City beat Southampton to end season with 100 points

Man City not 'huge power' in world football like United says Hughes

Man City not 'huge power' in world football like United says Hughes

Manchester City set the seal on a record-breaking season by becoming the first side in English top flight history to hit 100 points with victory at Southampton on Sunday.

Ederson will surely now be looking to add to his medal collection by helping City retain the Premier League, with next season's Champions League trophy also on his mind.

John Stones just failed to get on the end of De Bruyne's teasing free-kick four minutes into the second period, which City began in the manner of a team stung by some sharp words from their manager. "It means that the club is happy with my work, they trust me, and I hope to meet their expectations on the pitch and bring a lot of joy to the fans", he said in a City statement.

As Jesus whipped off his shirt, wheeling away before being mobbed by his team-mates, Pep Guardiola, his manager, punched the air with both fists before half of his technical area emptied towards the delirious away support. "But hopefully, hopefully he can stay and finish what we have started together in the coming years". You can not achieve 100 points if you drop games. Let us know what you think in the comments section.

"We were better than our opponents and the records we broke came from the way we played".

It was Sir Alex Ferguson's United who previously held the record, having finished 18 points ahead of second-placed Arsenal in the 1999-2000 season, and City needed Fergie time to finally find a breakthrough deep into stoppage time at St Mary's.

In the 56th-minute Fernandinho should have done better than smash a volley horribly over from inside the Southampton box and Jesus was introduced in place of Fabian Delph to give them an attacking focal point. We have done that all season. A Man City corner eventually comes to the feet of Sterling, who makes space for himself before going for goal and his shot is deflected onto the post.

Dusan Tadic, who played a prominent role in Saints' survival with both goals against Bournemouth a fortnight ago, nearly took advantage of the extra space, rounding Claudio Bravo twice before his powerful goal-bound effort was blocked on the line by Fernandinho.

Explaining the calibre of player the Reds need to attract, Collymore wrote: "Firstly, they need a keeper in David de Gea's class and I'm not sure Loris Karius is even half the stopper the Spaniard is". I want the best for my friends and he's a friend of mine and I want the best.
