Jesus latched onto Kevin De Bruyne's long ball in the 94th minute to lob the keeper, prompting incredible scenes in the away end as City became the first team ever to reach 100 points in an English top-flight campaign, even going back beyond the Premier League era.

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.

The 1-0 win over Southampton was the ideal end to a flawless season as the Blues became centurions for a second time having already scored more than 100 goals in the Premier League.

Fresh from leading Manchester City to a record-breaking title win, Pep Guardiola will drop in on a special MNF on Tuesday. The victory helped move the 2017/18 champions to the magical 100 point mark for the campaign.

Here, we have a look at some of their most astonishing numbers.


Pep Guardiola's side had already secured the record for most points in a single season in the English top flight heading into the final game at St Mary's. Defeats to Liverpool and Manchester United and draws against Everton, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Huddersfield Town are the only blots on their record.

As well as hitting three figures for points, City also hit three figures for goals several games ago - though their win over Southampton confirms a best-ever goal difference.

106 - Jesus' goal concluded the most prolific team season in Premier League history.

5 - City won the Premier League with five games to spare, equalling the top-flight record also achieved by Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).
