Salah scoops Premier League's Player of the Year prize

Share

The Brazil global joined Pep Guardiola's side from Benfica for £35million last June and, in stark contrast to Claudio Bravo's errant efforts between the posts in 2016-2017, the 24-year-old quickly established himself as a pivotal figure in City's dominant title charge. 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.

Aston Villa will host Middlesborough Tuesday (2:45 p.m. EDT), and the two winners will play at Wembley May 26 (12 p.m. EDT) for promotion to the Premier League.

City passed Chelsea's previous Premier League best of 95 points by beating Brighton and Hove Albion 3-1 in their penultimate match.

Manchester City won the league by 19 points and scored 106 goals, both new records, and finished with a plus-79 goal difference.

The top four - Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool - are to appear in the next edition of the UEFA Champions League.

"We all knew if we get 100 points it would be something so special and it is probably very hard to manage again", the Belgium midfielder said after Gabriel Jesus's last gasp goal brought up the milestone.

Alderman: Time and resources in Greitens case contributing to caseload back up

The 2018-19 Premier League season kicks off on August 11.

Manchester United's Michael Carrick was another signing off at Old Trafford where the home side beat Watford 1-0 to consolidate their hold on second place. "I think it's a record that will stay long". "We had to defend bravely and make some big challenges and saves, but we made them and we came through the game". Jesus's late strike ensured City took local rivals Manchester United's record winning margin of 18 points in the 1999/2000 season.

But Juergen Klopp's men know even if they fall short in Kiev, they will be back in the UCL next season as they blew Brighton away.

Whether City can improve next season remains to be seen, given they have only dropped 14 points from a possible 114.

"I would imagine the club have had discussions, not this week or the last week, probably ever since I walked through the door in terms of what they would do".

"That is going to happen. Then we'll try to come back stronger than this season". "That will not be important".
