Man City record will be tough to break-Guardiola

Adjust Comment Print

As already mentioned, no other team had ever reached the 100-point mark across a single campaign in England's top flight.

Champions Manchester City finished the season on a record 100 points after Gabriel Jesus scored with nearly the final touch against Southampton, who secured Premier League survival despite losing.

City have made a habit of breaking new statistical ground while turning the title race into a procession.

The Spaniard will assess what's changed at the Etihad since his first season in English football finished with City ending fourth in the division - before running away with it at the second time of asking. The victory helped move the 2017/18 champions to the magical 100 point mark for the campaign. Numbers are numbers, but the way we played. Defeats to Liverpool and Manchester United and draws against Everton, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Huddersfield Town are the only blots on their record.

Manchester City beat Southampton by a goal to nil on the final day of the English Premier League. Their 16 away wins also represents a competition best. City have set competition records for wins, goals scored and points acquired during their march to glory in 2017-18. 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.

1 - Guardiola is the first Spanish manager to win the Premier League.

79 - No Premier League side has ever had a larger positive goal difference.
