Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was right about Ghanaian midfielder, Mohammed Kudus, before the Premier League clash against West Ham United on Super Sunday.

Guardiola praised the Ghanaian and warned his players about the threat of the Black Stars attacking midfielder.

Kudus scored a fantastic goal but it was not enough as Manchester City beat the Hammers 3-1 to win the Premier League for a fourth consecutive season.

“Now I’m not thinking one second about next season. Because it’s West Ham, four players up front who can create something," Guardiola said before the ga,e, as quoted by Man City's official website.
“Kudus is an exceptional player. Bowen for many years and Antonio, when he’s fit, is unbelievable. Paqueta is a top-class player in that he can do many things.
“That’s why. All four from nothing they can do something unique and special. That is my only concern right now.
“Next season will be next season.”

Kudus has indeed been exceptional for the Hammers since joining the club from Ajax last summer, scoring 14 goals and providing six assists across all competitions, per Transfermarkt.

The 23-year-old won West Ham's Goal of the Season award with his sensational solo strike against Freiburg in the Europa League round of 16.

The Right to Dream Academy graduate will be hoping to end the campaign on a high by potentially stopping City from being champions.

Kudus gets fresh cut ahead of City clash

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Mohammed Kudus travelled to the Etihad Stadium with a new look as he wraps up his first season with West Ham United in the Premier League with a crucial game against Manchester City.

There will be huge interest in the game in Manchester with the Hammers having the potential of marring City's Premier League title ambition.

Manchester City head into the final match of the campaign a point ahead of Arsenal, who face Everton at the Emirates, with all games played simultaneously.
