  • City seek a century as Swansea hope for a miracle

5 - City won the Premier League with five games to spare, equalling the top-flight record also achieved by Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

So, who has been selected for the clash at St Mary's? It is a day for celebration on the blue side of Manchester - though Guardiola will most likely already be preparing for his side's title defence next season. The victory helped move the 2017/18 champions to the magical 100 point mark for the campaign.

They also broke the league record for the most wins in a single season - 31. I think it's a record that will stay for a long time.

Although Trump has hinted that such a move could be coming, the detainees have not yet been released as predicted by Giuliani. He said Trump may defy a subpoena, may plead the fifth and may have paid hush money to more women through Michael Cohen .

Hughes' current deal expires at the end of the campaign, and he insisted it would be wrong to discuss new terms with Southampton until after Sunday's season-closing clash with Manchester City. "We didn't play flawless for 38 games but most of the time we were so good", Guardiola added.

City began to show a little more of their usual attacking fluidity in the second half but chances remained at a premium for Guardiola's side, Raheem Sterling hitting the post and John Stones seeing his header tipped over the crossbar.

Guardiola introduced youngsters Brahim Diaz and Phil Foden late on, ensuring both players have registered five appearances to earn a Premier League medal - with Foden becoming the youngest ever victor at 17 years and 350 days old.

City manager Guardiola insists the pursuit of a host of records has enabled his Premier League title winners to "keep focus" over the last weeks.
