Manchester City want to be regarded as one of the greatest teams in Premier League history, says defender Kyle Walker.

They won the title with five games to spare on Sunday when Manchester United suffered a surprise home defeat by West Bromwich Albion.

City have 87 points this season, 16 points ahead of second-placed United.

“There is still a lot of room for improvement,” England international Walker, 27, told BBC Radio 5 live.

“I have read some articles that say we need to win things continuously for a number of years before we are classed as a great team.

“Every single one of us wants to be recognised as one of the greatest teams to play in the Premier League.

City lost 5-1 on aggregate to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-finals.

“If we concentrate on ourselves then as a team we can go on to great things,” said Walker, a £45m signing from Tottenham last July.

“But the Liverpool game showed us that we are not a perfect team.”

City’s title triumph came in manager Pep Guardiola’s second season in charge, a campaign in which they also won the League Cup.

Guardiola won the Champions Leagues twice and La Liga three times with Barcelona, and the Bundesliga three times with Bayern Munich.
