City reach 100 points as Jesus strikes late

Manchester City passed the 100-point mark to round off their Premier League campaign in stunning fashion as Gabriel Jesus' late strike secured victory over Southampton on Sunday to break a host of long-standing records.

And for Swansea to survive relegation, they needed to beat Stoke while Southampton lost to Manchester City and a 10 goal difference was made up.

Keeping clean sheets hasn't been a problem for West Brom recently, not after blanking Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Guardiola insists his side can get even better but he doesn't believe that City can beat the records they set this season for most points, most goals and most wins. Nick Miller came close, picking all four teams, but he had Liverpool in third place and Tottenham in fourth.

The 0-0 draw midweek for Huddersfield also meant that Swansea was all but relegated to the EFL Championship next season.

And Lambert's side forged ahead before the interval, Crouch stooping to head in a cross from Lasse Sorenson, the youngest player to start a Premier League game for Stoke at 18 years, 204 days.

And defender Angel Rangel, who is to depart, called on the Swansea board to ensure the club return swiftly to the top flight.

Chelsea and Arsenal, two London clubs that were consistent participants in Champions League, will compete in Europa League.

"One hundred points is a lot - 50 points at home, 50 points away". "It was my last game after 1,235 times - it's maybe time - but it was a special day".

West Ham manager David Moyes stated his case for a contract extension after they ended the season with a 3-1 win over his former team Everton.

In the 22nd minute, Huddersfield fans joined Arsenal supporters in rising to their feet inside the John Smith's Stadium to applaud Wenger in his 1,235th game in charge of the Gunners.

"Our rhythm was not so high but during the game we were focused and at the end the excellent pass from Kevin and awesome finish from Gabriel made the difference to achieve that".

"Whether that is managing or not". "I will think about Swansea and myself".

Chelsea's record of 95 from the 2004/05 fell as City beat Brighton in midweek and Gabriel Jesus's stoppage time victor at Southampton took City into three figures for points. Jesus removed his shirt and twirled it in celebration in front of City's supporters.

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