Pep Guardiola keen to celebrate Premier League title against Swansea next week

Chelsea kept their faint hopes of Champions League football next season alive by closing to within 7 points of Spurs with a stunning 8-minute fightback to deepen Southampton's predicament in the bottom three. Real Madrid, many years ago, lose six games in a row and didn't win the league.

West Brom's official Twitter account tweeted "you're welcome" to Manchester City, while its fans at Old Trafford sang: "We've won you the league, Manchester City, we've won you the league".

"Against a team like City, it was so easy for them". (The match is now goalless at half time).

West Brom is dead last in the Premier League, now nine points back of safety with four matches to play.

"The way we conceded was disappointing, but there's nothing to worry about".

"It's the same feeling as the first time, you can't describe it", Kompany told Sky Sports. Arsenal look rattled and struggle to retain possession as they chase Pep's team down.

"And that has got to be the ultimate for them". We can not forget he was out one month injured, he made a huge effort because after the tackle from Ashley Young against United the problem started. In one week we lost three games, that happened. To who? Manchester City.

City could yet finish the season with the most points, goals and wins from a single Premier League campaign.

The Citizens were comfortable winners at Wembley, with goals from Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling helping Guardiola's men to a 3-1 win.


"What they lived in the last week was so unfair but they deserve (to win the league) and now we have a match ball".

"Spurs didn't have a game for a week".

Luis Suarez gave Barca the lead after a quarter-hour by meeting a delicious outside-of-the-foot pass from former Liverpool teammate Philippe Coutinho, scoring with one touch from close range.

The leaders are 16 points clear of second-placed United and a defeat for Jose Mourinho's men against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday would see City take the trophy. Winning titles in every league is important, with Barcelona was special.

The dominant start was rewarded when City took the lead in the 22nd in a manner not out of the usual Guardiola playbook.

A far more frenetic game occurs in the rematch between 2007/08 United and 2017/18 City. They are 10 years into the project at City, maybe a bit longer, and I feel they are into extra time now about whether they should be winning the Champions League.

Ronaldo puts the hosts ahead 20 minutes in, before De Bruyne lobs Edwin van der Sar from forty yards before half-time.

"We missed the first 25 minutes", said Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, whose side faces Manchester United in the F.A. Cup semifinals next week. Aguero thinks he's won it in injury time with a header, but Rooney goes right up the other end with a fantastic solo goal to level the scores.
