Champions Manchester City became the first club to amass 100 Premier League points after Gabriel Jesus scored a dramatic stoppage-time victor at Southampton.

Hughes' side had all but confirmed their Premier League status for next season ahead of the match following their midweek victory at Swansea, but came agonisingly close to rounding their campaign off with an impressive draw against the champions only for Brazil worldwide Jesus to score with virtually the last kick of the game.

Guardiola's men pushed hard in the second half and Raheem Sterling struck the righthand post with a deflected effort before John Stones' header from the resultant corner was tipped over by Alex McCarthy.

When Pep Guardiola was officially appointed in the summer of 2016, nearly everyone knew exactly how the former Barcelona boss was going to get his City side playing.

A state-of-the-art new 62,000 capacity stadium awaits Tottenham next season, but there isn't much time to settle in with the pressure on to turn four years of progress under Mauricio Pochettino into silverware.




Liverpool FC are set to travel to Kiev on 26 May to take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Those assists are added to a respectable figure of 8 goals from midfield, a contribution therefore of 24 league goals to City's total.

"We need more consistency to challenge and a little bit more luck with injuries", said Klopp on Sunday. It's why he has offered a significant upgrade over last season's starter, Claudio Bravo.

However, Liverpool's progress in their strongest title challenge of recent times in 2013/14 was undone when Luis Suarez was sold to Barcelona months later.

There were five seconds remaining of their final match away to Southampton when Kevin de Bruyne launched the long ball towards Gabriel Jesus that would win him the new "Playmaker" award for the player with most assists. Chelsea won the league last year with 93 points, but could only manage 70 this year. When Chelsea and Leicester won those titles they knew they couldn't play any better.
