Manchester City set new Premier League record with 100 points

City stormed to glory in England's top flight this term, finishing 19 points ahead of rivals Manchester United in the final standings after Gabriel Jesus' last-gasp victor at Southampton took them to 100 points. With the three added minutes all but up, Kevin De Bruyne launched a long ball over the top for Jesus, who took one touch before casually lifting the ball over the helpless Alex McCarthy to spark huge celebrations in the City end and on the bench.

Substitute Gabriel Jesus scored in the dying embers of injury time in order to hand City three points on the road, leading the Sky Blues to become the first team to earn 100 points in an English top-flight season.

"It's incredible. I don't have words, 100 points!"

Salah's strike after 26 minutes in Sunday's 4-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion set a new Premier League record for most goals in a season in a campaign of remarkable consistency and potency.

Sterling is perhaps the most improved player of the season. The game was so complicated, tough and hot.

A bright start from Southampton saw them put their opponents on the back foot early on. "It was an incredible finish from Gabriel".

Guardiola said: "We stay two days here then go on holidays. You can not achieve 100 points if you drop games and think it doesn't matter", he said.

Unsurprisingly, Trump's Sunday tweet took many in his inner circle by surprise. "It is not a question to me of economics, it is a question of security", Thornberry said.

Jesus' late salvo came exactly six years on from Sergio Aguero's unforgettable injury-time victor against QPR to snatch the title in 2012.

However, could win a record-equalling 13th FA Cup trophy next weekend as they face Chelsea in the final at Wembley Stadium, and Crouch believes United are criticised as much as they are because of how easily they can be targeted.

"They want to try and make it their game".

- 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.

106 - Jesus' goal concluded the most prolific team season in Premier League history. But I think the way they attack and defend is a little bit different.

Speaking after his title victory, Guardiola told reporters: "I'm pretty sure this season they were a big contender and they will be next season".
