Southampton v Manchester City - story of the match

Manchester City left it late to seal a 100-point Premier League season but Gabriel Jesus was the champions' final day hero as he snatched a 1-0 win deep into stoppage time at Southampton on Sunday.

Ederson is expected to be in Brazil's squad for the World Cup starting next month.

Back in August, Owen named the players he thought would win the Golden Boot, win the Young Player of the Year award, have the biggest impact and be the most exciting to watch. Silva's class and distribution were a calming influence on City. Meanwhile, De Bruyne's assist sees him finish top of the assist chart with 16. Speed, skill and some stunning displays brought the Germany winger 15 assists, three shy of De Bruyne, along with 10 goals. Romelu Lukaku, who has scored top-flight goals for West Brom, Everton and Manchester United, became the 28th player to achieve the feat in March.

City are due to celebrate their title success with an open-top bus parade through the streets of Manchester on Monday. The hosts nearly profiting when Hoedt was left free at the back post, but the defender could only lash into the side-netting.

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.


He is partnered in attack by another of Liverpool's attacking triumvirate.

Opposition striker Jesus broke free towards goal and lofted the ball over the stranded Alex McCarthy with the last kick of the game to send his team to 100 points, but ultimately the mood wasn't dampened after another passionate display from Hughes' men.

James Tarkowski has gone from substitute last season at Burnley to revelation this.

He is partnered in the heart of the defence by Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen.

Even adjusting the old two points for a win to the current three, Liverpool, who enjoyed the previous highest tally in 1978-79, would only have amassed 98 points that season - and that was over a 42-game season.
