Gabriel Jesus' stunning last-gasp victor gave Manchester City a narrow victory over Southampton, taking Pep Guardiola's side to 100 points for the season - a feat never previously achieved in the Premier League.

The Match of the Day pundit feels that Man City should not be considered a great team based on this season alone and pinpointed their lack of European success as a factor.

Andy King gave Swansea an early lead, but Badou Ndiaye and Peter Crouch scored before halftime to give Stoke only its second victory since Paul Lambert took charge in January.

Guardiola brought the Premier League back to the Etihad Stadium for the first time since 2014 in a season that saw his side also reach the quarter-final of the Champions League, but were defeated 5-1 on aggregate by Liverpool.

Manchester City have broken the record for best goal difference in a Premier League season (79). "Wins at home, wins away - everything was ideal this season and we finished the way we deserved to finish".

Manchester City have broken the record for biggest title-winning margin in a Premier League season (19 points).

18 of those wins came successively, in a run spanning from August until the end of December, another record taken from the previous champions.

"How good were the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea at home in the 2017/18 season?"

That result helped create a celebratory atmosphere among supporters who have witnessed their team register just four league wins and 20 goals on home turf during a wretched 10 months.

Manchester City have accrued as many Premier League points this season (100) as Brighton (40), Cardiff (30) and Swindon (30) have in their combined Premier League histories.

Phil Foden is the youngest player to receive a Premier League winner's medal. "We are really looking forward to seeing him develop at City over the coming years".
