Manchester City's Premier League title parade draws around 100k fans

Pep Guardiola Danilo Manchester City 2017-18

This year's champions, Manchester City, registered most passes in the Premier League over the course of their title-winning season - with Pep Guardiola's side making a total of 28,241.

A last-minute victor from Gabriel Jesus against Southampton on Sunday saw the champions become the first team ever to reach three figures for points in a single 38-game campaign in the competition.

City's parade began close to Manchester Cathedral and travelled down Deansgate before turning past Albert Square and the town hall.

City became the first top flight club in English history to reach a century of points in a single season with Sunday's 1-0 win at Southampton on the final day. It ended with a stage show back on Deansgate. "Next season you will see us again!"

The only two players who were missing were striker Sergio Aguero, who has returned to Argentina for treatment on his knee ahead of the World Cup, and midfielder David Silva.

City seek a century as Swansea hope for a miracle

Silva, who was given leave whenever he requested it during the season, sent a recorded message.

"Thank you for understanding my situation. Thank you very much".

The majority of the City first-team squad were there to celebrate, including Yaya Toure, who will be leaving on a free transfer at the end of the season.

"I want to apologise for not being able to celebrate here with you today", he said.

A number of other players were also given opportunity to speak, including Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne.
