Pep Guardiola: Manchester City can't afford to spend £300m every year

Winning four back to back manager of the month awards, holding nearly all the positive Premier League records and having all top four assist kings for the season in his squad just shows the free-flowing attacking display we have witnessed for the last ten months.

Victory for Liverpool meant it didn't matter what fifth-placed Chelsea did at Newcastle, but they failed to put any sort of pressure on the Champions League finalists by succumbing limply to a 3-0 defeat at St. James's Park.

Defensively they're poor, as the Champions League proved.

The former Barcelona boss admits the Premier League is a tough league but argues their failures to impress in Europe in recent years shows they have a long way to go before the Spanish league.

"Now is the time to enjoy what we've done this season", he said.

1 - Guardiola is the first Spanish manager to win the Premier League.

GETTY Pep Guardiola guided Manchester City to the Premier League title

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. He was being tipped for a big future in the game by the Baggies and made the move to Liverpool in December 2015.

When Mohamed Salah arrived at Liverpool from Roma for £36 million last summer, expectations were not exactly lofty. The last 10 years nobody has won back-to-back so that is the challenge'. As Jose Mourinho pointed out in interviews earlier this season, the Chelsea (under both Conte and Mourinho) and Leicester teams that won these titles were "super-defensive teams" with a killer counter-attack.

Guardiola, who joined in the summer of 2016, has just overseen the best season in the club's history, winning the English Premier League title in record-breaking fashion.

England manager Gareth Southgate will name his World Cup squad later this week, and there was plenty of encouragement for Southgate as his three of his strikers were on target.

The financial pressures of building the stadium at a reported £1 billion cost could also hamper Pochettino's progress, although a third consecutive season of Champions League football should ease some of the burden.

"This was the ideal final of the season, of a very exciting season, and a very intense season". It's about dominating games and expressing their own potential, and, mentally, creative football is less draining than the super-defensive school of winning by tight margins.

Rafa Benitez could 'walk away' from Newcastle contract
The Sun: Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino will commit to the club for one more year amid interest from Chelsea. He mentioned that he would give us each final penny so hopefully he'll do it and I am assured that he'll.
