Fernandinho believes Manchester City’s exploits during a dominant 2017-18 campaign will secure them a place in football folklore for the next 100 years.

Pep Guardiola’s side have swept to the Premier League title, with the top-flight crown secured in record-equalling time .

An historic 18-game winning run earlier in the season laid the foundations for success, and there is the promise of more records to come .

Victory over Huddersfield on Sunday will carry them to a new high of 96 points, while boasting 31 wins.

They also need just two more goals to take them past the current Premier League best of 103.

Fernandinho feels those achievements have secured City a standing among the all-time greats, with their efforts set to live long in the memory.

The Brazilian midfielder told reporters: "It's a fact, we have a clear chance to break those records and we have to go for it. Otherwise it doesn't make sense to play football anymore.

"We have three games and have the chance to break most of the records and we're going to do that. It helps us to keep our performance and play the same way as we have all season.

"In 100 years it will be remembered that Manchester City in 2017-18 broke all those records and played amazing football."

"It will be a good atmosphere on Sunday."
