  1. Goodnight!

    And so another monster day of football comes to an end.

    Catch up on anything you've missed here or just watch MOTD now.

    See you all tomorrow!

  2. Post update

    Well, we'll see what happens on that front I guess.

  3. 'Deserve to be in Champions League'

    FT: Brighton 0-5 Man City

    Manchester City

    More from Pep Guardiola: "We've qualified for the Champions League which was the minimum requirement for this club. And these players have done it for the last six or seven years.

    "We won it on the pitch and hopefully on Monday Uefa will allow these players to play next season.

    "They deserve to be in the Champions League."

  4. 'Pleased with everything'

    FT: Brighton 0-5 Man City

    Manchester City

    Pep Gurdiola

    Man City manager Pep Guardiola speaking to Sky Sports: "I was pleased with everything tonight - the result and the levels we reached. We are now at a good level and are ready to play the last games of the Premier League and in the Champions League.

    "We've forgotten the Southampton result (1-0 defeat last Sunday) as we played incredibly well there. Football sometimes is strange. We just didn't score there. We're a team who create a lot of chances and today we converted them."

    On Raheem Sterling: "For a long time, he has been getting better. His finishing, his shooting and that's because he trains hard. It's good for us to have him at the end of the season."

    On Gabriel Jesus scoring twice in a week after no goals since February: "He fought well. Before he scored, we had been delighted with his performances. Tonight he didn't just get his goal, he made lots of good chances too. It's unbelievable that he's scored."

  5. 'A tough ask'

    FT: Brighton 0-5 Man City

    Brighton & Hove Albion

    Brighton boss Graham Potter speaking to Sky Sports: "Man City were too good tonight. We were well beaten by the better team. First half, we were in it a bit and had a couple of opportunities but they have got players that can hurt you everywhere.

    "We are disappointed with how we petered out in the second half but it's a big ask to play Liverpool and Man City in the space of four days.

    "The manner and timing of the second goal was disappointing. To get in at 1-0 having had a few moments was the aim but that was a killer one. We tried to get a foothold but we couldn't find the answers to them.

    "Better teams than us will find it difficult to live with Man City. It's no disgrace from our perspective but we want to put it to bed as quickly as we can and get as many points as we can from the last three games.

    "Our job is to improve our team and players as best we can. We've done some things quite well this season but clearly got a lot more to do as well."

  6. Post update

    I said Sterling is closing in on the 100 mark for Premier League goals- he's actually the closest to reaching that landmark of any current players.

  7. 'Got to make the goals count'

    FT: Brighton 0-5 Man City

    Manchester City

    Raheem Sterling goal

    Man City's Raheem Sterling speaking to Sky Sports: "We were disappointed last week to lose at Southampton. We created chances but couldn’t finish. It's great to bounce back with an away win.

    "The problem we’ve had this season is creating a lot of chances and last season we finished them. This season we’ve not had the luck but we’re growing and doing things right."

    On the best goalscoring season of his career (27 for Man City so far): "The most important thing for me is to add goals to the team. We want to win the FA Cup and the Champions League otherwise these goals don’t mean anything. I need to make sure they count."

    On the bizarre third goal: "I tried to flick it over his head and I saw the keeper come out and tried to head it in."

    He had a huge grin on his face as he said that.

  8. The 100 club in sight

    Raheem Sterling is up to 83 Premier League goals now - one behind Cristiano Ronaldo and level with Chris Sutton and Olivier Giroud.

  9. Post update

    Brighton 0-5 Manchester City

    I like this stat - 17% of the goals conceded by Brighton this season have been scored by Manchester City.

  10. Post update

    Don't bring a Charity Shield to a trophy off. You're not David Moyes.

    Gareth: @Steven McNamara - typical Liverpool fan. Win the league after 30 years - and City are 'hyped up' after two league wins in a row...not to mention domestic trebles and quads. #realitycheck

    Matt: City a country mile behind Liverpool? Liverpool have certainly been better than city in league but city have bested them in the other four competitions in which they've competed (champions league, fa cup, league cup and community shield)

  12. Post update

    Since Raheem Sterling joined Manchester City only Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero have scored more than his four hat-tricks.

    Surprised? I was.

    Al, Heywood: To Stephen at 21.45. Must know City are not going to go away any time soon. Bring on next season.

    Alan: As good as they are neither Liverpool or Man City would live with Pep's Barcelona. Messi in his prime would have had a field day with both of them!!

  14. Post update

    That win secures City's final position as second in the table by the way.

    Will they be in the Champions League next year? That depends on whether their appeal against a two-year ban from European club competitions has been successful.

    They'll find out on Monday.

  15. Post update

    Bit harsh to blame Vincent Kompany.

    Keith: If Man City had VVD in their side they would be champions.

    Jason, Derby: Two words why city haven't challenged this year: Vincent Kompany.

    Dan Bell: Bournemouth should accept relegation now, this Man City team will smash them 6 or 7 nil next week

  17. Post update

    Brighton 0-5 Manchester City

    Raheem Sterling has the matchball to take home, Pep playfully snatches it from him but he's got it back now. Always wonder what players really do with those.

    In the loft with the Christmas decs.


    Brighton 0-5 Manchester City

    Manchester City put on a clinic there. Excellent attacking football swept the Seagulls away.
