Premier League 2017-18: 10 things you didn't know about this season

  • Manchester City hit 100 points with late Gabriel Jesus winner at Southampton

Showing confidence to play from the back and to keep his discipline intact for the entire season, Otamendi has easily been the most improved player for City this season and is certainly one of the best defenders in the league at the moment.

Pep Guardiola's magnificent Manchester City side rounded off their superb season today by becoming the first side ever to reach 100 Premier League points after they beat Southampton 1-0 this weekend.

The upcoming Premier League season will start on August 11, 2018 and finish on May 19, 2019, giving footballers - and fans - barely a month's rest between the end of the World Cup and the start of a new campaign of the English top-flight. Most points? Most wins?

Taliban attacks Farah city in west Afghanistan, kills dozens
Provincial governor Basir Salangi said that Taliban attacked Farah city around 2am local time and suffered heavy casualties. The province, which also borders the opium-rich Taliban heartland of Helmand province, has key smuggling routes into Iran.

"But during the game we were focused, and at the end, an excellent pass from Kevin [De Bruyne] and an fantastic finish from Gabriel made the difference and achieved that record".

Liverpool's prolific striker Mohamed Salah, who scored record breaking 32 goals in 38-match English Premier League 2017-18 season, has won the golden boot award. "In the Premier League 100 points is a massive achievement".

Guardiola's style is now implanted on City, his first title in England heralding the promise of more to come, especially when they strengthen the team in the close season.

Vittorio Colao passes on baton at Vodafone
The news came as Vodafone announced its results for the year ended March 31, 2018. Following the news, shares in Vodafone fell nearly 4 per cent.

"Now is the time to enjoy what we've done this season", said Guardiola as he spoke to crowds at the end of City's bus tour.

Ultimately, a spectacular 94th minute goal by Gabriel Jesus that sealed City's 1-0 win and secured their landmark 100-point season proved irrelevant to the Saints because Swansea's defeat by Stoke City meant they were safe anyway.

It would appear that the younger Salah wasn't quite ready back then and didn't gain the trust of ex-mentor Jose Mourinho, but the forward seems in a much better place now under Jurgen Klopp.

Giuliani 'quite certain' Trump didn't know about Cohen deals
After law school, he joined AT&T as an attorney in 1993 and later ascended the ranks of the company's massive lobbying operations. The payments were made to Essential Consultants, a company created by Cohen one month before the 2016 US presidential election.

"We ended up losing a game I thought we possibly should have won but the bigger picture, clearly, was to make sure we got the job done". "I know you need some luck to score these type of goals but we tried". Hence, a befitting win in what was the final game of his 22-year reign at the club was thoroughly deserved. The away side looked on course for victory, leading 5-4 going in to the last five minutes but Jason Holt's sending-off left them vulnerable and Jamie Maclaren completed his hat-trick to rescue a point for Hibs.
