Wenger farewells the Emirates, Manchester City crowned champions

Manchester City lifted the Premier League title yesterday, but manager Pep Guardiola warned their status as champions will make next season more hard.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, and Sead Kolasinac were the other goal scorers for Arsenal in Sunday's game.

He named a strong starting line-up that included all the regulars; Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane to name four.

But the Pep Guardiola side have already been confirmed Premier League champions on April 15 after second-placed Manchester United lost 1-0 to relegation-bound West Brom.

This is Guardiola's first league title since joining City in the summer of 2016, having previously won three with both Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

His eight seasons saw 229 appearances being made.

Victory will take City past the record points tally, the 95 recorded by Chelsea in 2004/05, while two goals will better the mark of 103 scored by Chelsea in 2009/10.

After a quiet start to the second half, Guardiola chose to tweak his side in search of the breakthrough on the hour-mark by bringing on Benjamin Mendy in place of Fabian Delph. "This team deserves it more than ever".

"We've had many players who have been on and off, and that has had no impact on the season whatsoever".

The Terriers fell victims to their nerves as the Toffees prevailed in an attritional game at the John Smith's stadium.

In fact, Huddersfield have been goalless in 13 Premier League away trips this season - a joint-record (also Norwich City 1994-95, Southampton 1998-99 and Middlesbrough 2002-03).

Huddersfield have failed to score in 20 of their 36 Premier League games this season.
