De Bruyne doubts Manchester City points record will ever be beaten

Manchester City celebrated their title by becoming the first English team ever to break the 100-point barrier.

898 - Harry Kane has now gone 898 minutes without scoring a single Premier League goal in the month of August, despite playing 13 games and attempting 44 shots in that time.

"The decision to go with Mark in the timeframe that we had to meet him and to bring him in was very tight, but everything since they've been here has been natural and the fit has been ideal", he told Britain's Press Association. The opponent's physicality and their three at the back. At the other end of the pitch, goalkeepers make a difference too and Opta's expected goals model now helps to calculate their performance as well.

"It's incredible, I don't have words, 100 points", Guardiola said.

24 - Manchester City won the most points in matches between the big six with 24, Arsenal claimed the fewest (6).

"My favourite is the way we played. Incredible, incredible", he said after the game, as quoted by BBC Football.

"Once again our consistency showed up today".

The #CENTURIONS in action!

The challenge is now to better that next year, but Guardiola does not intend to start thinking about that quite yet.

Manchester City ran away with the title this season, finishing 19 points clear of second-placed Manchester United.

"The important thing is in the games we tried, we tried, we tried", Guardiola added. "You have to choose one, I was this one", he said.

"Sometimes, the guys who try to win, you have your reward".

City controlled first-half possession before Saints defender Wesley Hoedt headed against Claudio Bravo's crossbar from a Dusan Tadic corner.

"We must come back (to the Premier League) as soon as possible, whether it is with me or not we will see". Of course, always I think the records are a effect of our game, our consistency.

The former England man wrote in his Daily Mirror column: "What if this campaign is as good as it gets from Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane?"
