Eleven Premier League records Manchester City smashed in title-winning season

Benitez would probably like to bring in better competition for Yedlin at right back, but the former Seattle Sounder should have every opportunity to continue to play a sizable role at St. James' Park.

Fittingly, it was Salah who guided Liverpool back into the Champions League and he ended a sun-kissed afternoon at Anfield lifting the Golden Boot for being the Premier League's top scorer this season. They had no competitor for the title this season, with Man Utd the closest to them, ultimately finishing 19 points adrift of their rivals. I blame Pep Guardiola for that.

"I will not say just Liverpool [will challenge] but it's still true". And the Belgian has emerged as the true playmaker of Pep Guardiola's entertaining side with the player collecting the Premier League award for the most assists of the 2017/18 season. There is nothing to indicate that Guardiola or the team that he has assembled will be loosening their grip on the Premier League trophy any time soon.

Since the Premier League's inception in 1992, Burnley have managed to make only 5 appearances in the tournament and needless to say, a lot of them haven't been that memorable.

Severe thunderstorms expected to impact afternoon commute
Almost 100 customers without power in Germantown are expected to have the issue fixed by 5:30 p.m., according to National Grid. The powerful wind gusts came and went quickly this evening, but the rain will take longer to clear out of the Richmond area.

Meanwhile, the 27 City conceded this season is some way off the 15 goals Chelsea let in when they won their first league title under Mourinho. In spite of such niggling issues which often prove to be a major headache for a mid-table team, Dyche managed to keep the good form going and ultimately helped Burnley finish 7th. City beat that with a final goal difference of +79. Last year, the top six finished eight points clear of seventh place — Everton in that case — and the gap has widened still 12 months later.

Instead, it is English football that will need to change in order to meet the challenge of Guardiola's football revolution.

Next season, things will likely be tougher for Manchester City, at least domestically.

"To be out of the Champions League and win the Premier League again, I'd sign it now". "It's not the time to talk of next season". City conceded the fewest goals in the league, 27 in 38 games. And who should be kept as far away from global football as possible?
