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.

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

City play Southampton at St Mary's on Sunday and Guardiola, whose side were crowned champions on April 15, is targeting a win to reach 100 points.

5 - City won the Premier League with five games to spare, equalling the top-flight record also achieved by Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

City finished 19 points clear of second placed Manchester United - the biggest title-winning margin in the Premier League era - to emphasis the gap between the runaway champions and the chasing pack. "I think it's a record that will stay long". All season we didn't surrender, we never gave up and tried until the end.

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.

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

As well as winning the most points by an English top-flight side in a single campaign, City's 32nd win broke Tottenham's 57-year-old record for victories in a single top-flight season, BBC reports.

City romped to the title as they hit the 100 point mark. 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.
