Yaya Toure bids farewell to Manchester City fans in video

"We're finally going home!"

City won the title in record-setting style.

The Premier League prides itself on being the most competitive in the world and points to Leicester's 2016 title triumph at preseason odds of 5,000-1 as the ultimate evidence. In the process of breaking the record for most goals scored in a 38 match league, he has helped Liverpool secure a top-four position.

OK, United finished second in the table - but they were some 19 points adrift, and that is a huge gap to bridge if the Red Devils want to reclaim the crown.

Belgian midfielder Kevin de Bruyne, arguably City's star player of the campaign, was taken aback by the enthusiasm of the thousands of flag-waving fans.

"The last few weeks were really hard for him", Klopp told Sky Sports.

"This season has been unbelievable and to finish it off yesterday in the last second to get the 100 points is unbelievable".

The playmaker sent a special video message, however, thanking boss Guardiola for his support and paying tribute to departing midfielder Yaya Toure while he cradled six-month old son Matteo in his arms. All things considered City's approach to this summer's transfer market requires a very delicate, precise approach with a definite, achievable vision at the end. Manchester City FC are the winners of the Manchester Feud for this season.

Manager Guardiola said now was not the time for looking ahead to see if they could improve on their league performance next term.

"When you win for 100 points it's something special for the club", said City manager Pep Guardiola.

"It's now time to rest - except the guys who go to the World Cup - and prepare well for the next season", the Spaniard added.

The 25-year-old has also swept the Premier League Player of the Season, the Football Writers' Association's Footballer of the Year, the Professional Football Association's Players' Player of the Year, the Arab Player of the Year and the African Footballer of the Year awards in 2017/18.
