Guardiola anticipates Liverpool Premier League title challenge

Arsene Wenger's final goodbye

"I wouldn't be backing any other team at this moment to win the Premier League", said BBC Sport pundit Shearer.

Guardiola collected his accolade at the LMA Awards dinner in London on Tuesday night, having 24 hours earlier enjoyed celebrating City's triumph with an open-top bus parade around Manchester.

Quite possibly the "dark horses" this season, Burnley have been so good that they have secured European participation for the next season and that's saying something.

Pressed on where he intends to add, Guardiola said: "Maybe in front, but I don't know".

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.

For Andre, this is the first time he has tasted relegation in his career while his younger brother has suffered relegation three times. Manchester City has proved that they are the best team in Englandovertimee after winning the Premier League in a grand style. "It's so special. It's never happened before in the Premier League and to have three digits of points is awesome".

On Wednesday, City overtook the record for most goals scored in a single Premier League when they beat Brighton 3-1, wiping Chelsea's tally of 103 goals they set in the 2009-10 season from the history books.

"It is an English rule that they can not be Champions if they haven't played five games but this achievement is for the group".

Pep Guardiola's became the first team to register 100 points in the Premier League era and collected the most wins in a campaign with 32. 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. This saw City break the record set by Sir Alex Ferguson's side when they won the 1999/00 season 18 points clear of Arsenal.

"Pep Guardiola insists Manchester City will not be spending "£300 million every season", with the plan to make just "one or two" additions this summer. "You are a top human being, I will be in your debt forever so thank you very much", he said.

"We can not invest...maybe people don't believe me but we don't have the money to invest £300m every season". After taking over a squad that needed a fair bit of work to get it back into title-winning shape - after two years of underperforming and stagnation under Pellegrini - he's pulled off superb quality and consistency in just his second season. In the process of breaking the record for most goals scored in a 38 match league, he has helped Liverpool secure a top-four position.
