Guardiola blasts Premier League over winners' medal rule

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said the opportunity to chase down a host of records has kept the newly-crowned Premier League champions focused in the final few weeks of the campaign. His passing game and eye for goal have been crucial for Rafael Benitez's team, prompting talk of an England call-up, but his opening day red card also highlighted his indiscipline at times. A picture of Shaqiri is likely sitting next to the word 'inconsistent' in a dictionary somewhere.

There is potential for drama, of course, but it would require scenarios that seem rather far fetched at this stage.

A source told SunSport that star man Aaron Mooy, who will be playing at this summer's World Cup in Russia for Australia, was seen smoking at least 10 cigarettes during the night out.

"In the end, we have won one title - three in six years".

"I will have to take time, thinking as always to choose the right one", he said.

City moved onto 97 points, two more than Chelsea's final total from the 2004-05 season, and 105 goals, two more than Chelsea's previous record haul from the 2009-10 season. "I don't know, one of these three [could win]".

Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang personalised the shin-pads that he wore in the North London derby earlier this year with an image of Goku, the main character from the anime series Dragon Ball Z.

Yaya Toure lauded Manchester City 's campaign as "perfect" after he completed his final home game for the club in the 3-1 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion, highlighting his winning goal in the 2011 FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United as his finest moment. They may try to keep things tight early on to avoid a disaster, but my feeling is that this game will open up as City push to break more records.

Linking up well with his attacking players, the Dane has often been the creative hub at Tottenham and Mauricio Pochettino's men can find themselves left wanting when Eriksen is missing.

Southampton earned a vital win over relegation-threatened rival Swansea in midweek and goes into the last game with a three point leverage and favourable goal difference of nine.

With prize cash rising by increments of £2m by place within the desk, Manchester City, as champions, are assured to earn the utmost amount of cash of £40m. But the semi-final was a big part of it.

- Burnley secured a top-seven finish and subsequently qualified for Europe for the first time in over 50 years.

What a season in front of goal Raheem Sterling has had.

Swansea are not expected to exercise their option to extend it, the Guardian newspaper and the BBC reported.

There were rumours of him moving to America, and with City being "feeder" team of New York City this could be a smooth transition to the MLS. But the Argentine's experience has seen him top the Premier League tackles chart this term with 95.

Guardiola said he agreed with those who argue that City need to win more titles to be considered the equals of the great sides of the past, including Liverpool and Manchester United.
