Pep Guardiola saluted Manchester City's history makers after they clinched the domestic treble with a swaggering 6-0 rout of Watford in the FA Cup final on Saturday. Guardiola's side capped an incredible campaign in fittingly dynamic fashion as Watford were put to the sword by Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus both scoring two apiece with David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne also on target.

Just a week after winning a second successive EPL crown, City's FA Cup victory made them the first English club to win the English title, FA Cup and League Cup in the same season. They are the first English side to register 50 wins in all competitions in a season.

"It was an incredible final and we have finished an incredible year. To all the people at the club a big congratulations, especially the players because they are the reason why we have won these titles," Pep said.

A dream come true, says Manchester City hero Sterling
Raheem Sterling admitted his FA Cup final brace of goals represented a dream come true as the Manchester City forward inspired his side's 6-0 rout of Watford in Saturday's FA Cup final.

Having spent much of his childhood living just a stone's throw from Wembley, Sterling's latest homecoming couldn't have gone much better and he was delighted to make such a significant contribution in front of his family and friends. "I grew up here and saw this stadium get built. It's a massive dream come true to win trophies here," Sterling said. "The boys did brilliant. My goals added to the win. It was brilliant from everyone."
