City hit 100 premier league points, after last minute grasp from Jesus

Gabriel Jesus scored a dramatic added time victor to take City to the magical 100-point mark.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has made a big prediction that it will be quite some time before any team beats the 100 points his side reached in the final minute of their triumphant Premier League season on Sunday. This might have seemed a bit over the top given the fact that they've already won the league, but this goal clinched seven more records to add to Manchester City's impressive season. "I think it's a record that will stay long".

He said: "We will try to win the game".

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.

Here, we have a look at some of their most astonishing numbers.

However, Gabriel Jesus' late victor at Southampton took City to 32 victories, which means that they now also have the overall record for an English top-flight season - previously held by Tottenham Hotspur, who recorded 31 wins in the old First Division in 1960-61. "We didn't play flawless for 38 games but most of the time we were so good", Guardiola added.

Fortunately for fourth bottom Southampton, the defeat didn't matter in their battle to avoid relegation as third bottom Swansea lost against Stoke, ensuring Mark Hughes' side avoided the drop by three points. But they had no intention of letting the impending party distract them on the south-coast. A corner from Dusan Tadic was met by Wesley Hoedt who saw his header come back off the upright and away for a goal kick. "But the second half was much better".

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.
