Sergio Aguero says he is relieved Manchester City have wrapped up the Premier League title before the final game of the season.
City were confirmed as champions on Sunday with five games to play after Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at home to bottom side West Brom.
Aguero, who famously scored the dramatic title-winning goal in stoppage-time on the final day of the 2011-12 season, is pleased no such heroics were needed this year and says manager Pep Guardiola's style of play has been particularly impressive.
"This is my third title with City and it's just a relief not to have to wait the final day this time," Aguero said.
"This season has been incredible and the football we've played has been the best I've been involved with while at the club.
"It's been a pleasure to play with this team and be part of everything we've achieved this season.
"For players like David Silva, Vincent Kompany and Yaya [Toure] who have been here a long time, it's even more special because it's another title we've won together.
"We have scored great goals, played fantastic football and learned together under Pep.
"Now, the trick is making sure we kick on again next season and come back even stronger."
