Southampton v Manchester City - story of the match

Chelsea suffered a 3-0 defeat at Newcastle to finish 5th

Chelsea suffered a 3-0 defeat at Newcastle to finish 5th

The Brazil worldwide joined Pep Guardiola's side from Benfica for £35million last June and, in stark contrast to Claudio Bravo's errant efforts between the posts in 2016-17, the 24-year-old quickly established himself as a pivotal figure in City's dominant title charge.

Spaniard Guardiola noticed his facet set a brand new Premier League factors report of 100, scoring 106 targets alongside the best way.

Jesus' late salvo came exactly six years on from Sergio Aguero's unforgettable injury-time victor against QPR to snatch the title in 2012.

It had looked like both sides were to be made to settle for a point, but substitute Jesus latched onto a delightful long ball from Kevin De Bruyne in the final minute of stoppage time, allowing the Brazilian to lob McCarthy and see City break England's top-flight points record.

"In the Premier League 100 points is a massive achievement".

City finished 19 points clear of second-placed Manchester United - the biggest title-winning margin in the Premier League era - to emphasise the gap between the runaway champions and the chasing pack.

By this time, St Mary's was rocking with news of Stoke holding on to a slender lead over relegation rivals Swansea City, but a cruel late twist was to come. All respect to Swansea, but it is nearly impossible.

"We had to play for something". That made Foden the youngest ever victor of a Premier League medal at the age of 17 years and 350 days, overtaking Gael Clichy, then of Arsenal. They've got a hell of an opportunity to go and do that. "This summer we'll watch the World Cup on the sofa - we'll have some good beer, good red wine and enjoy what we have done".

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. I will speak with them.

"I should give myself a shake really - I'm a little bit flat because I thought we should have won the game against the champions", Hughes told reporters.
