Pep Guardiola joyous as Manchester City reach record-breaking 100 points

  • Most wins in a Premier League season

The usual thing to say about something like a 100-point record is that it will stand for a long time, except that you sense there is every chance City themselves might surpass it next season. Going back a little further, Manchester United's champions of 2013 won the league with 89 points, and collapsed to 64 under David Moyes a year later.

At +79, City beat the goal difference record of +71 set by Chelsea in 2009-10.

The Champions League final will, however, determine which pot the Reds end up in for the group stage draw: win in Kiev and they will be seeded in pot 1, lose and they will be in pot 3.

Hodgson secured Palace's safety with a game to spare.

Harry Kane scored twice there, but that was not enough for him to catch top scorer Mohamed Salah, despite reaching a career best 30 league goals - as the Egyptian stretched his tally to a record 32 in Liverpool's 4-0 thrashing of Brighton.

Guardiola's men pushed hard in the second half and Raheem Sterling struck the righthand post with a deflected effort before John Stones' header from the resultant corner was tipped over by Alex McCarthy.

Halep lost to Karolina Pliskova 6-4, 6-3, ending her bid to become a three-time consecutive champion in Madrid . I missed in some important moments, that's why it went her way but I'm not very disappointed about this match.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the final scorer of the Wenger era, sliding in to convert Aaron Ramsey's cross in the 38th minute for the only goal.

"Whether that is managing or not ..." "I think the next three or four days he will still need and then he will be fine again".

Guardiola's team have been focused on rewriting the record books since clinching the English title nearly a month ago and they added one last landmark achievement on the final day of the season.

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.

Naby Keita's arrival from RB Leipzig for £52.75m will add extra dynamism and depth to a midfield decimated by injuries in the latter part of this season. "What we showed gives us a lot of hope for the future".
