Eleven Premier League records Manchester City smashed in title-winning season

KEY PLAYER... Thomasau Forbes is back in the Welwitschias team to face the Pumas tomorrow

The choreographer of some of the most breathtaking football ever witnessed in the English top flight, Pep Guardiola's Manchester City didn't so much play, as perform what often appeared to be a completely different sport to many of their comparatively clod-hopping rivals. They're probably embarrassed by the season they've had because it's a quality squad.

Shane Long of Southampton takes part in the lap of honour after the Premier League match between Southampton and Manchester City at St Mary's Stadium on May 13, 2018 in Southampton, England.

"It's incredible, 50 (points) at home and 50 away", Guardiola, who went one better than when he oversaw Barcelona's 99-point LaLiga-winning 2009-10 season. I want to say thank you to the Premier League for giving me the opportunity to be here, to share with my family, living here in England.

10 - players to have featured in every minute of their team's campaign. Defensively they're poor, as the Champions League proved.

Exclusively a 10-goal swing in aim distinction may have despatched them down and a loss for rivals Swansea meant there was by no means any hazard of that taking place.

Liverpool progressed unchecked to a final date with Real Madrid in Kiev - an achievement that means the 25-point gulf between themselves and champions City, along with a failure to make certain of a top-four spot before the final round of fixtures, has avoided a degree of scrutiny.

For Andre, this is the first time he has tasted relegation in his career while his younger brother has suffered relegation three times.

Speaking at a news conference on Friday, Guardiola said: "Jurgen [Klopp] is a top manager, creating not just an offensive style and not just thinking about the spectators".

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.

A gulf between the best and the rest has grown anyway and Arsene Wenger, the departing Arsenal manager, predicted a massive transformation in the coming years.

Dejan Lovren added a second before Dominic Solanke and Andy Robertson registered their first goals for the club in the 4-0 win. "You have to choose one, I was this one", he said. Manchester City also has the likes of Raheem Sterling, David Silva, Leroy Sane and Bernardo Silva who can change the game at any point in time, especially when City are in a tough situation and need a goal to save the game.

Certainly there were Managers who did great jobs throughout the season. Or perhaps one of the other big-spending sides of the Premier League era may have managed it.
