Guardiola made the statement while speaking at a pre-match conference, before the Premier League clash with Swansea, hoping his side can go on to set new records after clinching the title with five games left to play.

On duty for the first time since being crowned champions, Pep Guardiola's side delighted their joyous home support with a wonderful display of their attacking qualities and a 5-0 scoreline.

He may be flying high at the top of the Premier League right now, but back in his first game in charge of Manchester City, Pep Guardiola required a Paddy McNair own-goal to ensure that the Sky Blues kept all three points in Manchester against Sunderland.

"You know you have a clean strike, you feel it, it's very hard for the keeper to catch it".

"All the numbers put them at a level and we are not playing in this level. We are going to try to play with the best team possible".

De Bruyne made it three after the break with a thunderous effort, Bernardo Silva grabbed the fourth by following up after Lukas Fabianski tipped Gabriel Jesus's penalty on to the post, and Brazilian Jesus headed home the fifth late on.

Quiet to finish the weekend; rain returns next week
Even when there are breaks in the rain, it will continue to stay on the cloudy side as overnight lows bottom out in the 40s. Temperatures in the 60s area wide as rain has moved east and drier air is pushing into the region from the Northwest.


The Brazilian, who had been starved off the scoresheet by the post and Swansea's goalkeeper, finally got his goal when he headed home a lovely ball from Yaya Toure.

"The stats are good and that is why we won the league five games before the end".

Supporters gathered at Etihad Stadium before kick-off to parade replica trophies, fly flags and welcome the champions on arrival. They are Premier League records, according to Opta, which started providing statistics for the league in the 2003-04 season.

Kevin De Bruyne added to his Man City account this afternoon in spectacular fashion against relegation-threatened Swansea City, and it might be his best strike of the entire campaign. United's 2007/08 generation of Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney exemplified this as they played in front of a defence that conceded just 22 goals that season. If they are happy, I like to be close with the team, too. For Swansea, the team is four points clear of the drop zone and a draw here will feel like a win. But with a second headed chance, this time more hard from Toure's cross, he was able to head over the Polish goalkeeper to make it 5-0.

Carlos Carvalhal made one adjustment - Luciano Narsingh being replaced by Mike van der Hoorn, as the manager continued Swansea City's survival bid.
