Manchester City 3 v Brighton 1 - story of the match

Share

Manchester City set the English Premier League record for most points, most goals and most wins in a season by beating Brighton 3-1 on Wednesday.

City moved onto 97 points and 105 goals for the season as they registered their 31st win of the campaign - all three are new records for the competition.

Books may be written about this team and this season in future, but for now one more match remains for Pep Guardiola's record-breaking, double-winning Manchester City side of 2017/18. Can they do it?

Guardiola also said it was also fitting farewell to Yaya Toure on his final appearance for the club after eight years at the Etihad Stadium.

After the game, he was presented with a commemorative shirt on the pitch, and was joined by older brother Kolo. "All through the game, we will be focused on winning for Yaya". That is held by Manchester United who won the league in 1999/2000 by 18 points, and are now 20 behind City.

"Now it's one more game (away against Southampton on Sunday), we're going to try for 100 points and finish this nearly ideal season in the Premier League".

Worldwide agencies responsible for inspecting compliance have said that Iran was in full cooperation with the agreement's terms. Qatar, alienated by a Saudi-led boycott, said priority must be given to non-proliferation and preventing a nuclear arms race.

"What I like the most with Leroy, seeing his outstanding performance, finishing the game and I felt he could do better", he said.

"You know, Yaya does not leave the club because always he'll be part of it".

But he was also in no rush to look beyond next season in terms of pledging where his future lies and declined the opportunity to answer directly when asked if he would definitely sign a new deal. "Once, a team will arrive and do better than us, but they will have to do really good".

'I want to thank the fans as well because they've been so supportive. In football one more year is a lot and we're going to talk to the club.

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