"The Brighton game, we will focus on winning and Yaya", Guardiola said, as quoted by City's official twitter account. There have been reports of him going to China, as is becoming a more common career move once players are over the hill, but according to Manchester Evening News, he doesn't want to leave England.

Ivory Coast global Toure, who joined City from Barcelona for a fee of about £24m in 2010, signed a new one-year contract in June 2017. "Where we are in this moment is thanks to what this guy has done".

"We played in the FA Cup last season against Huddersfield and it was so tough, and we know how complicated it was to beat them at Huddersfield this season, in the last minutes", he said.

Guardiola will finally get his hands on the Premier League trophy following the league game with struggling Huddersfield on Sunday.

He is likely to claim the spotlight by facing Brighton at the Etihad next Wednesday, but his contribution during City's rise to the top merits more than a wave to the fans on his final home appearance.

"He will not stay this season", Guardiola confirmed at his press conference. In their last three Premier League games, they have only one victory.

Rondo notably had an altercation with Green early on in the game during a timeout as the duo had to be separated by the referees. Davis is going to have to carry the team on his back but playing at home, that should work in the Pelicans' favor.

For me and many others, it's the greatest season a midfielder has ever conjured it in the history of the Premier League.

As iF that weren't enough, two more goals would take City past Chelsea's record tally of 102 from 2009/10. A win this weekend over Huddersfield will break Chelsea's Premier League record of 95 points in a season.

"We can not forget the period from Roberto Mancini, and especially Manuel Pellegrini, Yaya was the key player".

"It's not about the different competitions, the Premier League is about consistency".

A major component of Manchester City's dominance this season has been Pep Guardiola's positional use of his full-backs in the half-space in order to overload the middle of the pitch and overwhelm teams both in possession and in transition.

Having said all that, I am not expecting much from the visitors and I think that they will lose. "Next season we will try again".
