Centurions! All of Manchester City's remarkable Premier League records

Centurions! All of Manchester City's remarkable Premier League records

United lost away to Huddersfield Town on the subsequent matchday to fall five points behind.

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 dramatic ending mirrored the earlier meeting between the two sides, when Sterling scored a 96th-minute victor as part of City's run of 18 consecutive victories in the Premier League.

Salah who broke the Premier League record with his 32nd goal this season for Liverpool Sunday in the 4-0 win over Brighton, has one more game left with his club this season, in the UEFA Champions League Final May 26. It has also been confirmed Arsene Wenger's 22-year reign at Arsenal will end in the summer, meaning at least half of this season's 20 clubs will have new bosses at the beginning of next term.

Carlos Carvalhal's side needed a win, a Southampton loss and a 10-goal swing in order to preserve their place among the elite, having netted only twice in their last eight top-flight games.

City's total of 32 wins is also a new top-flight record.

Manchester City rewrote the Premier League record books as they won the title in style.

Manchester United finished 18 points ahead of Arsenal in 1999-2000 but the record for the largest margin of victory also now belongs to City.

Fittingly, it was Salah who guided Liverpool back into the Champions League and he ended a sun-kissed afternoon at Anfield by lifting the Golden Boot for being the Premier League's top scorer this season.

They needed only a point to head off Chelsea and seal the fourth remaining spot in Europe's premier club competition next season.

A sensational run to the Champions League final, including a 5-1 quarter-final humiliation of City, has proven Liverpool's ability to beating anyone on their day under Jurgen Klopp.

The theme of strong Saints defending continued in the second-half, and City would go the close through winger Sterling; his fierce strike cannoning off the post following their first real opening of the match. Chelsea, Arsenal and Burnley will go to the Europa League.

The substitute latched onto Kevin De Bruyne's pass and chipped Alex McCarthy to break the deadlock and ensure City made history as the first team from England's top flight to reach triple figures. Four Italians, two Scots, a Frenchman, a Portuguese and a Chilean have also won the Premier League.

Andy King's goal gave Swansea hope of an unlikely final-day comeback, but Badou Ndiaye and Peter Crouch scored to ensure already relegated Stoke would not end the season bottom.
