Man City put a fitting cap on their imperious season by sending yet another record tumbling in their final outing.
It took until the 94th minute, but a Gabriel Jesus lob in stoppage time was enough to see City reach a nice, round 100 points for the campaign – a Premier League first.
That said, they’re still some way from the top of the all-time list..

They may not be on par with that great Barry Town side, but Pep Guardiola’s City team have now also set new records for the most wins in a single top flight campaign (32), most away wins in a Premier League season (16), most away points won in a Premier League season (50), the biggest goal difference ever amassed in a Premier League season (+79) most goals scored in single Premier League season (106), biggest winning margin (19 points).
And we’re entirely certain there’s more where that little lot came from.
In-keeping the spirit of the afternoon, Phil Foden managed eight minutes at the end against the Saints to become the youngest ever player to qualify for a Premier League winners’ medal at just 17 years and 358 days.
Phew. It’s exhausting just trying to keep up.
