Records tumble as Toure is given a champion's farewell

Records tumble as Toure is given a champion's farewell

The champions lead by 20 points and have one last target - reaching 100 points by beating Southampton on Sunday in its final game of the season. They become the first English side to win 31 games in a 38-game top-flight season and moves them onto a record 97 points with one game remaining.

Pep Guardiola has yet to conclude contract negotiations over a new deal with Premier League champions Manchester City but said recently there is no urgency to do so.

While the Spaniard was full of praise of his fluent attacking Citizens, he stopped short of labeling his team as the best side in Premier League history.

The veteran midfielder has been one of City's most inspirational players since joining the club in 2010 and, even though his appearances have been limited this season, Guardiola thinks he could still shine elsewhere. 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. They've come and supported us, they've been very useful to me and my household, and I wish to thank them'.

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

Toure netted 59 goals for the English Premier League side during his eight-year stay.

'There aren't many gamers like Yaya, he is among the best on the earth, ' stated Kolo. "He lives close to here, he's loved by the crowd, the locker room, his speech was wonderful, it was a ideal night for us".

"I want to thank the fans as well".

Manchester City have launched the 2018/19 home kit!

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.

The only disappointment was that Yaya Touré could not cap his 316th and final City appearance with a goal, but the Ivorian - central to so much of the club's recent success - was richly rewarded for his service after the final whistle. The fans, all the time, have shown love. "I'll be back for sure".
