Man City record will be tough to break-Guardiola

Man City record will be tough to break-Guardiola

Champions Manchester City became the first club to amass 100 Premier League points after Gabriel Jesus scored a dramatic stoppage-time victor at Southampton.

Liverpool qualified for the Champions League at the expense of Chelsea, Swansea was relegated, and champion Manchester City made it to 100 points as the loose ends were tied up on a typically high-scoring final day of the Premier League season on Sunday.

In a game Swansea needed to win and hope Southampton were thrashed by Manchester City - with a 10-goal swing in the Swans' favour - to keep alive their faint hopes of staying up, the hosts took an early lead through Andy King.

Opposition striker Jesus broke free towards goal and lofted the ball over the stranded Alex McCarthy with the last kick of the game to send his team to 100 points, but ultimately the mood wasn't dampened after another passionate display from Hughes' men. "In the Premier League 100 points is a massive achievement".

Egypt winger Mohamed Salah scored a historic opening goal for Liverpool, and now holds the EPL record of 32 goals in a 38-match season, breaking the previous record of 31 goals held by Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alan Shearer.

Ford suspends production of F-150 trucks
Company officials say they may also shut down the production line at its second F-150 plant in Dearborn, Michigan. Ford has about an 84-day supply of the F-Series truck in dealers' inventories, according to the company.

Southampton can now relax and hopefully look forward to a much stronger campaign in August after what will be an interesting summer of in-comings and out-goings.

"The difference of points tell a lot", said Mourinho. The Saints had a poor season in contrast as they secured Premiership survival on the last day of the season. We have done that all season. "We need to build again".

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea won the EPL golden glove this season, with the Spaniard receiving the award ahead of the match.

It was also the end of an era in England's top flight, with Arsene Wenger taking charge of his final game as Arsenal manager after 22 seasons.

The Argentine is yet to win a trophy as coach and question marks remain over how long the extremely talented young core of the Tottenham team will stay together whilst earning significantly less than their rivals in the top six.
