With the top-four race complete, Steve Nicol explains what Man United, Tottenham, and Liverpool will need to keep up with Man City next season. Pep Guardiola has no words for Man City's record breaking season after they became the first team to hit 100 points in the Premier League.

Giovinco had just cut Toronto's deficit to one with an 89th-minute penalty and while running back to the center circle momentarily put his hand to the face of the Revoltion's Wilfried Zahibo, and referee Mark Geiger issued the Italian the first red card of his career...
