Pep Guardiola has paid tribute to City’s history-making EDS after they secured the Club's first ever Premier League 2 triumph. 

Our success was confirmed on Monday after Blackburn failed to beat Liverpool, meaning we have an unassailable lead with three matches remaining.

Enzo Maresca’s side have been superb, playing a thrilling brand of attacking football and scoring a remarkable 68 goals in our 21 games so far.

And we also have the second best defensive record, conceding just 28.

Guardiola, who has called upon the services of seven EDS players for the first team this season, hailed their achievement, describing the football they have played as “exceptional”.

“I am delighted for Enzo, his staff and all of the players - it’s a fantastic achievement,” Guardiola said.

“Not only has the team showed incredible consistency, they have played brilliant football.

"They always want to attack, score goals, work hard and dominate matches. Some of their performances have been exceptional. 

“I hope they enjoy this success because they deserve to. 

“It’s been a pleasure watching them and hopefully they finish the remainder of the season strongly.”
