Manchester City's bid to be remembered as the greatest Premier League team ever, and perhaps the best in the history of English football, took one massive step into the record books on Wednesday against Brighton. 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.

"This is our challenge and I want to be as good as we can in these (two remaining) games".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola praised the "outstanding" Leroy Sane, admitting he was anxious about the attacker after the title party on Sunday.

After eight years and seven trophy wins, Touré played his final game at the Etihad in City blue. "The league is won, now it's the records".

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.

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.

City missed out on a new record with defeat to Manchester United but matched their neighbours' previous mark from 2000-01 by winning the league with five games to go.

City have now scored 105 goals, breaking the previous record of 103 set by Chelsea in their 2009-10 title-winning campaign. "Once, a team will arrive and do better than us, but they will have to do really good".

"He has helped make the club bigger and bigger and bigger", City manager Pep Guardiola said on Tuesday, a day before Toure plays his last home match for the club against Brighton.

"He's not leaving because he'll always be part of it", Guardiola said. "Thank you for being a wonderful teammate both in the dressing room and on the pitch".

"We will give him what he deserves, one of the most lovely farewells a player can receive", City manager Pep Guardiola wrote in the match programme.
