“It was a pleasure to play against all of them and hopefully do big, big battles again to win an incredible title.”

Guardiola led City to 98 points which saw them become the first team since rivals Man United to successfully defend the title.

The Spaniard also became only the third manager in Prem history to defend the title, following Jose Mourinho and Sir Alex Ferguson.

City, who beat Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final, face Watford in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
