Manchester City became the first Premier League side to reach 100 points as the champions capped a fine season in style thanks to a 1-0 win at Southampton yesterday. Pep Guardiola's side have been focused on rewriting the record books since clinching the English title almost a month ago and they added one last landmark achievement on the final day of the season.

Gabriel Jesus struck with virtually the last kick at St Mary's to take City to the century mark in suitably dramatic fashion. Guardiola's wild celebration with his backroom staff showed what it meant to the Spaniard for City to achieve yet another incredible feat. City's 100-point haul comes after they set a new Premier League points record by beating Brighton in midweek, taking them past the total set by Chelsea in 2004-05.

They also scored the most goals in a single EPL campaign (106), won the most games (32) and amassed the most consecutive wins (18) that has seen them ranked along with the best teams in EPL history. City finished 19 points clear of second placed Man United — the biggest title-winning margin in the EPL era.
