Pep Guardiola: 'Liverpool will challenge for Premier League title next season'

Champions Manchester City have broken the Premier League record for wins, points and goals this season and set another landmark by becoming the first side in English top flight history to reach 100 points as Gabriel Jesus struck a dramatic late victor to beat Southampton 1-0. But their Champions League campaign was ended by Liverpool at the quarter-final stage and Hughes feels they are still some way short of the sport's super powers, including rivals United.

Swansea City have been relegated from the Premier League on the final day of the season. Liverpool, the way they play and the quality of their players - not just up front, I think van Dijk has helped them a lot to be more consistent in the defensive department.

"He is always positive and creating good environments in his clubs".

City finish their record-breaking season at Southampton, while Liverpool host Brighton needing a point for a Champions League place.

'OK, we are 25 points in front so it's hard to say he was hard (to play against) in the end - but he was because they beat us.

'Next season will be the same, like [Manchester] United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham'.

Some observers didn't even expect the Sixers, a league laughingstock during their rebuild, to reach the playoffs this season. As souvenirs go, taking pride in that is unlikely. "It's a free group", Brown said. "It ends up the way it always ends up.

"It is still early days for them in terms of their standing in European and world football", said the Welshman, whose side are practically assured of safety.

Asked if he would welcome Southampton moving quickly to secure a new long-term boss, replied: "I think it's important for the club that they do that".

He inspired an instant revival with five wins in his opening nine league games to climb clear of the bottom three. Sometimes we look more for the sides, but after [an opposition] attack they are more direct.

Even though it's been nearly two years since the Catalan boss took charge of Manchester City, players continue to be interviewed to answer questions about him, and this was the case of Danilo this week. "I wish him all the best in the final". It's similar to when we speak with Raz [Raheem Sterling] and Leroy [Sane]. We have done that all season.

City landed the title easily this season.
