Pep Guardiola hails ideal end to record-breaking season

Manchester City team news Confirmed line-ups for Premier league final day clash v Southampton

Most points: City became the first team in English top-flight history to reach 100 points thanks to Gabriel Jesus' injury-time victor on the final day of the season.

Most passes: Again the statistics only go back to 2010-11 and again Guardiola's City set the record during his first season with 20,506 completed passes at an average 84 percent completion.

Opposition striker Jesus broke free towards goal and lofted the ball over the stranded Alex McCarthy with the last kick of the game to send his team to 100 points, but ultimately the mood wasn't dampened after another passionate display from Hughes' men. "In the Premier League 100 points is a massive achievement. I am addicted and I don't think that can be cured", Wenger said.

"All season we didn't surrender, we never gave up and tried until the end. It was an awesome finish from Gabriel".

City's 100-point haul comes after they set a new Premier League points record by beating Brighton in midweek, taking them past the total set by Chelsea in 2004-05.

Guardiola went on to praise City's youngsters Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz who got Premier League winners medals for their contribution this season.

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has signed a two-year contract extension with the club. I want the best for my friends and he's a friend of mine and I want the best.

Pep Guardiola's record-breaking side looked like missing out on an historic win on the south coast before substitute Jesus lobbed home to secure a 1-0 success with nearly the final kick of the game.

"We achieved more points in this time than Stoke, Southampton, Huddersfield, West Brom and Bournemouth and the same as Leicester".

But in reality a defeat will also mean they stay up, with Swansea needing to to beat Stoke with a 10-goal swing in their favour in order to stay up.

City will celebrate on the streets of Manchester on Monday with an open-top bus parade.

But they had no intention of letting the impending party distract them on the south-coast.

The Saints almost broke the deadlock on Sunday after just eight minutes when Wesley Hoedt rattled the crossbar with a thumping header following a corner.

McCarthy came to Southampton's rescue after 62 minutes as he produced a good save to keep out John Stones' header just moments before Raheem Sterling hit the upright.

"Now they (Foden, Diaz) are champions".
