Manchester City complete record-breaking Premier League season

Manchester City complete record-breaking Premier League season

The only stain on an otherwise unblemished season has come at the hands of Liverpool, as Guardiola's men boast a century of points in the league - a record-breaking total - while also winning the most matches with 32, and scoring the most goals with 106.

In a season when City scored so many late winners - including a Raheem Sterling goal in the sixth minute of stoppage time in the reverse fixture against Southampton - it seemed fitting they should reach 100 points with virtually the last kick of the season.

Guardiola's wild celebration with his back-room staff showed what it meant to the Spaniard for City to achieve yet another astonishing feat.

"It's 100 points. still I can not believe it", the Catalan told a post-match news conference.

"When you get 100 points, it's something special".

I think the Invincibles was a little easier in that time.

Pickford's performance in Everton's 3-1 defeat to West Ham on the final day of the season was very bad but for the most part, he enjoyed a fine season between the sticks.

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

The chief justice was also informed by the authority of the ongoing verification of degrees of pilots and other airlines' staff. Renato Corona, a late chief justice, was impeached on similar corruption charges. "Lourdes Sereno", he said.

An estimated 100,000 Manchester City supporters filled the sun-kissed streets of the city to hail their team as they paraded the English Premier League trophy on Monday.

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has signed a two-year contract extension, committing him to the Premier League champions for the next seven seasons. Numbers are numbers, but the way we played. "We are really looking forward to seeing him develop at City over the coming years".

But they had no intention of letting the impending party distract them on the south coast.

Opposite number Hughes felt that reward might have been Southampton's after Wesley Hoedt hit the bar and Dusan Tadic saw Fernandinho clear his shot off the line 12 minutes from time.

The theme of strong Saints defending continued in the second-half, and City would go the close through winger Sterling; his fierce strike cannoning off the post following their first real opening of the match.

Guardiola introduced youngsters Brahim Diaz and Phil Foden late on, ensuring both players have registered five appearances to earn a Premier League medal - with Foden becoming the youngest ever victor at 17 years and 350 days old.

The 2017/18 season is at an end with Manchester City tearing up the record books.
