Man City power past Swansea in search of records

Guardiola insists that the Premier League should be City's no.1 priority next season

Having already won a record 18 straight games this season, City is within reach of more milestones. Its current goal difference of plus 73 is two better than the all-time best, Chelsea's 71 in 2009-10.

There was also at least one flare let off among the fans as security moved hurriedly to ensure players could leave the field safely, with City captain Vincent Kompany and French global Benjamin Mendy the last players to leave for the safety of the dressing rooms.

In truth, he looked rusty, but that is to be expected of a player who has missed so much of the season.

Guardiola has little doubt who should be crowned the victor in this evening's ceremony, telling reporters after the Swansea victory: "I know my opinion about these awards so if he doesn't win, congratulations to the guy who is going to win but from my point of view when you are analysing nine months or 10 months then there was no player better than him". "In football, you always have something to improve, it is never a finished business".

Raheem Sterling set up David Silva for the opening goal after 12 minutes, with the England winger netting the second four minutes later from close range after Fabian Delph cut the ball across.

City were two-up at the break thanks to strikes from David Silva and Sterling, his 23rd goal of the season. Jesus made amends with a looping header from substitute Yaya Toure's pass.

"Swansea have lost just three games with Carlos (Carvalhal) as manager".

"Zero. Absolutely zero", he said of the impact the City result would have on the next four games. And fans only chanted about the only manager of the club many have ever known in response to taunts from West Ham supporters.

The hosts only came to life in the second half.

Marko Arnautovic equalised 13 minutes later.

Arsenal's priority is the Europa League, with the semifinal first leg against Atletico Madrid on Thursday.

Stoke's grip on its Premier League status loosened significantly with a 1-1 home draw against Burnley on Sunday.

"What we had done we had done, (but) that helped us to (think), 'We have done it once we can do it again, and the others won't have more energy.' So, when you have to do five metres, you just make three".
