An early Gabriel Jesus goal looked to have set City on their way to a remarkable comeback but Liverpool kept their nerve defensively before countering to equalise and eventually get a victor to put City out at an aggregate score of 5-1. They had an incredible season.

Given that Silva has played 1,000 less minutes than Sterling this season and around 600 less than Sane, his statistical total averages show that he could make a larger impact than both players if he were given more time on the pitch.

"It's not the time to talk of next season". But that being said, Aguero's 21 goals have surely helped Manchester City assert their dominance in the Premier League, ultimately making him one of the best performers in the league this campaign. Salah won the Golden Boot and the Player of the Year titles after an unbelievable campaign. In 2015 Chelsea had won the league under Jose Mourinho with 87 points, only to slump to 50 points the following season.

In assorted competitions, Liverpool, Manchester United, Bristol City and even League One side Wigan Athletic have proved City are far from infallible. But there is something a bit odd about the enormous collapses of the last three seasons.

For such teams to win matches consistently requires enormous focus and concentration.

"This year has been something special but next year you all start from nil again and to do the same is probably impossible but we have to try to manage it and try to win next year".

It is their third title in seven campaigns following their memorable last-gasp win in 2012. "But to be a great team you've to go on and win successive titles".

However City's season will remain #1 ever in the league for breaking not just 1 but 5 records in a single season!

But their game is not all about strangling and picking off the other team, it's much more positive than that.

"During the game we were focused and at the end an excellent pass from Kevin and incredible finish from Gabriel made the difference and achieved that record". This season, it didn't even get them close.
