    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed midfielder Yaya Toure will leave the club at the end of the season.

    Toure joined City from Barcelona in 2010 for £24m.

    He won two Premier League titles prior to this season and scored the winner when City beat Stoke in the 2011 FA Cup Final.

    The Ivorian will play his final game City game against Brighton on Wednesday.

    Guardiola said: "Yaya came here at the start of the journey. Where we are now is because of what he has done. He was a key player for Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini."

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: "What we have to think about is winning another game when that happens we will break huge records. But the target is to play good. We are here for 10 months fighting every week to do this.

    "When you are champions you have more courage. The title belongs to us.

    "Next season we start on zero but the signs are good. We want to improve, next season. We start again. But it’s a good sign"

  7. Conte's future

    Chelsea v Liverpool (Sunday 16:30 BST)


    Antonio Conte

    The future of Antonio Conte has been a regular item at pre and post match press conferences this term and guess what....he's been asked about it again.

    "I find it very strange to have a season where you have the same question in every press conference," he says.

    "My answer is simple I have a contract with Chelsea and I’m doing my work every day.

    I think now our target is focused on finishing in best possible way and fighting for a place in Champions League. It is not easy as the situation is not in our hands.

    "We have to try, starting with three points with Liverpool and then we will see what happens."


    Toure to leave City at end of season

    Manchester City

    Yaya Toure

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed midfielder Yaya Toure will leave the club at the end of the season.

    Guardiola said Toure will play his final game against Brighton on Wednesday.

    "Yaya came here at the start of the journey," said Guardiola.

    "Where we are now is because of what he has done. He was a key player for Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini."

  9. 'Not the time to talk Martial'

    Chelsea v Liverpool (Sunday 16:30 BST)


    Anthony Martial

    Chelsea have also been linked with a summer move for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial but Antonio Conte plays a question on that with a straight bat.

    "It is not the right moment to speak about this," he says.

    "I don’t like to talk about players of others teams It is disrespectful to our players and other clubs. Our focus is on finishing the season in the best possible way."

  10. 'Difficult to predict this kind of season for Salah'

    Chelsea v Liverpool (Sunday 16:30 BST)


    Mohamed Salah

    Antonio Conte now has to field a couple of questions about Liverpool goal machine Mohamed Salah.

    The Egyptian has scored 43 goals this term but of course was formerly a Chelsea player.

    "We are talking about a really good player. I knew him when he played in Italy but to it would've been very difficult to predict this kind of season for Salah." says Conte.

    "He was a good technical player but this season I'm seeing him be very clinical."

    He jokes: "I’ve never spoken about Salah [and Chelsea], the situation was clear and nobody asked me about him. You give me a lot of responsibility already and now this I don’t want to take it."

  11. 'A good opportunity for us'

    Chelsea v Liverpool (Sunday 16:30 BST)


    Antonio Conte

    The Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is in the building. And here's what he's had to say as his team try to claw back a five point gap to Tottenham and Liverpool's six point advantage in the race for the Champions League places.

    The Blues crucially also have a game in hand over Jurgen Klopp' side and wins on Sunday and against Huddersfield next Wednesday would put them level with the Reds.

    "This could be a good opportunity for us. As I've said a lot of times if we want to keep Europe alive we have to win and get three points," said Conte.

    "Liverpool are a good team and it won't be easy but we have to win on Sunday. We must be ready to fight and be prepared against them.

    "Their first game against Roma showed that if you get them a lot of space behind your defensive line they can give you a lot of trouble. We must be very compact."

  12. Trophy time for Man City

    We have known Manchester City are going to be Premier League champions for quite a while.

    They actually won the title three weeks ago.

    On Sunday, they get their hands on the trophy.

    Pep Guardiola looks ahead to the game against Huddersfield at the Etihad Stadium this afternoon.

  14. Championship: Who needs what to beat the drop, go up or make play-offs on final day?

    Neil Warnock

    The final countdown. Survival Sunday. Whatever you call it, the final day of the Championship's regular season has thrown up some fascinating permutations.

    While Wolves have run away with the league title, the second promotion place remains a straight fight between Cardiff and Fulham, while Derby, Preston and Millwall are in contention for the last play-off berth.

    But the least straightforward situation comes at the bottom of the table, where no fewer than five clubs are battling to avoid filling the two remaining relegation spots. To add spice to the occasion, four of the five contenders are playing teams needing points at the top.

    When the music stops, which two clubs will join rock-bottom Sunderland in the bottom three? Here's how each team can go down - or stay up...

  15. Sunderland: Prospective owner Stewart Donald agrees sale of Eastleigh


    Prospective new Sunderland owner Stewart Donald has cleared another obstacle to his impending purchase by agreeing the sale of non-league club Eastleigh.

    Donald must sell Eastleigh before he can complete his takeover of League One-bound Sunderland.

    It is understood the sale will now be ratified by the National League.

    Providing there are no problems, Donald could be in a position to take control at Sunderland at some point next week.

    The news comes as Sunderland published annual accounts showing the club's debt rose to £125.7m.

    Wembley Stadium

    The Football Association has been called to give evidence in Parliament on the future of Wembley Stadium.

    There will be a one-off session held by the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee (DCMS) on 18 July.

    It comes after Fulham owner Shahid Khan made an offer, thought to be worth £900m, to buy Wembley from the FA.

    DCMS chair Damian Collins said there should be "some public scrutiny" of any decision to sell the stadium.

    "Wembley is the home of English football, built in part using public money," he added.
