Manchester City rewrote the Premier League record books as they won the title in style.
Here, Press Association Sport looks at the landmarks achieved by Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering side.
Victory over Southampton, thanks to Gabriel Jesus’ injury-time strike, saw City become the first team ever to reach 100 points in a Premier League season. Chelsea’s 95 points in 2004-05 was the previous best.
The goal was City’s 106th of the campaign, breaking the previous record of 103 set by Chelsea in their 2009-10 title-winning campaign. It is only the fourth three-figure total, with City and Liverpool scoring 102 and 101 respectively in 2013-14, so City are the first club to achieve the feat twice.
City’s 18-game winning run from August to December was the longest ever in the English top flight, pre-dating even the Premier League era. Along the way, they amassed a record-equalling 11 successive away wins, a feat previously achieved by Chelsea in 2008.
City missed out on a new record with derby defeat to Manchester United but matched their neighbours’ previous mark from 2000-01 by winning the league with five games to go.
With a 19-point advantage over United, City outperformed their rivals’ 1999-2000 margin of 18 over Arsenal.

Guardiola was named the Premier League’s top boss in September, October, November and December, the first man ever to win four successive manager of the month awards.
