EPL: Conte reveals what Guardiola, Man City could do from next season

Jurgen Klopp Pep Guardiola

Playmaker Kevin De Bruyne and his Manchester City team-mates made up nearly half of the Professional Footballers' Association's Premier League team of the year revealed on Wednesday.

He became the first player to win the Premier League Player of the Month award three times in one season when he was recognised last week.

Manchester United and Liverpool in second and third position in the English Premier League table respectively, have only Mohamed Salah and David de Gea in the team.

"Don't forget, this league is not simple, it's very tough to win, but the way they did this was incredible and for this reason it's right to give them our compliment".

Chelsea could also miss out on Champions League qualification as they are eight points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, although the Blues do have a game in hand.

Continuing his day of interviews, Walker also told talkSport that he joined City to emulate two of his footballing icons: "A big reason why I signed with Manchester City was because I wanted to work with the manager of this calibre".

'They were very well prepared for the season. They have the possibility to do this in this moment. And they want to invest, to improve the situation.

Conte is focused on the present with Chelsea, however, as they battle for a top-four finish and an FA Cup final place. It's impossible to achieve what we have achieved without your unbelievable effort. "We must have the desire to try and take this target".

"We have a really important game against Burnley, a really strong team".

"Tomorrow Emerson will play. he's ready in the physical and tactical aspect", Conte said.

Belgium midfielder De Bruyne has been one of the stand out players in City's record-breaking campaign, but he knows Guardiola was the mastermind behind their triumph.
