As Manchester City look to all but end the Premier League title race with a win at West Ham United this weekend, coach Pep Guardiola wants his team to be remembered for its style.

Manchester City may appear to be a relentless winning-machine, but manager Pep Guardiola wants his side's legacy to be that their period of Premier League dominance was "fun" as the team close in on their sixth title.

City lead the standings on 89 points, three ahead of Liverpool with two games to play. Thanks to their superior goal difference, a win against West Ham United on Sunday (May 15) would all but assure them of a second successive league triumph.

Despite amassing eight trophies during his tenure, Guardiola, who has yet to extend his contract beyond 2023, wants his side to be remembered for their style of play and sense of joy.

City's title rivals Liverpool play the FA Cup final against Chelsea on Saturday (May 14) and won't be in league action again until Tuesday (May 17) against Southampton.

By then, City could be six points ahead but Guardiola was not taking a win at West Ham for granted.
