    Manchester City made multiple history when they broke three Premier League records held by Chelsea in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Brighton at the Etihad including a new benchmark for points in a single season.

    Former Real Madrid defender Danilo found the net in the 16th minute which is his third league goal of the season to give the English Champions the lead before Leonardo Ulloa headed home in the 20th minute to give Chris Hughton tutored Brighton and Hove Albion an equalizer.

    Manchester City responded with a greater fire as Bernardo Silva’s 34th strike put City ahead to make it 2-1 and their 104th goal of the season and with that Guardiola ’s side break Chelsea’s record of 103 goals which they managed under Carlo Ancelotti in 2009/10. Fernandinho added City’s 105th goal of the campaign in the 72nd minute as yet more records fell for Chelsea.

    City scored three or more goals in 21 Premier League games out of 38. It was, without doubt, one of the most impressive title-winning campaigns in the history of the competition. Pep Guardiola tutored Manchester City side also blew the competition away as they established a new record for Premier League wins in a season with 31, breaking the record set by Antonio Conte’s team last season.

    City started the season on a high by recording a 22-game unbeaten run which included a record-breaking total of 18 consecutive Premier League wins between August and December. Manchester City were touted to go the season undefeated in the premier league but their hopes of going unbeaten were ended by Liverpool in January.

    Incredibly, Guardiola’s side have racked up 95 points in the English top flight breaking a record of 93 points in a single season set by Jose Mourinho tutored Chelsea side in the 2004/05 campaign.
