Manchester City broke seven more Premier League records today

Manchester City broke seven more Premier League records today

Guardiola's utterly dominant side also set new records for most wins, most away wins, most goals scored, best goal difference and biggest league-winning margin.

Manchester United warmed up for next week's FA Cup final date with Chelsea by beating Watford 1-0 at Old Trafford.

And it came exactly six years to the day since Sergio Aguero scored the goal that won City the title for the first time in the modern era, an injury-time strike against Queens Park Rangers. I repeat from my last press conference, today 100 percent I feel that I am here.

"A lot of goals, concede few, lots of points, wins at home, wins away, everything was ideal this season - and finished the way we deserved to finish", Guardiola said. "The game was complicated, the opponent so strong, and our rhythm was not so high. It was an incredible finish from Gabriel".

Guardiola's team have been focused on rewriting the record books since clinching the English title nearly a month ago and they added one last landmark achievement on the final day of the season. Let us know what you think in the comments section. City went on to win the final and end a 35-year wait for a trophy, validating the vast expenditure lavished on the club since Sheikh Mansour's takeover in 2008. From start to finish we have been down there. "What we have done this season, for all the staff, Mikel, his contribution, was outstanding, amazing".

"Clearly there's work to be done immediately after the season, decisions have to be made in terms of recruitment and retention of the players".

"In terms of playing football, yes".

It was Sir Alex Ferguson's United who previously held the record, having finished 18 points ahead of second-placed Arsenal in the 1999-2000 season, and City needed Fergie time to finally find a breakthrough deep into stoppage time at St Mary's. But this is Guardiola's City. The Saints had a poor season in contrast as they secured Premiership survival on the last day of the season. A Man City corner eventually comes to the feet of Sterling, who makes space for himself before going for goal and his shot is deflected onto the post.

Southampton defender Wesley Hoedt came closest to opening the scoring before the break when he hit the crossbar in the eighth minute, while Dusan Tadic nearly settled the match in the hosts' favour before Brazil striker Jesus signed off ahead of the World Cup with a thrilling last-gasp salvo. Then McCarthy tipped Stones' header over the bar. Bravo comes out and Tadic takes the ball past him twice before eventually shooting, only for Fernandinho to block the effort on the line.

De Bruyne ends the season with a league-leading 16 assists.
