Manchester City aim for 100 point finish in 'almost perfect' season - Guardiola

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.

City boss Guardiola said: "97 points, a lot of goals, a lot of wins - that's a outcome of the season we have done". Can they do it?

City's final game of the season is away at Southampton on Sunday - but the Ivorian will not feature.

After the game, he was presented with a commemorative shirt on the pitch, and was joined by older brother Kolo. The 30 wins they had prior to this game was level with the amount the west London club achieved last season.

Despite his legendary status, he has hardly figured under Pep Guardiola this season - and is looking to move to another Premier League club. "The league is won, now it's the records".

Guardiola suggested City can get "a lot" better, and said of PFA Young Player of the Year Sane: "What I like the most with Leroy, seeing his outstanding performance today, was I had the feeling he can do better, and that is the best".

"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". David Silva and Raheem Sterling are also in double figures meaning they are the first team ever with four players at that mark.

Guardiola would not be drawn on whether the former Gunners midfielder is likely to leave, however. He lives only a short time from here, and he's loved, from what I felt today in the crowd, and the people in locker room now.

"The most important one was the goal against United", he said when asked about his City highlights. I said I am going to show you the way.
