Man City record will be tough to break-Guardiola

Man City record will be tough to break-Guardiola

The top assists chart this season clearly reveals City's dominance this season that saw that record an outstanding centurions of Premier League points.

Swansea had needed to win and Southampton to lose to Man City, with a 10-goal swing in goal difference.

Needless to say, unless something insane happened, Liverpool would remain in the top four and Swansea would relegate.

Despite having a typically large share of the possession in the first half, City struggled to break down Southampton's organised defence and rarely troubled Alex McCarthy in goal. He went out with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield.

With a 19-point advantage over United, City outperformed their rivals' 1999-2000 margin of 18 over Arsenal. Still needing a double digit change in goal differential, it was going to be tough.

Andre and Jordan Ayew have become only the second pair of brothers in the Premier League history to be relegated playing for the same team after Swansea City were beaten 2-1 on the final day of the season by Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger signed off after 22 years and 1,235 games in charge with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang grabbing the victor.

So that is the Premier League season. Arsenal already knew they were finishing sixth while Huddersfield Town was already safe from relegation but it was important to send Le Prof out a victor and they did just that.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Burnley, which finished fifth, sixth and seventh respectively, are to compete in the next edition of the Europa League.

Fortunately for fourth bottom Southampton, the defeat didn't matter in their battle to avoid relegation as third bottom Swansea lost against Stoke, ensuring Mark Hughes' side avoided the drop by three points.

A state-of-the-art new 62,000 capacity stadium awaits Tottenham next season, but there isn't much time to settle in with the pressure on to turn four years of progress under Mauricio Pochettino into silverware. Chelsea is off to the Europa League, and in poor form ahead of next week's FA Cup Final against Manchester United.
