That's because Salah, the PFA and Premier League Player of the Year, broke the scoring record by netting 32 times in 38 times.

Silva also sent a special message to Toure, with whom he has worked at the Etihad Stadium for the past eight seasons, winning three Premier League titles, three League Cups and an FA Cup. "It was the only thing to play for and if you end the season that way, last minute, last kick of the season and you get 100 points it feels unbelievable".

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. Kane eclipsed the 30 goals scored mark, his most prolific output yet, but it wasn't enough to win the Golden Boot Award as the Premier League's top scorer.

The top six teams, led by City in record-breaking fashion, all had a goal difference of at least plus 23.

Manchester City legend Yaya Touré had his final send-off at yesterday's Champions Parade in Manchester, receiving a huge ovation when he came on the stage. "All of the competitions, but for me the Champions League is without a doubt a very special competition for us, and it is my dream to win it in Manchester City's shirt!" he added.

This was the season that saw Huddersfield, the club with the smallest budget, beat Manchester United at home and secure draws with City and Chelsea in the final week of the season to stay up in remarkable fashion.

Fernandinho of Manchester City holds the trophy during the Manchester City trophy parade. "He has done awesome this year and he looks like a great player, and we'll see if we can both continue it next season".

City became the first team in English top-flight history to reach 100 points thanks to Gabriel Jesus' injury-time victor on the final day of the season.

"It's not the time to talk of next season".

"This summer we'll watch the World Cup on the sofa - we'll have some good beer, good red wine and enjoy what we have done".
