City became the first team to reach a century of points in English top-flight history when they beat Southampton thanks to Gabriel Jesus' 94th-minute goal. The 19-point gap to second-place Manchester United sees City beat the record, set by the Old Trafford side in 1999-00, for the biggest lead at the end of a campaign, while they have collected the most wins (32) and scored the most goals (106) in one season.

Swansea's survival hopes had rested on the longest of long shots, victory coupled by a Southampton defeat to Manchester City and a 10-goal swing in the process.

However, Badou Ndiaye quickly levelled before Peter Crouch gave already relegated Stoke a first win since January to leapfrog West Brom into 19th.

Gabriel Jesus' dramatic victor at Southampton took City's Centurions to the 100-point mark - check out the stunning list of records the Blues have set this season. These are the headlines as the Final Match Day gets underway in English Premier League.

Arsene Wenger's final game of his 22-season Arsenal career was a victorious one as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's first-half goal gave them a win at Huddersfield.

Harry Kane did his best to chase Salah all the way at the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts, netting twice in Spurs' awesome win over Leicester, a game they twice trailed in.

Mohamed Salah broke the Premier League scoring record for a 38-game season as Liverpool qualified for the Champions League on a busy final day of the season.

The season also included an unprecedented 18-game unbeaten run in the Premier League for City.

"And our rhythm was not so high because of course the last week we trained not too much".

Arsenal finished sixth in the Premier League - the lowest under Wenger, who will stay working. "It's incredible, I don't have words, 100 points!"

Guardiola celebrated the goal emphatically with his bench, as did the players with the substitutes running down the touchline to join in, just in front of the fans.

City will celebrate on the streets of Manchester on Monday with an open-top bus parade.
