Alan Shearer fears that Manchester City may be in line for a long period of domination in the Premier League under Pep Guardiola

The Citizens sealed their third Premier League title in seven seasons with five matches remaining after their 3-1 win at Tottenham on Saturday.

After a disappointing first season in the Premier League, Guardiola led City to the league title in dominant fashion with newly-crowned champions currently leading arch-rivals Manchester United by 16 points and having only lost twice all season.

Currently City have the opportunity to break two more league records this season  with their 103 goals during the 2009/10 season within their reach. As well as that, Chelsea’s points record of 95 is also within touching distance with Guardiola’s side currently on 87 points with five more matches to play.

Upon witnessing the change that Guardiola has made at City, Shearer is fearful that this reign of dominance has only just begun at the Etihad Stadium and has warned their challengers.

“You go through all of City’s team and he has improved every player,” Shearer wrote on The Sun (via GiveMeSport).

“They are all playing the way Pep wants them to play.

“The worrying thing for all the other clubs now is that City could be around for a long, long time.
