Guardiola: How City can 'be alongside' United, Liverpool

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

Getting the three points on Sunday to finish with exactly 100 clearly means a good deal to the Spaniard, who noted after City's 3-1 steamrollering of Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday that it would "finish this nearly flawless season".

Goals from Danilo, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho saw City, who had suffered a goalless blip against Huddersfield Town on Sunday, take their season's total to 97 points, eclipsing Chelsea's Premier League-era record of 95 set in 2004-05.

Guardiola will be hoping his players ensure they become the first team to ever hit 100 points in a season during their final fixture against Southampton at the weekend. Can they do it?

Departing Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has been linked with three Premier League clubs, and his agent has also made a surprise admission about the African superstar's wage demands.

At full-time, his brother Kolo - who also played for City between 2009-2013 - presented his younger brother Yaya with a commemorative shirt.




"I'm not finishing in two weeks or one month - I have one more year".

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

"In the end, we have won one Premier League - three in six years, but in this moment just one". We're going to try for 100 points and finish this nearly ideal season in the Premier League. People think I would be sad but I am happy because I leave a good legacy. "To be alongside United in the '90s or Liverpool in the '80s, you have to win more".

"In terms of stats and numbers we were the best this season, we are so satisfied". They go to school here, they have a lot of friends in Manchester.

Toure promised City fans he would return to the Etihad Stadium, adding: "Of course I was very delighted to be part of the team that broke the record".
