De Bruyne's thunderbolt put the result beyond doubt early in the second half, before former Monaco playmaker Bernardo Silva netted the rebound from Jesus' saved penalty - the Brazil striker getting in on the act in the closing minutes.
The defeat leaves Swansea four points above the drop zone with four games left, including a vital home fixture with fellow strugglers Southampton. It's not easy against them, we attacked really well.
Sky Sports were forced to hold their post-game show in the tunnel as fans took over the pitch. "If we are improving it will be good for the new season, finishing in a good way".
The ever-demanding Guardiola was delighted his team kept their foot hard down on the pedal and believes the incentive of breaking records will help them retain their focus in the remaining games.
The 26-year-old scored a 25-yard screamer in the Citizens' 5-0 win against Swansea City on Sunday afternoon to maintain his impressive form. I am sorry, maybe with numbers, there are numbers guys better than him, but no player in this season with the team who wins [the title] five games before the end, he was the best.
"Always you drop the focus after winning".
"When they had the ball we pressed so good and so intense and then when we had the ball we had to keep it moving, moving, moving, playing simple until we had the chance to play a final pass". They show how happy they are and that is the most attractive thing.
"Now it's important to finish with a good feeling for our fans".
"I was not exhausted", Wenger said after Arsenal's 4-1 victory over West Ham.
"The fans have reacted amazingly and it means a lot to us", Guardiola added.
Maurizio Sarri's Napoli might once again fail in their title bid this season, but there is no denying that the team has some classy players.
"Just arriving on the bus, the way people look at us and celebrate in the stadium and jump".
There was no threat involved in the celebrations and Mendy - who had made his first appearance for seven months as a substitute - could even be seen jumping up and down and joining in with the boisterous City fans.
