Stones set to return for Man City's final two games

Both teams won home games on Tuesday - City beat West Bromwich Albion 3-1 and Arsenal defeated Sunderland 2-0 - to leave them separated by three points heading into the final round of games.

"We know there is still one game to go until the end of the season and we want to secure that third positon to qualify (outright) for the Champions League".

The two-time Premier League victor will end a celebrated nine-year association with the club at the end of the campaign and Guardiola added: "The crowd have stayed to say goodbye to a legend".

On a return to his old club, Grimaldo said: "I don't close the door to anyone, especially a club like Barcelona, for whom I only have to thank for the academy years I've been there".

Guardiola has the backing of City owner Sheikh Mansour and City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak but he admitted their patience won't last beyond next season.

"I will enjoy watching Manchester City in the Champions League".

"I thought I had done enough and that it's the right time for me to move on but believe me, I love this Club so much".

United States extends sanctions relief under Iran nuclear deal
But the USA also announced new unrelated sanctions in a bid to show it wasn't letting Tehran off the hook. Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Stuart Jones said in a statement .

"It has been a fantastic time". I have been part of the most successful period in Manchester City's history. "I am so humbled by that".

After the game he was honoured in an on-pitch presentation when, among other tributes, he was given a lifetime City season ticket. Looking at the recent form of the Baggies that does not look good, but they almost kept Chelsea out in the last game and I am sure that Tony Pulis will not want them to end the season with a string of losses.

Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne scored first-half goals, before Toure strolled through West Brom's defense to add the third and bring the home fans at Etihad Stadium to their feet.

However, the Baggies did get a consolation goal at the death, when sub Hal Robson-Kanu turned in a cross from Allan Nyom.

Manager Tony Pulis said: "City deserved to win the game - they were better than us".

Just get the win, lads. Their campaign ends away at Swansea. I'm happy it's in our hands to finish third.
