Manchester City set new Premier League record with 100 points

Southampton 0-1 Man City: Saints ease to safety despite loss

City are due to celebrate their title success with an open-top bus parade through the streets of Manchester on Monday.

Pep Guardiola leapt on to the field jubilantly to join the celebrations in the knowledge his team had become the first in English top-flight history to reach 100 points in a single campaign.

- Palace were the first to wield the axe when they sacked Frank de Boer after just four Premier League games - the shortest reign in the competition for a permanent boss in terms of matches managed.

They can do so with victory at Southampton in their final match on Sunday, extending further the competition record they have already set by accruing 97.

"All the records we've broken, it's a effect of the way we played".

Pep Guardiola is readily expecting Liverpool to mount a Premier League title charge next season as Manchester City look to defend their trophy.

As the curtain comes down on the 26th Premier League season, Press Association Sport details some weird and wonderful facts from the 2017-18 campaign.

By this time, St Mary's was rocking with news of Stoke holding on to a slender lead over relegation rivals Swansea City, but a cruel late twist was to come.

"No disrespect to Arsene because he's a fabulous, fabulous manager as we all know. We didn't play flawless for 38 games, but most of the time, we were so good", Guardiola added. That made Foden the youngest ever victor of a Premier League medal at the age of 17 years and 350 days, overtaking Gael Clichy, then of Arsenal. ". maybe people don't believe me but we don't have the money to invest 300 million pounds every season".

Only record goalscorer, Argentinian Sergio Aguero, who is undergoing treatment back home on a knee injury to try and get fit for the World Cup finals, and Spanish forward David Silva - with his young child in Spain - were absent.

"I should give myself a shake really - I'm a little bit flat because I thought we should have won the game against the champions", Hughes told reporters.
