Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola planning a summer move for Bayern's Alcantara

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola planning a summer move for Bayern's Alcantara

Other fans praised United for congratulating City, who hold an unassailable 16-point lead over them.

Where do you think City need to strengthen for next season's Champions League campaign?

Only Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85) have ever wrapped up the title with as many games remaining, while Guardiola has also become the first Spanish coach to win the English top-flight title.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola will play golf rather than watch Manchester United's game against West Brom on Sunday - despite knowing his side could win the Premier League title. "They deserve all my respect". "He was injured before the game (against Liverpool) but he made a huge effort to help us for 10-15 minutes".

"I do not buy this stuff about the Premier League is the main thing, that it is the important one because that is the hardest one to win", said the Sun's head of sport.

"And as we know he does not often spend more than three or four seasons at a club, so in what may be his final season, that could be the one that will really define his legacy". Some pundits are already ranking City - who at one stage this season won a record 18 successive league games - alongside Manchester United's 1999 treble winners and the 2003-04 Arsenal "Invincibles".

It's for that reason that they beat their rivals again in this mini-league.




The North London side will be going all out to seal a top-three spot, which means avoiding the Champions League play-offs.

"We congratulate them, they are very close to winning the Premier League".

Much of the blame for Guardiola's first-season struggles was pinned on a series of errors from Claudio Bravo, brought from Barcelona to replace the ostracised Joe Hart.

Guardiola cited two high-profile sporting collapses when examining his own team's prospects -- Real Madrid's miserable finish to the 2003-04 La Liga season, and Golden State Warriors' failure to win basketball's NBA finals in 2016.

Gabriel Jesus had put City ahead in the 22nd minute, racing onto Vincent Kompany's long ball and sliding a low shot past Hugo Lloris.

That streak was kept alive as Sterling also struck late twice in three days in late November to edge out Huddersfield and Southampton 2-1 to demoralise the chasing pack.

It was nearly too easy for City and they slipped up in the 42nd minute. You didn't expect City to beat the Invincibles, did you? In the league every game you have to stay there.
