The Greatest Team in Premier League History?

In what was a season totally dominated by Manchester City, largely thanks to the brilliance of Pep Guardiola, the 2017/18 edition of the Premier League was somewhat one-sided when it came to the title race.

Pep Guardiola's record-breaking side looked like missing out on an historic win on the south coast before substitute Jesus lobbed home to secure a 1-0 success with nearly the final kick of the game.

"We broke the record, 100 points is something special".

The 24-year-old Ederson joined from Benfica on a six-year deal in the last offseason and has been one of City's key players in its record-breaking title triumph with his shot-stopping and distribution.

The Premier League prides itself on being the most competitive in the world and points to Leicester's 2016 title triumph at preseason odds of 5,000-1 as the ultimate evidence. "The players suffered. Southampton are a physical team, so many people defending deep".

"I want to share this manager award with all the other managers and I hope Sir Alex will be here to share it with us", said Guardiola.

He settled instantly into the squad and kept 17 clean sheets across the course of the Premier League season as his team recorded the best campaign in the league's history.

D'Antoni believes the 6-foot-10 Capela's ability to switch on guards as well as defend in the paint will be a key in this series. Game Two will be Wednesday night in Houston . "I think our guys, they are taking the challenge and they're embracing it".

"The first marker for lots of teams - probably 14, with maybe Everton on the edge of that category - is first things first, let's collect a team that can stay in (the Premier League)". "It's four competitions, we need new faces to compete with the guys from this season".

"It´s not the time to talk of next season".

Espirito Santo won Championship manager of the year, Shrewsbury's Paul Hurst scooped the League One prize and Coleman won the League Two trophy.

"We have the most points ever and with the competition you have with all the big teams it is very tough".

Defensive resilience and intelligent spells in possession had seen the Saints go close to getting a deserved point from the match, but Gabriel Jesus struck late to snatch the win for City.

However, Hughes continued his record of never being relegated as a manager by turning around Southampton's form and guiding them to safety; they ended the season in 17th, three points clear of the relegation places.

But after 3-0 it was the first few minutes in the season which I could really enjoy, and someone told me then that it's 3-0 at Newcastle and I thought "OK, it's done".
