Veteran midfielder Yaya Toure was made captain for his final home appearance and goals from Danilo, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho ensured he finished on the winning side.

"Now we want 100 points and finish this nearly flawless season in the Premier League", Guardiola told Man City's official website.

City broke the record for most wins, most points and most goals on the same night after their 3-1 win over Brighton.

Toure, 34, has won three Premier League titles and four domestic cups during his eight seasons at City.

The best performance ever, statistically, in an English season came from Liverpool in 1978-79 when a win was still worth two points.

"To be the best we have to win more", he added. "And [thanks to] the fans, who have supported me and my family".

CDC: Diseases from mosquitoes, ticks on the rise
Build and sustain public health programs that test and track germs and the mosquitoes and ticks that spread them. Petersen would not say directly that climate change is worsening things but said hot weather is a major factor .

After he had come off in the 86th minute to a fabulous reception, Toure's elder brother Kolo, another former City favourite, presented him with a commemorative shirt. "I am very proud of my brother, there's not many players like Yaya". In football one more year is a lot and we're going to talk to the club.

Club captain Vincent Kompany also paid tribute to his old friend who will go down in City folklore for his victor against United in the 2011 FA Cup semi-final and Stoke in the final that ended the club's 35-year wait for a trophy.

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

The Catalan has led City to the title in his second season in charge at the Etihad and is now two-thirds of the way through the initial three-year contact he signed when he moved to Manchester in the summer of 2016.

"If you're not going to be a legend with that, you'll never be".
