Goals from Danilo, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho saw City, who had suffered a goalless blip against Huddersfield Town on Sunday, take their season's total to 97 points, eclipsing Chelsea's Premier League-era record of 95 set in 2004-05. Can they do it?
Harry Kane celebrates his goal which led to Tottenham clinching a spot in next season's Champions League. The 30 wins they had prior to this game was level with the amount the west London club achieved last season.
Thierry Henry, for Arsenal in 2002-03, is the only player to reach 20 assists in a Premier League season.
Translating those wins into three points per game, Bob Paisley's side would have earned 98 points across 42 games, compared to City's 100 from a 38-game campaign should they win at St Mary's.
So, with this game in mind, what did we learn?

Practically speaking, the series was over when LeBron James hit the greatest bank shot in the history of bank shots to win Game 3. James was once more the tormentor in chief for Toronto, contributing eight rebounds and 11 assists in addition to his 29 points.
But he was also in no rush to look beyond next season in terms of pledging where his future lies and declined the opportunity to answer directly when asked if he would definitely sign a new deal.
"I suppose him and (David) Silva instantly come to mind that have been through a longer period and seen the real progress of this football team".
"We will give him what he deserves, one of the most attractive farewells a player can receive", City manager Pep Guardiola wrote in the match programme. "I just want to say thank you to Yaya".
Captain Vincent Kompnay gave his armband to Toure for the night and was to quick to praise his long-time teammate, who he lifted the Premier Leeague trophy with on Sunday. "Thank you for being a wonderful teammate both in the dressing room and on the pitch".
"He has helped make the club bigger and bigger and bigger", City manager Pep Guardiola said on Tuesday, a day before Toure plays his last home match for the club against Brighton.
