EPL: Guardiola reveals team that will challenge Man City next season

Swansea City have been relegated after seven years in the Premier League.

However, once that bounce wore off, a lack of firepower cost Carvalhal's men as they finished the season with fewer goals than anyone bar Huddersfield.

As well as winning the most points by an English top-flight side in a single campaign, City's 32nd win broke Tottenham's 57-year-old record for victories in a single top-flight season, BBC reports. I need time to think, talk with my family and friends, we will talk again and then take a decision.

Swansea needed a 10-goal swing - beating Stoke and seeing Southampton hammered by Manchester City - to stay up.

Premier League Champions Manchester City left it late to see off Southampton 1-0 following a last-gasp victor which earned a record points haul in England's top-flight.

They were runaway leaders for most of the season and won the league in style, blowing teams away with their intense and expansive brand of football.

Swansea's relegation from the Premier League was confirmed when already demoted Stoke won 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un also pledged at the inter-Korean summit to close the test site this month. Confirmation of the meeting between the two men came after landmark talks between North and South Korea.

Guardiola's side swept aside nearly all the teams stacked before them during this season's record-breaking title-winning campaign, but the Reds have beaten them in recent meetings.

Salah, who was named EPL Player of the Season earlier on Sunday, netted the goal 26 minutes into the match, and Dejan Lovren added a second goal 14 minutes later.

Pep Guardiola's Sky Blues recorded 32 victories in the league this season. 32!

Chelsea ended the season without even a whimper, and in the Europa League.

They began the second period camped in the hosts' half, albeit continuing to lack a goal threat, epitomised by captain Fernandinho somehow volleying against the scoreboard on the top of the stand from 12 yards out. Arsenal finished sixth with 63 points.

City are due to celebrate their title success on Monday with an open-top bus parade through the streets of Manchester.
