Southampton poke fun at hotel with one-star review

Needing to beat Stoke, Southampton to lose to Manchester City and a 10-goal swing in goal difference in their favour, Swansea were realistically relegated when Huddersfield guaranteed their survival by holding Chelsea on Wednesday.

Manchester City passed the 100-point mark to round off their Premier League campaign in stunning fashion as Gabriel Jesus' late strike secured victory over Southampton on Sunday to break a host of long-standing records.

Aside from the new all-time English top flight points record, City have also set new benchmarks for Premier League goals (106), wins (32) and points clear of the second-placed team (19).

Liverpool warmed up for this month's (May 26) Champions League final against Real Madrid with goals from Salah - who won the Golden Boot as league top scorer with a record total for a 38-game season - Dejan Lovren, Dominic Solanke and Andrew Robertson sealing a place in next season's top-tier European competition.

"One-hundred points, I still can not believe it", he said in his postmatch news conference. Guardiola said. "When you win for 100 points it's something special for the club".

Swansea and Stoke, two sides who conceded 124 goals between them this season, could only wish for such solidity at the back.

"In terms of playing football, yes".

Added Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson: "Not many people would say we would get to the Champions League final".

Guardiola leapt out of his seat in the dugout to punch the air while Jesus whipped off his shirt in celebration in front of City's delirious fans. From start to finish we have been down there.

Their victory on the road at St Mary's also means they have recorded more away wins (16) and collected more away points (50) than any other team, with Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side in 2004-05 the previous record holder.

It is one of several records City have collected this year.

"The favourite [thing] is the way we play", he said.
