The alternative awards of the Premier League season

Posted May 14, 2018

They ended their season beating Leicester 5-4 under the Wembley Arch.

City has set competition records for wins, goals scored and points acquired during their march to glory in 2017-2018, although little of its usual panache was in evidence during a listless opening half at St Mary's.

The title race has been all over bar the shouting for some time now. "I am addicted and I don't think that can be cured", Wenger said.

Guardiola's team have been focused on rewriting the record books since clinching the English title nearly a month ago and they added one last landmark achievement on the final day of the season. Chelsea won the league last year with 93 points, but could only manage 70 this year. In this campaign, Sean Dyche's men won seven away games and accrued 28 points.

Naby Keita's arrival from RB Leipzig for £52.75m will add extra dynamism and depth to a midfield decimated by injuries in the latter part of this season.

"I thought we played very well today", Hughes told Sky Sports after the match.

But, sadly for Chelsea, their failure to make the final of either European cup, coupled with their fifth-place finish, means they will definitely be playing in the Europa League next season even if Liverpool beat Real Madrid.

The most obvious difference between Guardiola's City and other recent champions is that City have a stronger squad, but there is also an important stylistic difference. "A team is individual players and individual players can always improve", Pep...

Extending that form out over the course of 38 games is now the challenge for the German to deliver a first league title since 1990.

But their game is not all about strangling and picking off the other team, it's much more positive than that.

No Premier League clubs will have to worry about that, though, with all four sides going straight in the group stages. I would imagine the club has probably had discussions since I walked through the door over what they would do.
