City reached 97 points, two more than Chelsea's total from the 2004-05 season, and 105 goals, two more than Chelsea's previous record haul from the 2009-10 season.
City manager Pep Guardiola has urged his players to focus on beating Brighton to give the 34-year-old a fitting send off and opposing boss Hughton feels Toure deserves recognition. Can they do it?
Toure also famously scored twice at Newcastle in the penultimate game of the 2011-12 season to set up City's dramatic last-day title triumph, and converted the deciding penalty in a shootout with Liverpool to clinch the League Cup in 2016, having scored in the final of the same competition against Sunderland two years earlier.
After he had come off in the 86th minute to a fabulous reception, Toure's elder brother Kolo, another former City favourite, presented him with a commemorative shirt. I think, especially, the Brighton team didn't want me to score but the most important thing was we broke the record, we scored more goals.
The new records set by City in this game saw them surpass Chelsea in all three categories.
Mark Williams lands third world snooker title
Higgins was beaten, but he had played his part in one of the greatest Crucible finals. And Williams has already made his promise, should he retain his title next year.
"Hopefully we can make a good game and dedicate it to him", Guardiola added.
However, Guardiola always valued Toure's influence as a player, on and off the field.
"But in terms of statistics and numbers, this season we were the best, and that's why we are so satisfied". He lives only a short time from here, and he's loved, from what I felt today in the crowd, and the people in locker room now. "A team will arrive and do better but they'll have to do really well". City captain Vincent Kompany made a point of getting Toure to hold one handle of the trophy as it was lifted to the backdrop of fireworks, flames and tickertape. That is a winning team and the character this team have to have if you want to compete with Barcelona and Madrid, because they are the same. In football one more year is a lot and we're going to talk to the club.
