Manchester City smash Premier League points record

  • Riyad Mahrez was devastated after his move to City fell through and hopes it can still happen

Records tumbled as City took their goals tally for the campaign to 105, their points total to 97 and their number of wins to 31.

However, the star of the show was Leroy Sane who set up all three City goals, the first when he pushed the ball forwards and Danilo finished smartly. "I don't want to face them, but if I want to stay in the Premier League, I'll have to".

"Hopefully we can make a good game and dedicate it to him", Guardiola added.

It means Guardiola, 47, has now won the league title in all three of the major European countries in which he has managed, following success in Spain with Barcelona and in Germany with Bayern Munich. "I hope next year is going to be bright and much better".

Yaya Toure played his 316th and last game for Manchester City.

Guardiola praised the 22-year-old for his display, days after City celebrated their Premier League title.




"It's fantastic because we did that (break the records) in the day we always will remember - the day for Yaya".

Manchester City continued to break records on a memorable night at the Etihad Stadium, which saw the fans and team bid farewell to club legend Yaya Touré. David Silva and Raheem Sterling are also in double figures meaning they are the first team ever with four players at that mark.

However, Guardiola always valued Toure's influence as a player, on and off the field. "[To earn] 97 points is a lot of [and records for] goals and wins, that's a outcome of the season we've done".

"We will give him what he deserves, one of the most attractive farewells a player can receive", City manager Pep Guardiola wrote in the match programme.

Captain Vincent Kompnay gave his armband to Toure for the night and was to quick to praise his long-time teammate, who he lifted the Premier Leeague trophy with on Sunday. In football one more year is a lot and we're going to talk to the club.
