Manchester City sets Premier League record for points, goals, wins

Yaya Toure played his 316th and last game for Manchester City. I think, especially, the Brighton team didn't want me to score but the most important thing was we broke the record, we scored more goals.

"You have to make more years to do that but one season we were better than all of them".

The new records set by City in this game saw them surpass Chelsea in all three categories.

Toure, a powerful and technically gifted midfielder, will be remembered for being a man for the big occasion.

He also received a huge cheer when he picked out his winning goal against arch-rivals Manchester United in the 2011 FA Cup semi-final as his favourite moment at the club.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola praised the "outstanding" Leroy Sane, admitting he was anxious about the attacker after the title party on Sunday. That is the mentality I love. "I just want to say thank you to Yaya". "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".

Toure, 34, is leaving City this summer after an outstanding eight years at the club, a period in which he was won three Premier League titles and four domestic cups. Tellingly, he was the only player at City to earn a contract extension at the end of last season, although he spent much of this season as an understudy to midfield anchorman Fernandinho and those rampaging runs from midfield were barely seen. "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".

Captain Vincent Kompnay gave his armband to Toure for the night and was to quick to praise his long-time teammate, who he lifted the Premier Leeague trophy with on Sunday.

"He enjoys the training sessions", Guardiola said, before adding with a smile: "Especially with the ball".
