Manchester City won the league with 5 games still left to be played and became only the third team in English league history after Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85) to achieve the feat in 33 games.

David Silva and Leroy Sane are also in double figures and if Raheem Sterling, now on eight, can join them they will be the first team ever with four players reaching that mark.
"I think we share one thing - he's been able to transfer to the team that hunger and desire to never be satisfied".
