100 - Despite winning six previous league titles across spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, Guardiola has reached 100 points in a season for the first time in his career - surpassing 99 with Barca in 2009-10.

It has been clear since the first few weeks of the season that Manchester City would regain the title this year.

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.

Jesus latched onto a De Bruyne ball and lobbed Alex McCarthy to send Pep Guardiola and the travelling fans into delirium as they reached the 100 point mark for the season. 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. I think it's a record that will stay for a long time.

"Numbers are numbers, they are the effect of the way we played".

As for City, victory today means they have won 32 league games this season - more than any side in the history of the English top flight.

18 - Beginning with a 2-1 win at Bournemouth on August 26 and concluded by 1-0 triumph at Newcastle on December 27, City set a Premier League best of 18 consecutive victories. "We were better than our opponents and the records we broke came from the way we played".

City controlled first-half possession before Saints defender Wesley Hoedt headed against Claudio Bravo's crossbar from a Dusan Tadic corner.

The old record was held by Liverpool, who collected 98 points in the 1978-79 season (adjusted to three points for a win).
