EPL: Guardiola reveals team that will challenge Man City next season

It's a record that will stay long.

"100 points is a lot; 50 points at home, 50 points away so it means how stable, how good we were all the season".

"I want to win everything we can!"

Pep Guardiola's side amassed a record 100 points and 106 goals on the way to winning by 19 points from nearest challengers Manchester United.

Brazil striker Jesus latched on to Kevin De Bruyne's excellent raking pass in the 93rd minute at St Mary's to ensure City became the first team in English top-flight history to reach three figures. The season could have gone either way quite easily, but Big Sam guided the Toffees to a record of 9W-7D-8L in his 24 games in charge.

And that was the most surprising result of the Premier League season that left United five points behind their title rivals.

The 2016 champions Leicester collapsed from 81 points to 44 the following season, a 37-point drop that sounds like it should have been the worst title defence of all time, yet in fact was scarcely even the worst title defence in 12 months.

Ederson is a wonderful goalkeeper, John Stones seems to be rising to the level expected at the Etihad and of course moving forward City are a potent threat.

Rihanna to gift lingerie line to bride-to-be Meghan Markle?
Savage gives her fans the opportunity to become the unapologetic "bad gal" that's interchangeable with her name. Rihanna should not be the only "queen of inclusion" in the beauty industry, as one Instagram comment stated.

There were a handful of high-profile transfers that occurred only after the Premier League season started, such as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's move to Liverpool from Arsenal as well as Tottenham's deadline day scoop of Fernando Llorente - as well as Chelsea's last-minute deals for Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta.

"His (Arteta's) contribution (to our season), was outstanding, amazing". I'm really happy we didn't because Brighton wouldn't have deserved that.

"If he decides to go, I will be so sad but I will understand his decision". "They had a different attitude, motivation, and desire than we had". The first qualifying round, which will involve Celtic, also overlaps with the World Cup, though the play-off proper is not until the end of August.

"I wouldn't be backing any other team at this moment to win the Premier League", said BBC Sport pundit Shearer.

The 32-year-old was allowed to make common visits to Valencia throughout the second half of Metropolis's record-breaking marketing campaign to see his hospital-bound son.

The Magpies ended the campaign with a 3-0 win over Chelsea and owner Mike Ashley knows how crucial it is for the club to hang on to his services.

Salah has scored 44 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions this season, and will get the chance to add to that tally when Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26.

It's been almost a month since Manchester City won the title and everyone would have understood if they had mentally clocked off at that point.
