Manchester City had the Premier League title wrapped up over ten days ago and with the club's first UEFA Champions League final on the horizon, their final day fixture against Everton had little to no meaning. 

Despite all that, Pep Guardiola still fielded a strong side and City smashed Everton by five goals. 

Two of which came from their all-time leading goalscorer, Sergio Aguero, who played his final match as a City player. 

Aguero also set a new Premier League record as he moved his goal tally to 184 in the top-flight for City. He has now taken the record for most goals in the league with one club off of Wayne Rooney who managed 183 with Manchester United

Story of the game

Everton started well with two shots on target in the opening five matches. Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Glyfi Sigurdsson had shots at Ederson but failed to test the Brazilian goalkeeper. 

It did not take long for City to find their groove as they scored two goals in the space of four minutes. The first came in the 11th minute when Mahrez found De Bruyne who struck from distance and found Jordan Pickford's bottom left corner with pin-point accuracy. 

City restored control of the game and played with great freedom as they doubled their lead. This time at the fault of Michael Keane who was aimlessly dribbling into the midfield and Fernandinho stopped him in his tracks. The ball found its way to Jesus out on the left-hand-side of the 18-yard-box before he cut onto his right foot and slotted past Pickford. That was Jesus' 50th goal in the league for Man City, he becomes only the seventh player to do so for the club.

Everton then won a penalty after half an hour when Richarlison was brought down in the box by Ruben Dias. Everton boss, Carlo Ancelotti, was livid that Dias was not sent off for what he believed to be a goal-scoring opportunity. Sigurdsson stepped up and stroked the penalty to Ederson's right who made a great save to prevent any thoughts of a comeback for the Toffees. 

City went into the halftime break two goals to the good. 

He had a relatively quiet first half for his standards but Phil Foden made it 3-0 early in the second half with a neat right-footed finish after a wonderful team move by City. 

Every time City went forward, they attacked with purpose and intent. This time it was the substitute, Rodri, who had an excellent chance to make it 4-0. Sterling cut the ball back and Rodri swung at it with his left-foot but it was sent way into the stands. 

Aguero was introduced for the final time after the hour-mark. It is fare to say he received an unbelievable reception from the 10,000 home fans. A little less than six minutes later and he got himself on the score sheet. Aguero cut in from the right and poked it past Pickford effortlessly with the outside of his boot for City's fourth goal of the afternoon.

He then scored again for City with a well-placed header to make it 5-0 to the home side. That goal meant he set a new record for the most goals in the Premier League for one club (184). Which was previously set by Wayne Rooney for Manchester United with 183. 

Aguero nearly had a hat-trick but Pickford made an excellent save to deny his headed effort. 

The full-time whistle blew and City lifted the Premier League trophy for the fifth time. It means Guardiola's side have also managed to win 10 of the last 15 domestic trophies available to them.
