EPL: Manchester City Broke 7 Records To Win

Pep Guardiola reacted to the team's 106th league goal of the season by leaping out of his seat in the dugout and punching the air.

The Frenchman's arrival in 1996 heralded a change in English football, with his fluid playing style matched by his innovation, especially in areas of training and nutrition, and his three Premier League titles made Arsenal a force again.

Not just this year, like Manchester United and Liverpool, but in all seasons prior.

"You can not achieve what we achieve in terms of many, many records if you are not a humble team, professional, and have that desire to take the ball and win and win and win", said an ecstatic Pep Guardiola after Gabriel Jesus' stoppage-time victor against Southampton aided Manchester City in eclipsing the 100-point barrier as the 2017-18 English Premier League season drew to a close. A lot of goals, concede few, lots of points, wins at home, wins away, everything was ideal this season - and finished the way we deserved to finish. The victory marked the 16 time City have won away from home in the Premier League this season, one more than Chelsea achieved under Mourinho in 2004-05.

Antonio Conte's Chelsea record of 30 wins last season lasted only one term, with City bringing up their 32nd victory of the season at Southampton on the final day. However, considering the European ambitions of the Sheikh Mansour-owned club, Guardiola has a more arduous task at hand.

Egypt winger Mohamed Salah scored a historic opening goal for Liverpool, and now holds the EPL record of 32 goals in a 38-match season, breaking the previous record of 31 goals held by Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alan Shearer.

Despite finishing 37 points adrift of City in sixth, Wenger is bullish about the squad he has left behind's chances of challenging next season.

To get 100 points and only lose 14 points in the whole season - to manage that is something special.

Carlos Carvalhal says Swansea's American owners have asked him whether he would be available to remain as manager next season.
