Manchester City smash Premier League points record

Manchester City have set a new top-flight points record with their 3-1 win over Brighton.

Toure has proved an inspired signing since arriving from Barcelona, winning the Premier League three times, the Carabao Cup twice and the FA Cup once.

"Now it's one more game (away against Southampton on Sunday), we're going to try for 100 points and finish this nearly flawless season in the Premier League".

Harry Kane celebrates his goal which led to Tottenham clinching a spot in next season's Champions League.


"This is our challenge and I want to be as good as we can in these (two remaining) games".

The following season he played a major role as City won their first Premier League title - and his best season was in 2013/14 when he scored 24 goals in 49 games in all competitions as Manuel Pellegrini's side won the title and League Cup.

Toure departs with City back on top of the English game, but having only played a peripheral role in this season's title win after being marginalised by Guardiola since the Spanish coach's arrival in 2016.

His name was chanted throughout the contest, there was a huge cheer when he was substituted late on and the crowd also showed their appreciation for the 34-year-old Ivorian during a post-match presentation on the pitch involving his brother and former City team-mate Kolo Toure.


"His behaviour was good, we have no complaints over what happened this season".

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. "Once, a team will arrive and do better than us, but they will have to do really good".

"The most important one was the goal against United", he said when asked about his City highlights.

"He's not leaving because he'll always be part of it", Guardiola said.


Kompany said: 'I want to say thank you to this man; thank you for being such a wonderful teammate.
