Salah breaks more Prem scoring records

Manchester City have "a hell of an opportunity" to go on and dominate the Premier League after winning the title this season, says Alan Shearer.

City needed to win their match, away to relegation-avoiders, Southampton, to become the first team in Premier League history to reach 100 points.

Liverpool star forward Mohamed Salah broke his own records this season by breaking the record for most goals scored in a single 38-game season (scoring his 32nd against Brighton on the final day), snatching the Golden Boot from previous holder Harry Kane.

Staying on track in a season like this, it's really hard, he's still a young boy and I am really happy with how he dealt with it.

"I should give myself a shake really - I'm a little bit flat because I thought we should have won the game against the champions", Hughes told reporters.

Moving away from City, Ederson's next challenge is to convince Brazil boss Tite that he's done enough to dislodge Alisson Becker from his starting spot at next month's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Instead, Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka set a new Premier League record with 3,117 attempted passes.

The youth of this City side indicates the improvement a perfectionist manager, in Pep Guardiola, and a driven group of players pursue is possible.

'Ederson has shown in his first season at the club that he has all the attributes needed to become one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

The goal meant the Egypt worldwide finished two ahead of Tottenham's Harry Kane in the race to be the league's top scorer.

Manchester City have broken nearly every record there is to break.

And Conte, who questioned the desire of his players, claims Chelsea have no chance of an FA Cup final victory over Manchester United unless they improve quickly. Not only must Manchester City ensure that Guardiola is never starved off the kind of players the Spaniard prefers to work with, but the club should also be wary of complacency, especially if they wish to scale the European summit. The Stockport lad is only 17 years old.

Those who watched him closely during his time with AS Roma knew that Liverpool were getting a player much more lethal and well-rounded than the one which struggled to make an impact at Chelsea, but few could have predicted what Salah accomplished in his debut season with Liverpool. Adjusting Liverpool's efforts in the 1978-79 season to three points for a win, the overall record stood at 98.

Thousands of teachers expected to march in Raleigh Wednesday
North Carolina is latest in a string of states where teachers have gone on strike to push for higher pay and better conditions. Turning an advocacy day into a protest march may have the opposite effect, driving a wedge between teachers and legislators.
