Guardiola to discuss future at Man City at end of season

Manchester City secured the Premier League title on April, 15 as Manchester United lost 1-0 to West Brom and the top four teams are set to qualify for the group stage of next season's Champions League.

The only mar on the day for City was that their fans invaded the pitch at the end in celebration, with a flare being let off.

However, their performance during a 5-0 victory over Swansea showed that Guardiola's side are coping well with little to play for in the remainder of the campaign.

This 29th victory takes Guardiola's team to 90 points, six from breaking Chelsea's record Premier League total of 95. "In football, you always have something to improve, it is never a finished business".

"Maybe you can say we were one of the best teams in one season".

Fabian Delph and David Silva played a lovely one-two on the left flank to cut open the Swansea defence, with Delph finding a well run Raheem Sterling in the six-yard box to tap in City's second.

Kevin de Bruyne scored a sensational 25-yard drive before Bernardo Silva pounced on the rebound of Gabriel Jesus' saved penalty. Jesus made amends with a looping header from substitute Yaya Toure's pass.

The home team lost two early wickets in the chase but AB de Villiers turned up with an aggressive inning. Delhi Daredevils have been one of the worst performers this season and they have done it consistently.

"The stats are good and that is why we won the league five games before the end".

And the Swans must take on fifth-placed Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium next week before hosting relegation-threatened Stoke and Southampton in a tough run-in.

That is why he feels that chasing Chelsea's Premier League record of 95 points in a season, set in 2004/05, is a useful target for City, who are now on 87. There was no acknowledgment of the 68-year-old Frenchman from the stadium announcer and fans only chanted about him in response to taunts from West Ham supporters.

The Spaniard, who has led City to the Premier League title with five matches to spare, is tied to the club for only one more year.

Along with De Bruyne, David Silva has completed the playmaking double punch that Guadiola has preferred since the days of Xavi and Andres Iniesta at Barcelona.

"In the past when I won the league early, the next few games were not good". But with a second headed chance, this time more hard from Toure's cross, he was able to head over the Polish goalkeeper to make it 5-0.

"Swansea have had good results under Carlos Carvalhal against Arsenal and Liverpool and that's why it was so important to focus, play well and score".
