Manchester City aim for 100 point finish in 'almost perfect' season - Guardiola

Toure lined up in the City midfield from the off (just his tenth start of the season) and had nearly every touch cheered to the rafters as the hosts took just 16 minutes to open the scoring through Danilo.

The Ivory Coast worldwide has won three Premier League titles during his time at the club but is now preparing for the next step in his career. I needn't remind you in regards to the semi-final, the ultimate, the primary league successful title targets, the second league title in opposition to Crystal Palace, the League Cup finals in opposition to Sunderland and Liverpool.

Guardiola said: "Football players make clubs bigger and bigger and without doubt he was, and is, one of the most important players in our history".

It remains highly unlikely, but because rampant City are seeking to underline their record-shredding campaign with a landmark century of points, few Southampton or Swansea fans can quite convince themselves it is over yet.

Toure was made captain for the evening as champions City completed their home programme for the season in record-breaking style. "We must win the game and hope for a miracle to happen".

City soon had their third, Sane making the most of terrible defending to tee up Fernandinho, who duly swept home from the edge of the area.

After fluffing their lines against Huddersfield Town on Sunday, the champions finally broke the records they have been threatening to shatter since the start of the season, as Danilo, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho's goals comfortably saw them past Brighton. Now it's one more game, we'll try for 100 points and finish this nearly ideal season. Leonardo Ulloa scored for the visitors.

After enduring a slight dip in his output in recent weeks, Leroy Sane roared back to his phenomenal best against the Seagulls by laying on a hat-trick of assists.

On his final home appearance as a City player, Toure, who is leaving the club at the end of the season after eight years, captained the side.
