Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Nicolas Otamendi, David Silva and Kyle Walker have all been included after Pep Guardiola's side clinched the Premier League title with five games to spare.

Meanwhile, West Ham's chances of a shock win at Arsenal will be boosted by Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger admitting his side's focus will be on a Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid four days later.

But Guardiola says he will also begin analysing his squad and making changes before City begin their title defence in August.

So City's "core XI" this season cost £397.5m to buy and with wages City's spend will be £667.5m.

Guardiola has no intention of easing up over the remaining five games of the season, insisting they would give him a good indication of whether his squad was capable of defending their crown next term.

"I don't know how we are going to react, even myself after winning the Premier League".

Salah has been in an impressive form since returning to the Premier League last summer.

Lee stayed busy on top as the crowd chanted, "Stand them up!" The Jersey boy got back on track in his home state. Barboza was simply unable to handle Lee's wrestling, which Lee used to set up some mean ground and pound.

"We are going to speak with the club at the end of the season", he told reporters. I think to be a solid team, and for Europe to start watching what we have done, it is not just about one season. He also played down the importance of the records his team could break, but admitted it could be a good motivator for his team to keep concentration.

Guardiola has not yet spoken publicly about the title win but will hold a news conference to preview Sunday's game against Swansea on Friday.

Championship champions-elect Wolves were unsurprisingly the best-represented side in the PFA Championship team of the year with three players. "The day to day here in the club is very light, very nice, so I think this makes us feel that the season was really special".

"It's four or five weeks. What I felt this season, it's something fantastic". In the training sessions we will insist there are still games to play - (out of) respect for the five opponents and the rest of the competition.

Pep said his intention has never been to change English football, although some would argue that he already has.
