Manchester City complete record-breaking Premier League season

Manchester City complete record-breaking Premier League season

Guardiola built on last year's third place by guiding City to the top-flight crown as they became the first side in Premier League history to rack up 100 points.

"Seeing all the people who want to join us and have a party is incredible", he told Sky Sports.

"Maybe he didn't play as much as we wanted for him this season but he's been an incredible part of the team and its success".

Liverpool have clinched the EPL's final Champions League spot, Swansea's relegation was confirmed and champions Manchester City finished with 100 points on a goal-packed final day of the season.

The Blues won it at a frightening level, breaking numerous Premier League records while positioning themselves into discussions about being the greatest Premier League team of all time, alongside the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson's Red Devils of 1999 and Arsene Wenger's Invincibles team of 2004.

The fact that they have set this record is already an awkward thing for the rest of the league to think about. An astonishing 100 points acquired and 106 goals scored.

"The last 10 years nobody has won back-to-back so that is the challenge".

John Coleman collected the League Two award after Accrington Stanley claimed fourth-tier title with 93 points.

"Then we'll try to come back stronger than this season".

A 2-1 away win at Manchester United in December seemed to be the point in which we could all start crowning City as the champions.

"A team is individual players and always you can improve individual players, so with that it makes sense to go to the training sessions and do it", said manager Guardiola.

Sergio Aguero's incredible performance this season has been largely overshadowed by the stunning performances of Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah but the Argentinian's lethal scoring record has been one of the main reasons behind Manchester City's dominance, especially in the crucial middle part of the season. It's about dominating games and expressing their own potential, and, mentally, creative football is less draining than the super-defensive school of winning by tight margins.
