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

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

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.

Translating those wins into three points per game, Bob Paisley's side would have earned 98 points across 42 games, compared to City's 100 from a 38-game campaign should they win at St Mary's. People think I would be sad but I am happy because I leave a good legacy. "Tomorrow, we are going to play for Yaya".

"Now when we lose or draw you see everyone sad or angry". "I loved the challenge".

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

"They have been educated like that because they are champions". "For young guys and old guys, he deserves the respect of the other ones ... a guy like what he did in this club, we should not judge what happened a few months ago". "I hope next year is going to be bright and much better".

City's +78 goal difference will also break the previous best of +71 - yet another Chelsea record - once the season is officially over.

Danilo put City ahead and after Leonardo Ulloa equalised, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho also got on the scoresheet for City.

Toure leaves after 316 games for the club, six major trophies and 82 goals, and he was a star performer as City beat Brighton 3-1 last night.

Toure went close to getting on the scoresheet himself when he shot at Mathew Ryan after a typical lung-bursting run shortly before being substituted to a huge ovation in the 86th minute. "Now it's time to finish well and then start to talk about what we have to do next season, who is staying and who we have to buy".

"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".
