Pep Guardiola's men smashed the record for most points and most goals scoring in a Premier League season, 100 and 106 respectively, as they comprehensively cruised to the title.

Manchester City show appreciation to the fans after the Premier League match between Southampton and Manchester City at St Mary's Stadium on May 13, 2018 in Southampton, England.

Speaking after their final day loss, Cavalhal told BBC Sport: "In my opinion, the few points that the team achieved in the first part of the season sent us down".

The Belgian striker struck 15 times last season but managed only three league goals in 2017-18, falling well below his xG of 10.2. Then all the superlatives are imaginable but let's compare City's season to the Wenger's Arsenal Invisibles who finished the campaign undefeated in 2004.

"Thank you for understanding my situation". I will be in debt with you forever.

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. I can say to my son that I played with the best African player ever.

'To my team-mates I wish to want you one of the best of luck for the World Cup, I will see you there and the remainder of the folks - take pleasure in tonight and see you subsequent season!'
