City broke the Premier League points record by taking their season's tally to 97 with a 3-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday and victory over Southampton today will see them finish the campaign with a century.

City boss Guardiola said: "97 points, a lot of goals, a lot of wins - that's a effect of the season we have done". "But (this season) we've done better than the others, we can not deny". "In the end, we have won one Premier League - three in six years, but in this moment just one". He is targeting 100 points to cap an "almost flawless season".

The Portuguese midfielder joined the Club last summer after an outstanding season with Monaco, and after a hard first few months he has emerged as one of the stars of our record-breaking year. Now we are going to change some details with Yaya [Toure] leaving. "One [signing] - maybe, maybe two".

"The club, the chairman and myself would like him to stay for a long, long time and sign a new contract", Guardiola said. City have broken many league-records this season, and they will have their eyes set on this one too. The manager and all the staff told us they wanted it, they said: "'Let's break the records because it will be something special.' And it will be something that maybe in a few years we can still tell our kids and grandkids about".

The 23-year-old has reportedly chose to delay talks over a new contract with City until after the World Cup.

The Atlanta creator stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to update everyone on his extensive project list. As of right now at least, the performer, known as Childish Gambino , just can't deal with the hot takes.

Therefore it should be clear to the Magpies that Man City are hiding their dream new No.9 in plain sight and that the club must swoop for him in the summer, as there's a real chance they could successfully sign him.

"I think it's not going to happen, my desire is it will not happen", the former Barcelona manager said.

With a hugely significant win over Swansea on Tuesday night, Southampton have given themselves some breathing room in the relegation battle, something they certainly needed as they prepare to take on Manchester City this Sunday.

"We have done that all season".
