Manchester City broke seven more Premier League records today

Howard TerryMay 15, 2018

A stunning season that started with a 2-0 win at Brighton on 12 August, ended with a last-gasp win for Pep Guardiola's side, who finished 19 points ahead of nearest rivals Manchester United. However, City refused to let their heads drop and sealed the win with virtually the last kick of the game, Jesus wheeling away to celebrate with the away fans. They were runaway leaders for most of the season and won the league in style, blowing teams away with their intense and expansive brand of football.

"But for me the Champions League is without doubt a very special competition for us and it is my dream to win it in a Manchester City shirt".

Southampton needed a point to make sure of safety but Swansea's 2-1 home defeat by Stoke means Saints will play in the top flight for a seventh successive season.

But Jesus took them into triple digits, making them the first team to complete the achievement, when he beat Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy after taking on Kevin De Bruyne's excellent pass, which saw the Belgian finish top of the assist chart with 16. It is a day for celebration on the blue side of Manchester - though Guardiola will most likely already be preparing for his side's title defence next season.

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.

The Brazil worldwide joined Pep Guardiola's side from Benfica for £35million last June and, in stark contrast to Claudio Bravo's errant efforts between the posts in 2016-17, the 24-year-old quickly established himself as a pivotal figure in City's dominant title charge.

Despite penning an initial six-year deal when he moved to England, City have seen fit to tie their number one down to renewed terms that run until 2025.
