Guardiola blasts Premier League over winners' medal rule

  • Why Raheem Sterling missed Man City's win against Brighton

With a victory over Southampton on the season's final day Sunday, City would become the first team with 100 points in a Premier League season.

We've picked out 20 questions based on the 2017/18 Premier League season but how many can you get right?

"In terms of stats and numbers, we were the best".

Thanks to Chelsea's flop against Huddersfield at home midweek, the Reds need just a single point to confirm a Champions League place next season.

We still have the 100-point target to play for, though the players have eased off the pace a little in the last couple of games and I can understand that.

The 23-year-old Portugal worldwide said: "Yes, the manager and all the staff told us they wanted it, they said, "Let's break the records because it will be something special".

Guardiola, who also stated his belief but not certainty that Sergio Aguero will remain next season despite rumours linking him with a return to Atletico Madrid, added his desire to make sure Sterling remains in City blue for the foreseeable future.


Despite a lack of game time at club level this season, Didier Deschamps will include the left-back in his squad with Lucas Hernandez or Lucas Digne expected to join him as the second left-back pick. His name was chanted throughout the contest, there was a huge cheer when he was substituted late on. There are plenty of stereotypes for English players to break, and they could put the foot on the gas pedal Sunday.

Pep Guardiola insists he intends to sign a maximum of two new players this summer.

For only if the Welsh outfit can beat already-relegated Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium and champions City thrash Southampton at St Mary's to effect a 10-goal swing will the Saints tumble out of the top flight instead of the Swans.

"We can't depend on ourselves and we don't like that".

"We will try to win the game".

Now safe, Dave Wagner's men will be looking to send Arsene Wenger off into the Premier League sunset without the farewell win his 22 years at Arsenal surely demand.
