Guardiola Vows To Get Aguero Fit For World Cup

However, Guardiola hailed the consistency of his side throughout the course of the season that could still see them break the records for Premier League points and goals.

Pep Guardiola's side achieved the feat with a record-equalling five matches to spare and could finish the season with an even greater cushion than their current 16-point lead. "I know I have to press more, I have to be in front of them more, I have to make sure they arrive at the training session at the right time".

The Argentina striker underwent minor knee surgery earlier this week and will miss the rest of the club season.

Pep Guardiola has confirmed that he will discuss a new contract with Manchester City after clinching the Premier League title, but will only continue at the club as long as he has "the strength and energy". Swansea, meanwhile, began an odyssey that would take them to the very basement of the league and nearly to extinction.

"What I lived, what I felt this season, it's something wonderful". England reach the World Cup final and Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling scores the victor in the 114th minute.

Guardiola, who took over at City in 2016, is expected to commit for at least one more year but he remains coy discussing the matter, particularly over whether he could extend his stay at the Etihad Stadium beyond 2020.

Time is fast running out for West Brom, Stoke and Southampton to save themselves from the trap door of Premier League relegation and the drastic loss of revenue it entails.


They are also keen to avoid embarrassment against a Swansea side who, for all their troubles this season, have beaten Liverpool and Arsenal in the league since Christmas. We tried to keep going but we were not able.

"The Premier League is the priority next season, absolutely".

"We did it for one season but I think to be a solid team, and Europe can start watching what we have done, it is not just one season". Teams who might have 36 points lose a little concentration, it can put a team in a very hard situation.

Fulham still has work to do in the Premier League promotion picture, despite the spectacular form.

Manchester City have dominated the Professional Footballers' Association's Premier League team of the year, with five players named in the select XI. The same can be said of the defensive positions, where the central partnership of Nicolas Otamendi and Vincent Kompany, which has closed out the last weeks of the title push, might not ultimately be the one Guardiola rates as his best pairing for the future.

Asked if Foden might play against Swansea, Guardiola replied: "I don't know". Within the coaching classes we are going to insist there are nonetheless video games to play - (out of) respect for the 5 opponents and the remainder of the competitors.
