City's brilliance lights up season as Wenger bows out

City's brilliance lights up season as Wenger bows out

"Because the players can do better, the manager as well, in a group, in a team we can do better".

However City's season will remain #1 ever in the league for breaking not just 1 but 5 records in a single season!

Will Manchester City be able to defend their momentous title-winning campaign, next season?

"This summer we'll watch the World Cup on the sofa - we'll have some good drinks and enjoy what we have done".

If City can walk the title with 100 points - scoring a goal a game more than the team in second place - then this supposed competitiveness has been exposed as a mere marketing conceit.

Salah will be hoping to help to fire Liverpool FC to their first trophy under Jurgen Klopp when they take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final at the end of the month.

"And to do that in the Premier League is unbelievable". That man, of course, is record Premier League goalscorer Alan Shearer.




100 - Despite winning six previous league titles across spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, Guardiola has reached 100 points in a season for the first time in his career - surpassing 99 with Barca in 2009-10. Leicester City had a season of mythical proportions in 2015-16, one not even their most fanatic supporters believed they could replicate anytime soon.

City became the first team in English top-flight history to reach 100 points thanks to Gabriel Jesus' injury-time victor on the final day of the season.

"I am very proud having contributed a little bit", Wenger told reporters.

Maybe that's why the only recent champions to buck the trend were the more attack-oriented Manchester City sides of 2013 and 2015.

"I want to say thank you to the fans, my teammates, the staff, the club and especially to the manager for understanding my situation".

Instrumental to City's miserly goals-against tally - they finished with a goal difference of +79 - was goalkeeper Ederson, and the Brazilian signed a new contract extension on Sunday evening to commit himself to the club until 2025.

Just to recap the goal - @DeBruyneKev floats one over the top into @gabrieljesus33 's path who produces the most exquisite of chips over McCarthy to snatch the win, and snatch the historic 100 points total! In 2015 Chelsea had won the league under Jose Mourinho with 87 points, only to slump to 50 points the following season.
