Guardiola: This season felt incredible

The Argentina worldwide may still be prone to some freaky decisions, but Otamendi has made 2,665 successful passes in the Premier League this season, at least 300 more than any other player, showing how the champions play the ball out from the back.

"But if that can help us to be more focused against four or five teams fighting against relegation... it would be nice to finish good in terms of the good feelings we've had all the season".

Chelsea set the record of 95 points in 2004-05 but that's not the only target in City's sights. I don't know how the players will see me after winning, or how I will see them.

City's win over Tottenham last week, coupled with rivals Manchester United's loss against bottom club West Bromwich Albion meant that Pep Guardiola's men were crowned as champions with five games to play. He also played down the importance of the records his team could break, but admitted it could be a good motivator for his team to keep concentration. Now I really feel good.

Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal: "I believe it will be a fight to stay up until the last minute".

Guardiola's next task, however, is to refocus his players for the final five matches of the season. But I don't know how they will react to success.

Manchester City have only lost two league games all season - against Liverpool and Manchester United. Aguero missed most of City's games in March because of a left knee injury. "But what you have done - all the people here, you deserve all my respect", said Guardiola.

City have the Premier League's record points and goals tallies of 95 and 103 in their sights over five remaining matches pitting them against sides at the wrong end of the table - something Guardiola hopes can act as motivation against a familiar lull.

Salah is joined in attack by Tottenham's Harry Kane and Man City striker Sergio Aguero. He has provided six assists in the Premier League in 2017-18, his best ever return in a top-flight season.

Playing a decisive part in 19 Premier League goals this season - eight goals and 11 assists - Silva could beat his most productive campaign of 21 goal involvements in 2011-12.
