Guardiola delighted as City reach 100 points

Champions Manchester City finished the season on a record 100 points after Gabriel Jesus scored with nearly the final touch against Southampton, who secured Premier League survival despite losing.

City, though, made it a record-breaking 16 victories on the road with their dramatic success on Sunday.

100 - Despite winning six previous league titles across spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, Guardiola has reached 100 points in a season for the first time in his career - surpassing 99 with Barca in 2009-10. Numbers are numbers, but the way we played.

Jesus latched onto a De Bruyne ball and lobbed Alex McCarthy to send Pep Guardiola and the travelling fans into delirium as they reached the 100 point mark for the season.

City have also snatched a record off Tottenham that has stood for over half a century, becoming the first team to record 32 wins in an English top-flight campaign since Spurs in 1960-61. Defeats to Liverpool and Manchester United and draws against Everton, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Huddersfield Town are the only blots on their record.

By matching rivals Manchester United's result on the final day of the season, they maintained their 19-point winning margin - the biggest in the Premier League era, overtaking a benchmark that has stood for 18 years. This might have seemed a bit over the top given the fact that they've already won the league, but this goal clinched seven more records to add to Manchester City's impressive season.

1 - Guardiola is the first Spanish manager to win the Premier League.
