Liverpool tipped to challenge for the Premier League by Pep Guardiola

Liverpool tipped to challenge for the Premier League by Pep Guardiola

An estimated 100,000 Manchester City supporters filled the sun-kissed streets of the city to hail their team as they paraded the English Premier League trophy yesterday (May 14).

In 37 matches, de Bruyne has collected 16 assists whilst scoring eight goals, ultimately helping Manchester City easily secure the Premier League title.

Most consecutive Premier League Manager of the Month awards: Guardiola equalled Conte's record of three successive manager-of-the-month awards after a flawless November and then went one better when he won the award for a fourth time in December. Achieved.

At +79, City beat the goal difference record of +71 set by Chelsea in 2009-10.

Pep Guardiola has done the impossible. With this, they managed to stay in the top flight for consecutive seasons for the first time since 1975-76.

The 47-year-old also became the first City manager to win the award - handed to Chelsea manager Antonio Conte last season - after Roberto Mancini (2012) and Manuel Pellegrini (2014) missed out despite winning the Premier League.

His side have one last chance to atone for an underwhelming fifth-placed finish - which condemned them to a place in next term's Europa League - when they face United at Wembley on Saturday.

Clear first choice at City, the Brazil worldwide only missed two Premier League games as Pep Guardiola's men romped to the Premier League title by a record margin. With the ongoing debate on which is the best Premier League side ever, particularly if you think of the achievements of Arsenal's "Invincibles" in 2003/04 and the Manchester United side of 1998/99.

After finishing the season with a 1-0 win at Southampton, City also secured a record 32 wins in one campaign.

Manchester City have revealed that Ederson has signed a contract extension to keep him tied down at the Etihad Stadium until 2025.

"We need more consistency to challenge and a little bit more luck with injuries", said Klopp on Sunday.

It took until the 94th minute, but a Gabriel Jesus lob in stoppage time was enough to see City reach a nice, round 100 points for the campaign - a Premier League first.

On a day of farewells, with more than half the managers either departing or with questions about their future and several distinguished players ending their club careers, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger signed off with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield. United was already assured of second place before its 1-0 win over Watford, in Michael Carrick's final game for the club.

Gabriel Jesus' victor on Sunday was City's 106 goal of the campaign, meaning they have scored an astonishing 2.79 goals per game.
