How Guardiola turned Manchester City into convincing English Premier League champions

It means promising young players such as Phil Foden, the midfielder who helped England win the Under-17 World Cup last October, are likely to have to wait for the opportunity to gain Premier League experience. He also played down the importance of the records his team could break, but admitted it could be a good motivator for his team to keep concentration.

As his players returned to training ahead of Sunday's home clash with Swansea City, Guardiola was keen for the club's staff to celebrate with the first team.

"We are going to see what they think, what we think, what is their perspective for the organisation for the future".

Guardiola said: "They are playing to stay in the Premier League". Some teams have played one more game than us, some teams have played two more games than us.

Their current tally of 87 points is the most by any side in English top-flight history after 33 games of a season. We've won the most important title of the season. Congratulations to them, to Pep Guardiola, all the players and the club. He's been able to keep up his regular supply of assists, too, setting up 16 goals, with passes and through balls that are beyond many of his peers.

"It's no coincidence that the type of players brought in over the previous year or two have all been of a similar age and we will look to build as a group together".

Are Wedding Bells in Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani's Future?
Proud of her man. . "I think about it", Shelton said regarding whether a wedding would be in the cards. Shelton and Stefani officially started dating in November 2015.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, now leading the Premier League scoring chart on 30 goals, accompanies Agüero and Tottenham's Harry Kane, who has scored 26 league goals, in that attacking line-up.

The Saints and Stoke would be harder, but they still have an opportunity to get a win from each of these fixtures and shut the mouths of any critics under the circumstances.

That winning run started with Raheem Sterling's goal in the seventh minute of injury time in a 2-1 victory at Bournemouth on August 26.

Then there was the 2-1 win at Manchester United on Dec.10, featuring scrappy goals at set pieces from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi, that left City 11 points clear of its neighbor.

City have secured the title with five games to spare but Guardiola does not want his players to ease up.
