Man City boss Pep Guardiola fears Liverpool title threat next season

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he is happy with the progress made by Kyle Walker but feels the defender can improve even further.

City have broken many league-records this season, and they will have their eyes set on this one too. Midfielders Mario Lemina and Steven Davis are both carrying knocks.

Saints' vastly superior goal difference means even defeat to Manchester City at St Mary's on Sunday is unlikely to threaten their survival now. With Saints' full-backs Cedric Soares and Ryan Bertrand often keen to push on, the former Schalke player can exploit space in behind them. The two will be tasked with stifling the City midfield axis from getting a hold in the game. And spearheading the attack for the South Coast club will be Englishman Charlie Austin.

Sergio Aguero is the only injury concern for the visitors.

Here's the full television schedule for Sunday's slate of games.

That would mean Ederson Moraes returns in goal for the champions, with Chilean worldwide Claudio Bravo making way.

Newcastle thrash Chelsea 3 - 0 in epic Premier League clash
Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has said the departure of the team's former Technical Director Mike Emenalo made the season hard for the Blues.

Swansea were bottom of the Premier League and five points adrift of safety when Carvalhal was appointed at the end of December following his departure from Sheffield Wednesday a few days earlier.

In the middle of the park, Fernandinho will assume duties as the defensive anchor to shield the back four. Reed has also blundered when it comes to managers - he bowed to pressure from fans and players as he axed Claude Puel (who had delivered a top-eight finish and a League Cup final), and he replaced him with Mauricio Pellegrino, who never seemed truly comfortable in the job. It's similar to when we speak with Raz [Raheem Sterling] and Leroy [Sane]. Expect the front three to cause all sorts of problems to the Saints' defence.

FC's Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop go toe-to-toe in predicting the final slate of Premier League fixtures. The added desire from the hosts, coupled with Stoke's atrocious away record, means the Swans are favourites to win despite their own inability to score goals of late.

Not just class but class apart.

The 54-year-old is firmly in the frame to assume a permanent Saints role however, and insisted he has felt no pressure to restore his managerial reputation by ensuring Southampton's survival.

"You need to be conscious of the situation in games of different significance so it's not something we will ignore".
