  • Liverpool could still drop to fifth on Sunday

Instead, Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka set a new Premier League record with 3,117 attempted passes.

City's free-flowing football, epitomised by Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane, David Silva and Raheem Sterling, had everyone in raptures and in truth, had the title wrapped up several weeks before it was mathematically certain.

Manchester City midfielder David Silva sent a attractive message to manager Pep Guardiola, his title-winning teammates and the 100,000 supporters that lined the streets of Manchester for the club's parade last night.

Former Manchester United junior Eamon Dunphy insists champions Manchester City are overrated.

Just as with every season, we tried to pick the best XI. "I don't think a lot of teams will reach 100 points", he said.

City's director of football Txiki Begiristain added: "Ederson has shown in his first season at the club that he has all the attributes needed to become one of the best goalkeepers in the world".

Thousands of Manchester City supporters lined the streets as the Premier League champions celebrated this season's successes with an open-top bus parade on Monday. Also, one should not overlook the minute detail that Guardiola's City could only secure a hundred points in the very last minute of their season, in spite of leading the title charge since December of 2017 when the rest of the contenders folded their cards.

Here's Man City star Leroy Sane leading the celebrations!

The Premiership title defence has been nothing short of an enigma, for Manchester United were the last club to successfully defend their championship back in 2008-09 season.

"It's incredible. I don't have the words, 50 points at home, 50 points away".

"The issue is, the style of football they are playing".

"What can I say?" "I don't know what will stay or remain through the victories or defeats". "Ultimately, at the end of next season if Pep wins another league that will be a big problem over a three-year period".
