Manchester City hit 100 points Premier League record

Liverpool nab CL spot Swansea relegated from EPL By IANS On

Ederson has quickly settled into Pep Guardiola's side, and his record of 16 clean sheets were only bettered by Manchester United's David De Gea as he helped City to the Premier League title.

The Match of the Day pundit feels that Man City should not be considered a great team based on this season alone and pinpointed their lack of European success as a factor.

Manchester City are the tenth team to have beaten all other teams in a single English top-flight season, and the first since 2010/11. "Wins at home, wins away - everything was ideal this season and we finished the way we deserved to finish".

The 52-year-old former Sheffield Wednesday boss was appointed in December with Swansea bottom of the league and five points from safety, and he oversaw a dramatic turnaround in form before a late-season collapse ended the Welsh club's seven-season stay in the top flight. Another two of Chelsea's records perished as Pep Guardiola's men finished at 100 points and 106 goals.

18 of those wins came successively, in a run spanning from August until the end of December, another record taken from the previous champions.

Despite Guardiola's focus on the attacking areas of his side, City also conceded the fewest goals in the league (27) to secure the biggest goal difference ever seen in the Premier League.

"I don't usually win awards because it's the fellow managers who vote for it", Guardiola added.

Manchester City have accrued more Premier League points this season (100) than eight clubs have in their entire Premier League history - including Oldham (89).

Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool made up the rest of the top four - with former champions Chelsea dropping into the Europa League after a disappointing title defence that saw them finish in fifth place.

Phil Foden is the youngest player to receive a Premier League winner's medal.

Manchester City are really good.
