Manchester City registered a comfortable 2-0 win over the West Ham United to secure their second Premier League title in three years - two points clear to the nearest rivals Liverpool - on Sunday.

Needed just one point to win the championship, City removed lingering nerves in the 39th minute when Samir Nasri scored on a low long-ranger that whistled into the goal beating Adrian.

Vincent Kompany doubled the lead early into the second half, when Nasri's corner was nearly twisted into the goal by Edin Dzeko, but fell in front of Kompany, who gleefully swept the ball into the net from six yards to seal the title for City.

There was never a hint of comeback from West Ham, as City's Joe Hart was never tested in the match. Kompany, who completed a Capital One Cup and League double with this win, said he is living the dream and hailed Man City's stunning title triumph.

"Forget about the money and everything. As a kid you grow up and dream of lifting trophies – I feel like I am living that dream when I do this," Kompany said. "We're building a club, not just a team that wins trophies now and again. Next year, we need to be even better. If you want to be a big club then this must be one of so many."

City only led the Premier League for 14 days and their boss Manuel Pellegrini said it is a fine end of a difficult season in which his team was trailing most the times.

"It was a very difficult season – just a few days we were top of the league in the end. We had three games in hand for much of the year," Pellegrini said. "We were always looking at the table position behind – nine points behind Chelsea, seven points behind Liverpool, or whatever it was."

Pellegrini, who won his first league title since leaving South America and second trophy this season, congratulated his team and said he is proud to win the title and the whole team enjoyed the season.

"Of course I am proud to manage this group of players and this club. It's a great honour to be the first manager from outside of Europe to win the title, but I'm not the most important person," Pellegrini said. "I think we all enjoyed this season – the players, me, the fans – because the team played very well, this is as important as winning the title. I congratulate all of the teams – it was a fabulous Premier League."
