Plenty of Manchester City fans have been joyously recalling the one-year anniversary of their most recent Premier League triumph, with many honing in on Vincent Kompany’s glee.
Twitter channel @City_Xtra shared a video of Pep Guardiola’s team receiving the trophy after their 4-1 win at Brighton confirmed a fourth Premier League title, with their Belgian captain passionately roaring with delight as he stepped up to take the silverware.
📆 #OnThisDay in 2019:
👕 38 Games
✅ 32 Wins
🤝 2 Draws
❌ 4 Defeats
⚽️ 95 Goals Scored
🥅 23 Goals Conceded
📈 98 Points

That would prove to be Kompany’s 265th and final league game for Manchester City as he announced his departure from the club a week later and his goal against Leicester the previous week ultimately proved crucial in a tightly-fought Premier League title race.
Guardiola’s side finished on 98 points, just one clear of a Liverpool team who took their challenge to the final day of the season, a stark contrast from the previous season when City romped to the title with 100 points, 19 more than second-placed Manchester United.

Kompany knows how to hype a crowd

Unsure why, but this last season felt the sweetest of them all. Obviously, the 2012 93:20 title will be the most crazy, but all Blues will agree there was a rollercoaster of emotions leading to euphoria and disbelief. This, however, was completely different emotionally. #MCFC https://t.co/P5bgH68lZ4
