Manchester City break Premier League points record

Lift off Vincent Kompany leads the celebrations at the Etihad

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

Yaya Toure bade farewell to the Etihad Stadium as champions Manchester City set a hat-trick of Premier League records in a routine 3-1 win over Brighton.

City missed out on a new record with defeat to Manchester United but matched their neighbours' previous mark from 2000-01 by winning the league with five games to go. 'We tried all season to break the records and maintain our intensity.

Swansea's manager Carlos Carvalhal can only hopes the champions have one more exceptional 90 minutes in them. We're going to try for 100 points and finish this nearly ideal season in the Premier League.

"I suppose him and (David) Silva instantly come to mind that have been through a longer period and seen the real progress of this football team". Records will be broken but the team who are going to break them have to do many good things. We've done better than the others, we can not deny.

"In terms of stats and numbers, we were the best".

Yaya Toure will leave the Citizens after eight years at the club, having netted 59 times for his side.

'The way we played it's fantastic for us, ' said Guardiola. An outstanding performance and a flawless night. He lives close to here, he's loved by the crowd and the locker room'.

A win at St Mary's would also break two other records - most away wins in a season and most away points in a season. This one was much better. "We must win the game and hope for a miracle to happen".

Guardiola was named the Premier League's top boss in September, October, November and December, the first man ever to win four successive manager of the month awards.

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.
