Guardiola reveals who he thinks will challenge for EPL title next season

Most wins in a Premier League season

Manchester City's Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne (C) applauds at the end of the English Premier League football match between Southampton and Manchester City at St Mary's Stadium in Southampton, southern England on May 13, 2018.

Ultimately, a spectacular 94th minute goal by Gabriel Jesus that sealed City's 1-0 win and secured their landmark 100-point season proved irrelevant to the Saints because Swansea's defeat by Stoke City meant they were safe anyway. "Next season will be the same, like [Manchester] United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham".

The 2016 champions Leicester collapsed from 81 points to 44 the following season, a 37-point drop that sounds like it should have been the worst title defence of all time, yet in fact was scarcely even the worst title defence in 12 months.

When Pep Guardiola was officially appointed in the summer of 2016, nearly everyone knew exactly how the former Barcelona boss was going to get his City side playing. One hundred points is a lot.

"There were two scenarios - if we went down or stayed up". "It's a massive one, but now I am really looking forward to it".

Pep Guardiola's record-breaking side looked like missing out on an historic win on the south coast before substitute Jesus lobbed home to secure a 1-0 success with nearly the final kick of the game.

Four days after drawing 1-1 at home, the deposed champions looked bedraggled in losing to Newcastle thanks to goals by Dwight Gayle and Ayoze Perez, who scored twice in the second half.

The point about Ederson's quality in possession is particularly telling. "It was such a hard game, they defended very well. We are going to try".

At Anfield, they were also scouring through the record books after Salah opened the scoring against Brighton and Hove Albion with his 32nd goal of the season.

However, Mourinho also has to get more out of the marquee signings of his reign in Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez.
