Klopp happy to discuss 'exciting' Champions League final after top-four finish

The 2016 champions Leicester collapsed from 81 points to 44 the following season, a 37-point drop that sounds like it should have been the worst title defence of all time, yet in fact was scarcely even the worst title defence in 12 months.

The curtain has come down on another Premier League season.

"This season they were a big contender and they will be again next season".

United have been good enough for second best to City this season, but have failed to enthral their supporters with many unhappy at manager Jose Mourinho's brand of football.

City's 100-point haul comes after they set a new Premier League points record by beating Brighton in midweek, taking them past the total set by Chelsea in 2004-05. A lot has been made of the money spent by Pep Guardiola in acquiring this squad, but when you see the the numbers his team have hit this season, you can't argue with his coaching ability.

A state-of-the-art new 62,000 capacity stadium awaits Tottenham next season, but there isn't much time to settle in with the pressure on to turn four years of progress under Mauricio Pochettino into silverware.

"I thought we put in a fantastic, professional performance, which is what I demanded before the game and credit to the guys".

Naby Keita's arrival from RB Leipzig for £52.75m will add extra dynamism and depth to a midfield decimated by injuries in the latter part of this season. Chelsea won the league last year with 93 points, but could only manage 70 this year.

It was also the end of an era in England's top flight, with Arsene Wenger taking charge of his final game as Arsenal manager after 22 seasons. I'm sure I'll get some kind of real indication next week.

The game appeared to heading for a draw but, six years to the day since Sergio Aguero's last-second title-winning goal for City against QPR, Jesus found space in the final moments to lift the ball over McCarthy and spark mayhem among the travelling fans.
