Manchester City's record breaking season by the numbers

14 May 2018

Champions Manchester City finished the season on a record 100 points after Gabriel Jesus scored with nearly the final touch against Southampton, who secured Premier League survival despite losing.

City finished 19 points clear of second placed Manchester United - the biggest title-winning margin in the Premier League era - to emphasis the gap between the runaway champions and the chasing pack.

The 34-year-old midfielder was a true great of the game upon his arrival at the Etihad, but he became even better at City as they ended United's domination of the Manchester football scene.

Ayoze Perez scored twice after Dwight Gayle's opener to ensure Rafael Benitez's Newcastle finished an impressive 10th in the table, while Antonio Conte's side had to settle for fifth and a shot at the FA Cup in Saturday's final against Manchester United.

Swansea needed a miracle to stay up at the expense of Southampton but their 2-1 defeat at home to already-relegated Stoke put paid to any dreams of survival.

Mauricio Pochettino's side trailed three times, but a brace each for Erik Lamela and Harry Kane - the latter reached 30 goals for the league season as a result - along with an own goal from Christian Fuchs gave them victory.

There was never much chance of that but City's thrilling season was capped by another piece of individual brilliance, with Gabriel Jesus producing a superb lobbed victor in the 94th minute to spark wild celebrations. We give them two days and then go to a camp.

Palestinians are seeking the right to return to homes from which they were displaced after the 1948 founding of Israel. Sinwar was freed in a prisoner swap with Israel in 2011 and was elected as the movement's Gaza chief in 2017.

City have won an incredible 32 times in the Premier League - two ahead of Chelsea from last season.

On a day of farewells, with more than half the managers either departing or with questions about their future and several distinguished players ending their club careers, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger signed off with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield.

Swansea paid tribute to long-serving custodians Angel Rangel and Leon Britton before kickoff.

The win breaks our Club record of 31 wins in a single season, which we managed under Kevin Keegan in 2001-02 in a 46-game campaign in the second tier of English football. They also were level at 4 following Jamie Vardy's second of the night when Kane completed his brace.

"I have been able to make an impact", he said.

"Do I feel relief?"

Don't tell these clubs they had nothing to play for...
