Guardiola delighted as City reach 100 points

The new category of the award is created to reward the brilliant performances of the EPL creative players with the highest assist in a league season.

Swansea needed a 10-goal swing - beating Stoke and seeing Southampton hammered by Manchester City - to stay up. I need time to think, talk with my family and friends, we will talk again and then take a decision. United was already assured of second place before its 1-0 win over Watford, in Michael Carrick's final game for the club. "All of the competitions, but for me the Champions League is without a doubt a very special competition for us, and it is my dream to win it in Manchester City's shirt".

Victory over Southampton, thanks to Gabriel Jesus' injury-time strike, saw City become the first team ever to reach 100 points in a Premier League season.

Chelsea's record of 95 from the 2004/05 fell as City beat Brighton in midweek and Gabriel Jesus's stoppage-time victor at Southampton took City into three figures for points.

The final-day "miracle" that Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal required didn't happen, with the Welsh club losing 2-1 to Stoke to end its seven-year stay in the league and ensure Southampton stayed up.

Chelsea ended the season without even a whimper, and in the Europa League. "But the second half was much better".

Despite finishing 37 points adrift of City in sixth, Wenger is bullish about the squad he has left behind's chances of challenging next season.

However, Pep Guardiola has insisted he will only tinker this summer, having overhauled an ageing squad in his first two seasons in charge.

City are due to celebrate their title success with an open-top bus parade through the streets of Manchester today.
