All the Premier League records broken and equalled by Pep Guardiola's champions

All the Premier League records broken and equalled by Pep Guardiola's champions

The Champions League final will, however, determine which pot the Reds end up in for the group stage draw: win in Kiev and they will be seeded in pot 1, lose and they will be in pot 3.

Guardiola will join Gary Neville to look back on the season, and how he masterminded the first three-figure Premier League points tally in history courtesy of City's 1-0 win at Southampton on Sunday. In this campaign, Sean Dyche's men won seven away games and accrued 28 points.

"So far, it was always a bit, 'Come on, let's not talk about it, we have to play this game and this game first.' Now, we will be ready and that's really cool". They've also scored the most goals ever in a Premier League season, with 106, and have recorded the most wins in a Premier League season, with 32.

Though Southampton could still have been relegated today mathematically, Saints fans knew their team's survival was all but guaranteed and there was a party atmosphere for much of the game at St. Mary's, made even better as news filtered in of Swansea's defeat to Stoke.

Hughes' side had all but confirmed their Premier League status for next season ahead of the match following their midweek victory at Swansea, but came agonisingly close to rounding their campaign off with an impressive draw against the champions only for Brazil global Jesus to score with virtually the last kick of the game. "It's a record which will stay for long". "Next season will be the same, like [Manchester] United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham". That is not to say they can't defend - they have conceded fewer goals than any other team and therefore have a decent case to be regarded as the best defence. It's why he has offered a significant upgrade over last season's starter, Claudio Bravo. They ended their season beating Leicester 5-4 under the Wembley Arch. It's about dominating games and expressing their own potential, and, mentally, creative football is less draining than the super-defensive school of winning by tight margins.

"It's a good club, I'm a professional football manager - I would love the opportunity".

"I see a bright future for my successor because the team has a good attitude and quality." said the Frenchman.
