100 points, record wins, record goals - Manchester City's incredible Premier League season

Recent history suggests that the only thing harder than winning the title is defending it, and perhaps gives the teams trailing in City's wake some kind of reassurance.

The City boss joked that it was "easy" to collect a record 100 points on the season before adding that he is looking forward to spending the summer on the sofa.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes admitted to mixed feelings after his side escaped relegation despite conceding an injury-time victor to champions Manchester City at St Mary's in their season finale on Sunday.

His first season as City manager ended with the team 15 points adrift of champions Chelsea.

Huddersfield defeated Manchester United for the first time in 65 years in October to seal their place at the top of this list as the most surprising result of the season.

Next season undoubtedly has a slew of treats and surprises, such as who will be named successor to Arsene Wenger at Arsenal and whether or not Antonio Conte will get the axe after guiding Chelsea to a disappointing fifth-placed finish in the Premier League table.

"Now is the time to enjoy what we've done this season", Guardiola told City fans.

It is thought that the midfielder favours staying in the Premier League, and Neville feels that Arsenal could offer him a fresh challenge.

Jesus's late strike ensured City took local rivals Manchester United's record winning margin of 18 points in the 1999/2000 season.

Younger generations of footballers will be educated by the way he led the Manchester City midfield with composure on and off the ball.

"This season, they were a big contender and they will be again next season".

"I want to say thank you to the fans, my teammates, the staff, the club and especially to the manager for understanding my situation".

Now City have topped that with an unprecedented 32 wins. "They had a different attitude, motivation, and desire than we had". The Stockport lad is only 17 years old.

Wilfried Zaha netted his ninth goal of the season as 11th-placed Crystal Palace rounded off their season with a 2-0 home win over relegated West Bromwich Albion.

Those who watched him closely during his time with AS Roma knew that Liverpool were getting a player much more lethal and well-rounded than the one which struggled to make an impact at Chelsea, but few could have predicted what Salah accomplished in his debut season with Liverpool.
