"You expect the best team in England to always go to the end and we ended up losing a game I thought we possibly should have won".

Perhaps the club most attuned to the riddle that the Premiership title defence is, has been Chelsea, who held the record for most points (95 points in 2004-05) and most wins (30 wins in 2016-17) before Manchester City shattered the records.

5 - City won the Premier League with five games to spare, equalling the top-flight record also achieved by Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85). "I get the assists and I look good".

Identifying the players who won their team the most points and saved the most goals in the 2017/18 Premier League season.

If there feels an inevitability to it all now, it is worth remembering that when Silva agreed to join City, becoming their first summer signing of 2017, they had just finished 15 points behind Chelsea.

He had Vincent Kompany, Aymeric Laporte and John Stones taking turns to play alongside him in the backline but he managed to help his team keep more clean sheets and concede fewer goals than any other team in the top flight this season and deserves his place as one of the best defenders in the league.

However, he is still three goals short of Ian Rush's record of 47 goals in all competitions in a single season for Liverpool, set during the 1983-84 season, and he will need to score in the Champions League final to match that.

Jesus' dramatic victor was a timely reminder that this City side are no ordinary team.

The 'keeper played a crucial role in helping City to the title, one they won with a record points total of 100 after Gabriel Jesus' late victor against Southampton on Sunday.

In the Premier League, from the moment Salah found the net on his debut, he proved nearly impossible to stop.

Maybe that's why the only recent champions to buck the trend were the more attack-oriented Manchester City sides of 2013 and 2015.

"I am very proud having contributed a little bit", Wenger told reporters.

"When you analyse the numbers, I would say we can't improve the numbers, no".

The 68-year-old Frenchman was in a pensive mood after his 1,235th and final game in charge.
