Man United beat City to top of Premier League table

Liverpool, meanwhile, have still not secured a place in the Champions League next season - despite reaching this year's final.

"My view is we are in the situation to get the job done against a very good team, the champions of England, and it was always going to be a hard game for us".

"But I think the idea is quite similar - we both want to try to win the game for ourselves and they don't wait for what will happen".

Walker joined City from Tottenham for £50m last summer and the England global secured his first piece of silverware as a professional after helping Guardiola's side to the Premier League title. "In training Pep always seeks to make clear the solutions for each move, regardless of position, they are standard moves, which helps you a lot when improvising".

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is angry youngsters Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz will not receive Premier League winner's medals.

"I think come next season they'll be very much title contenders and I think probably all of those (top six) clubs are hoping Man City don't have the type of season next season that they had this season".

Rain could continue until Sunday morning; more coming next week
The same high temperature is predicted for Sunday , but the chance of showers and thunderstorms grows as the weekend continues. Expect a similar day compared ot Saturday on Sunday , with scattered showers and thunderstorms again off and on Mother's Day .

The Saints will be without defender Jan Bednarek, who picked up a head injury in the club's midweek win over Swansea.

No team in English top-flight history has ever managed a three-figure tally of points over a season, but that milestone is within Manchester City's grasp. At stake is positioning, especially from spots 10 to 15, while we'll also find out who's going to be relegated alongside West Brom and Stoke City.

David Silva spent some of this week in his native Spain for family reasons, so his participation is in doubt, while striker Sergio Aguero remains sidelined.

"They are champions. It doesn't matter they don't have medals".

Manchester United are guaranteed second while Tottenham have guaranteed a top-four finish. 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.

The ever-present duo of Cedric Soares and Ryan Bertrand will take up the wing-back slots on the right and the left sides respectively and look to curtail the threat from the visitors' wingers.
