"It's 100 points. still I can not believe it", the Catalan told a post-match news conference.

A bow has been tied on the 2017-18 Premier League season, and what a season it's been.

"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.

Pickford's performance in Everton's 3-1 defeat to West Ham on the final day of the season was terrible but for the most part, he enjoyed a fine season between the sticks. "It was an unbelievable finish from Gabriel".

Spaniard Guardiola noticed his facet set a brand new Premier League factors report of 100, scoring 106 targets alongside the best way. And Jesus seemed the most likely man to do it. City started the match without an out-and-out striker but whereas it has worked for them in the past, they needed the introduction of Jesus on the hour mark to step up their threat.

That heavy investment paid off with City winning the Premier League and League Cup, but Guardiola said fans should not expect similar spending. "After that there'll be consequences - if we are going to break (records) or not".

- Two more players joined the 100-goal club during the season. They can go down only if they lose, Swansea City beat Stoke City and there is a ten-goal swing in the Welsh club's favour.

Guardiola collected his accolade at the LMA Awards dinner in London on Tuesday night, having 24 hours earlier enjoyed celebrating City's triumph with an open-top bus parade around Manchester.

But they had no intention of letting the impending party distract them on the south coast.

Southampton: Alex McCarthy 7, Cedric Soares 6, Maya Yoshida 7, Jack Stephens 7, Wesley Hoedt 8, Ryan Bertrand 7, Dusan Tadic 6, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 7, Oriel Romeu 7, Nathan Redmond 7, Charlie Austin 6. "Southampton obviously deserve to be in the Premier League".

"But for me the Champions League is without doubt a very special competition for us and it is my dream to win it in a Manchester City shirt".
