Talking points from the Premier League weekend

"I would just like to see them have a couple more players in the middle of the park with that sort of ability to change a game".

City boss Guardiola hailed his players' mental strength, tipping them to "go like a machine" in the chase for an unprecedented clean sweep of Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup this term.

Guardiola isn't thinking that far ahead just yet and he urged his players to take it one game at a time. The most important thing is the points.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says Sergio Aguero asked to be substituted during the 2-0 win at Fulham - but he hopes his top scorer is not badly hurt.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah helped his team snatch a vital late win against Tottenham at Anfield, but some online were left puzzled at why the Egyptian star appeared to celebrate as if he had scored what was a clear own goal. "The starting eleven is fantastic, beyond that they are very average".

"Jurgen Klopp will pull off the greatest title triumph of the Premier League era, apart from Leicester's 5,000-1 miracle, if he ends 29 years of hurt at Liverpool", he told the Mirror.

There are still 150 "party list" seats in the lower house up for grabs, which is where the popular vote will matter more. The Election Commission has until May 9 to submit official results, after which lawmakers will pick a prime minister.


Despite the incredible record, Liverpool still have a long way to go to match the overall record set by Chelsea, who went an astonishing 86 Premier League games unbeaten at Stamford Bridge.

"We are going to do everything to win".

"They team spent more than £100m in the summer, that is the satisfaction, but we need to keep going, improving and learning". It maybe didn't look likely at times but three points at the end of the day and looking at the league table that's all that matters.

Cardiff were 1-0 up late in their game with Chelsea but Cesar Azpilicueta's equaliser, when clearly in an offside position, seemed to unsettle Neil Warnock's men and it was rather inevitable when Ruben Loftus-Cheek headed home a stoppage time victor. For all the points we have now, we worked really hard.

"They're playing with a nervousness that they'll have to free themselves of in the next six games".

"But we need Kevin, we need of course people like Vincent (Kompany), Phil (Foden), so the next game we're going to make a few changes".
