Lift off Vincent Kompany leads the celebrations at the Etihad

Three weeks after Guardiola spoke those words, his team underlined that point with a win over Brighton at home, meaning they eclipsed the previous Premier League record points tally of 95 points, set by Chelsea in 2005.

The Premier League champions may yet conclude the campaign by becoming the first team to reach 100 points in an English top-flight season if they win at Southampton on Sunday (15:00 BST). Can they do it?

The Ivorian captained the side and was presented with a lifetime season ticket and framed shirt after the game by his brother Kolo as the fans gave him a standing ovation.

"When I signed from Barcelona, I was talking to (City's then chief executive) Garry Cook, and he said I hope you can bring success when you sign for us", Toure said.

"This is our challenge and I want to be as good as we can in these (two remaining) games". "I don't want to face them, but if I want to stay in the Premier League, I'll have to". "The league is won, now it's the records".

"I have one more year and next year I will be here", said Guardiola.

If Taylor struggles and the Browns get off to yet another awful start, the calls for Mayfield will become overbearing. It didn't even faze Mayfield that at least a half-dozen teams had him QB1 on their draft boards.

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

"But in terms of statistics and numbers, this season we were the best, and that's why we are so satisfied". He scored the winning goal in both the semifinals (against Manchester United) and final (against Stoke) of the FA Cup in 2011 as City ended its 35-year wait for a trophy.

"I suppose him and (David) Silva instantly come to mind that have been through a longer period and seen the real progress of this football team".

"The most important one was the goal against United", he said when asked about his City highlights.

"If anyone is going to be a legend at this Club, it's this man", Kompany said.

Guardiola has made his home in Manchester City centre and has become a prominent figure in the area in his near two years in residence.
