Manchester United now sit in second place in the Premier League, five points clear of rivals Liverpool but having ceded the English Premier League to their cross-town rivals Manchester City.

"We wanted to win today so that we can get the record of 96 points at home when we get the trophy in front of our people next week", City manager Pep Guardiola said.

"Congratulations to City, their players, their staff and their manager because they are champions and they are by far the best team in this league". If he was cautioned a second time, he would have been sent off, and City would have had to play the entire second half with only 10 men. In the process, they passed the 100 league goals for the season milestone and also equalled the Premier League record of 30 victories in a single campaign. It is not easy to break records, so we will have to play well.

With three games still remaining, the Blues will have to focus and determination to see this season out right. With a couple of losses, West Ham might get relegated. But Guardiola will demand that his side don't ease up before the season is over, with his side st to face Huddersfield, Brighton and Southampton for a second time this campaign. De Bruyne sent over a low cross which Adrian could only deflect towards Hammers defender Declan Rice, whose panicked clearance hit Zabaleta and trickled into the net.

Guardiola was asked whether he felt he had to add to his squad in the summer, given that they have been so dominant in England this year.

Not bad going, but inevitably, City already have an eye on next season and the transfer market.

It was probably City's scruffiest goal of the season, but nevertheless it brought up their ton.

Using the average scores for April, they have put together a best possible Premier League XI in a 4-4-2 formation. We will find out in the future.

And Guardiola is planning a special treat for his team in preparation, although he will likely need little attention from a stylist himself.
