PFA Premier League Team of the 2017/18 Season

Adjust Comment Print

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, now leading the Premier League scoring chart on 30 goals, accompanies Agüero and Tottenham's Harry Kane, who has scored 26 league goals, in that attacking line-up.

They have five more games left in the league, and if they win at least three more, the club will go on to break Chelsea's previous record of scoring 30 goals in one season.

Life is good at City at the moment with their Champions League heartbreak at the hands of Liverpool a mere blip in their dominant season.

"They dominated this season and I think it's right to give them compliments", Conte said ahead of Chelsea's trip to Burnley on Thursday.

It was a home defeat and it ensured the league title for their noisy neighbours. They didn't move well without the ball, they didn't move fast.

United's current points-per-game ratio of 2.18 would have won the Premier League title in nine of the previous 26 seasons, trumping Ferguson's champions of 1992/93, 1995/96, 1996/97, 1998/99, 2000/01 and 2010/11, in addition to 1994/95 victor Blackburn, Arsenal in 1997/98 and Leicester in 2015/16.

"They did a great job this season, on and off the pitch". Also, Guardiola had reduced the overall age of the team to build a highly energetic and spirited squad. "He was playing for his future, after all but things turned out perfectly because we won everything and it wasn't just that we won everything, it was the way we did it". "We need to finish in the best possible position in the league and reach the final of the FA Cup". But we must have the will to fight, the desire to take this target.

"Don't forget that in England, you start to play in November before the global break and play until March, said Conte". Guardiola has a philosophy of "positional play" in which no more than two players are allowed in a vertical space, and no more than three in a horizontal area.

Xavi went on to add that there were significant doubts about the 47-year-old's ability to coach at the highest level when he was appointed Barca manager in 2008, but that Guardiola has proven everyone one wrong since.
