Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed that he has been delighted with Bernardo Silva's form during the 2017-18 campaign.

'I can give you the latest news from doctor (Ramon) Cugat in Barcelona and it's going perfectly'.

Guardiola also branded Premier League rules that require a player to have made five appearances to qualify for a winner's medal as ridiculous, with young midfielders Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz now one short of that target. "It's something nobody ever did before, and we want to do it".

Aguero's relationship with Guardiola has been the subject of some debate after reports of clashes between the pair in the past.

"It was a very special moment [breaking the record]".

"The club, chairman and myself want him to stay a long time, renew his contract - but we are going on holiday in a few days", said Guardiola. To be part of that is something special and I'm very happy about it.

"They are all the time training with us all the time so maybe they'll be in the line-up".

Washington Capitals Win Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals
The Capitals are 5-1 in their last 6 Conference Finals games, 2-5 in their last 7 Sunday games and 21-7 in their last 28 overall. I think if you bottled up all the bad things in those first 10 games, it would be half of what we did in one game last night.

It would cap an already memorable season for Silva following his move from Ligue 1 champions Monaco in the summer. "I will work as hard as I can to be able to help the team even more".

The 23-year-old has reportedly made a decision to delay talks over a new contract with City until after the World Cup.

For the best final day party look no further than Huddersfield Town, where fans will be celebrating their great escape after back-to-back draws at Manchester City and Chelsea salvaged their top-flight place.

He said: "I say not too much".

Toure, 34, is leaving City this summer after an outstanding eight years at the club, a period in which he was won three Premier League titles and four domestic cups.

He said: "It wouldn't be my best - in Monaco I think 11 was my best - but, of course, I'll try to do it. If there is one team in this league who have the capability of scoring a lot of goals, it's Man City", warned Southampton manager Mark Hughes. We will try to win.
