Manchester City looking to finish with a flourish

Huddersfield secured Premier League survival with a 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Wednesday

Huddersfield secured Premier League survival with a 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Wednesday

The Brazil worldwide joined Pep Guardiola's side from Benfica for £35million last June and, in stark contrast to Claudio Bravo's errant efforts between the posts in 2016-17, the 24-year-old quickly established himself as a pivotal figure in City's dominant title charge.

City's 100-point haul comes after they set a new Premier League points record by beating Brighton in midweek, taking them past the total set by Chelsea in 2004-05. "People say you won because you invest a lot, they are right".

City announced the contract extension for Ederson on Sunday, the day the Premier League season ended.

"All of the competitions, but for me the Champions League is without a doubt a very special competition for us, and it is my dream to win it in Manchester City's shirt".

Jesus' late salvo came exactly six years on from Sergio Aguero's unforgettable injury-time victor against QPR to snatch the title in 2012. "After that there'll be consequences - if we are going to break (records) or not".

At the other end of the table, a late run of results wasn't enough to prevent West Bromwich Albion from being relegated to the Championship, with Swansea City and Stoke City the other two teams dropping down to the second tier. All respect to Swansea, but it is nearly impossible.

Here, we have a look at some of their most astonishing numbers. "Southampton obviously deserve to be in the Premier League".

"Hopefully we can come together and grow with this".

Only record goalscorer, Argentinian Sergio Aguero, who is undergoing treatment back home on a knee injury to try and get fit for the World Cup finals, and Spanish forward David Silva - with his young child in Spain - were absent.

"Some days I will be here because the kids are in school, some days I'll be in Manchester with (director of football) Txiki (Begiristain) or (chief executive) Ferran (Soriano)".

Speaking after his title victory, Guardiola told reporters: "I'm pretty sure this season they were a big contender and they will be next season".

"But we have mobile phones and I do need to leave Manchester a little bit and have holidays with wife and kids".
