They now require two goals and three points from their three remaining games to break another two Premier League records. We will try to surpass the number of goals and points.
Pep Guardiola's side have already won the league title and set the record for most consecutive victory earlier in the season when they won 18 matches in a row.
"You always have to play for something".
"The numbers are a effect of what we have done", Guardiola said.
We knew there were going to be tough games on the run in.
Manchester City have played free flowing football throughout the season and this match was no different from that. "It's good to see something to fight (for)".
PFA Young Player of the Year Leroy Sane got City - confirmed as Premier League champions two weeks ago - up and running in the 13th minute as his strike from the edge of the penalty area was deflected in by Patrice Evra.
De Bruyne sent over a low cross which Adrian could only deflect towards Hammers defender Declan Rice, whose panicked clearance hit Zabaleta and trickled into the net. But Guardiola will demand that his side don't ease up before the season is over, with his side st to face Huddersfield, Brighton and Southampton for a second time this campaign. It wouldn't be fair to them if we came down here for a holiday.
We made them look even better!
"Either Moyes has done a lot of work during the week and the players have just ignored it, or they haven't done enough work in terms of how they set up".
"We found a way back at half-time, but we can't have any complaints". In the top five leagues in Europe, comprising of almost 100 teams, nobody is going to claim that only five - Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint Germain, probably Juventus, Man City - have enjoyed a successful season.
"We couldn't get close to them. I wanted to challenge them, I wanted to do better, so I'm disappointed".
