Jose Mourinho's side finished runners-up in 2017/18

His stunning tally of 44 goals and 16 assists in just 51 matches in all competitions, arguably makes him the best Premier League signing in recent memory.

Liverpool only needed to draw with Brighton to secure another season in the Champions League, but manager Juergen Klopp fielded an attacking team and was rewarded with a 4-0 victory at Anfield.

Vincent Kompany of Manchester City lifts the Premier League Trophy alongside David Silva, Nicolas Otamendi and Fernandinho as Manchester City celebrate winning the Premier League Title during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Huddersfield Town at Etihad Stadium on May 6, 2018 in Manchester, England. Along the way, they amassed a record-equalling 11 successive away wins, a feat previously achieved by Chelsea in 2008.

Speaking as quoted by City's official website, Guardiola said: "What can I say?"

The top six teams, led by City in record-breaking fashion, all had a goal difference of at least plus 23.

However, Pep Guardiola has insisted he will only tinker this summer, having overhauled an ageing squad in his first two seasons in charge.

Ederson has committed himself to Manchester City for the next seven years, the Premier League champions have announced.


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.

The only minor worry for Guardiola is that he may be about to lose one of his assistants in the close season, with Mikel Arteta of interest to Arsenal, as they search for Arsene Wenger's successor.

"A man who has added LMA and Premier League Manager of the Year awards to his roll of honour told Monday Night Football: "[We will sign] one or two more, no more. 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.

With this, they have qualified for next season's Europa League. Manchester United finished 19 points behind City.

City also recorded the most wins in an English top-flight season with 32.

Lambert succeeded Mark Hughes in January but Stoke's relegation was confirmed last week and this win was only his second in 15 games.

That established a new mark for a 38-game campaign, beating the previous 31-goal record he shared with Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez. "At some stage it has to end, I wish everyone well, the fans have been great until the end and I wish the club well for the future".
