The Greatest Team in Premier League History?


But which Premier League stars made most passes in the 2017/18 campaign?

Pep Guardiola had one word for his Manchester City side after they capped a title-winning season with a dramatic late victory over Southampton: "magnificent". While there is no doubting their quality, they have benefitted from a weak field in the Premier League.

Former Manchester United junior Eamon Dunphy insists champions Manchester City are overrated.

At the other end, West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and Swansea were relegated, each of them trying a change of manager but failing to survive as all three promoted sides - Newcastle, Brighton and Huddersfield - avoided the immediate drop back into the Championship.

City clinched their third title in seven years and Guardiola's first at the club, with a record points, wins and goals total in the 2017/2018 season. They scored the most points (100), most goals (106), recorded the most wins (32), and won the league by the biggest margin (19 points). "It's massive. One hundred points is magnificent", BBC Sport quotes Guardiola as saying.

Could Max Verstappen have won the race? "Lewis was solidly in the lead in Melbourne and suddenly he was behind the Ferrari". You saw that it worked out for [Daniel] Ricciardo and Verstappen in Shanghai, I think this is what they were thinking.

Manchester City broke 5 Premier League records this season.

Already elected as the PFA's Player of the Year and Football Writers' Association's Player of the Year, Mohamed Salah has won the hearts of every football fan across the world this season. "The team is very good together and that's why it's been so special".

"I don't usually win awards because it's the fellow managers who vote for it", Guardiola added.

"But the motivation was never to get back on the horse, so to speak". And Jesus seemed the most likely man to do it. City started the match without an out-and-out striker but whereas it has worked for them in the past, they needed the introduction of Jesus on the hour mark to step up their threat. I can say to my son that I played with the best African player ever.

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 2016-17, the 24-year-old quickly established himself as a pivotal figure in City's dominant title charge.
