Pep Guardiola, speaking after Manchester City's 5-0 hammering of Swansea City, insists that the Premier League champions must "keep improving" all the time.

"But from my point of view, when you are analysing nine months or 10 months, there was no player better than him".

"I know my opinion about these awards so, if [De Bruyne] doesn't win, congratulations to the guy who is going to win", Guardiola told a news conference.

City stayed on the front foot, not letting up on a Swansea team who still sit perilously close to the relegation zone.

City won the title a week ago after second-placed Manchester United slipped up, but Guardiola said his side would still chase down milestones in the final weeks of the season.

Of course, there is satisfaction at what he has achieved in his second season with City and pride in the way he has done it, but that period of reflection is already over.

Kevin De Bruyne chose to join in on the fun and let off an absolute screamer in the 54th minute to make it a three-goal advantage to Manchester City.

City have two games left to play at the Etihad Stadium and Guardiola joked that he would prefer if they looked after the pitch. Regradless of the statistics, they will go down as one of the very best teams we have had the pleasure to witness in the Premier League era.

City completed an outstanding 943 passes during the match, with an accuracy of 92.3 percent.

The hosts strung quick passes in the build-up before Kevin De Bruyne played Raheem Sterling in behind the defence.

There was also at least one flare let off among the fans as security moved hurriedly to ensure players could leave the field safely, with City captain Vincent Kompany and French global Benjamin Mendy the last players to leave for the safety of the dressing rooms.

City clinched the Premier League title last weekend and the team celebrated their success in style with an emphatic victory at the Etihad Stadium.

Jesus did get a goal in the end, heading in the 88th. There was a party feel throughout the game and, after the final whistle, City fans stormed the field and mobbed players in a good-natured celebration.

"It's never unfinished business in football, you have to keep improving. The numbers keep the players focused".

The marks for most wins, most goals, most points, best goal difference and the biggest winning points margin at the top of the table are all well within his team's reach after this five-goal demolition of Swansea.

The Brazilian added more misery on the visitors by scoring a fifth goal, thanks to Yaya Toure's fantastic ball.

"Swansea have had good results under Carlos Carvalhal against Arsenal and Liverpool and that's why it was so important to focus, play well and score".
