Man City already odds-on for title defence

Huddersfield secured Premier League survival with a 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Wednesday

18 - Beginning with a 2-1 win at Bournemouth on August 26 and concluded by 1-0 triumph at Newcastle on December 27, City set a Premier League best of 18 consecutive victories. "You can not achieve what we achieve in terms of many records if you are not a humble team, professional, (that) has that desire to win".

And that was the most surprising result of the Premier League season that left United five points behind their title rivals.

Otherwise, it has been a wonderful season in the blue half of Manchester, and one pundit has claimed that this is now the Citizens' chance to go on and dominate the English top flight for years to come.

Pep Guardiola's team also scored the most goals (106) and won the most games on their way to winning the Premier League title by a record 19 points.

City are the first team in top division history to reach the 100-point mark.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring with his 32nd of the campaign - the most by a player in a 38-game Premier League season.

Jesus' late salvo came exactly six years on from Sergio Aguero's unforgettable injury-time victor against QPR to snatch the title in 2012. "Next season you will see us again!"

Guardiola revealed he meant to have a good rest as he addressed crowds following the Premier League champions' open-top bus parade on Monday.

Last night, City took their EPL points tally to a record 100 by beating Southampton 1-0, thanks to an injury-time goal by Gabriel Jesus.

"He told me that he is happy with what I am doing".

Maybe that's why the only recent champions to buck the trend were the more attack-oriented Manchester City sides of 2013 and 2015. I need to say thanks to the followers, my team-mates, the employees, membership and particularly to the supervisor for understanding my scenario.

Instrumental to City's miserly goals-against tally - they finished with a goal difference of +79 - was goalkeeper Ederson, and the Brazilian signed a new contract extension on Sunday evening to commit himself to the club until 2025.

Star man: Wayne Rooney led the way in the goals column (10, all of which we scored before Christmas), but just about every statistical metric available pegged him as one of Everton's worst-rated players this season. Adjusting Liverpool's efforts in the 1978-79 season to three points for a win, the overall record stood at 98.
