Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has described his side reaching the 100-point mark in the Premier League this season as a "magnificent" accomplishment.

Gabriel Jesus' stunning last-gasp victor gave Manchester City a narrow victory over Southampton, taking Pep Guardiola's side to 100 points for the season - a feat never previously achieved in the Premier League.

Fresh from leading Manchester City to a record-breaking title win, Pep Guardiola will drop in on a special MNF on Tuesday.

Skipper Ravichandran Ashwin and Andrew Tye did their best to push the score beyond 200, and maintain a healthy net run-rate. Every batsman who took charge played breezy cameos, which never allowed the momentum to shift to the opponents' camp.


"What can I say, 100 points! In the last few weeks these numbers have helped us keep focus".

Southampton needed a point to make sure of safety but Swansea's 2-1 home defeat by Stoke means Saints will play in the top flight for a seventh successive season.

In the updated forecasts, the United Kingdom central bank sees growth at 1.4 percent this year, down from 1.8 percent in February. The reason is that the bank anticipates that the effect from the past sterling weakness is fading faster than previously thought.


As well as hitting three figures for points, City also hit three figures for goals several games ago - though their win over Southampton confirms a best-ever goal difference. Tottenham's 1962-63 Division One winners scored 111 times. 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. Chelsea's 95 in 2004-05 was the previous best in the 38-match per season Premier League era but Gabriel Jesus's winning goal sent Guardiola scampering down the touchline in delight as his dazzling entertainers reached another landmark.

19 - The gap between first and second in the final standings has never been bigger than the 19-point gap between City and United.
