Pep Guardiola felt Gabriel Jesus' stoppage-time victor at Southampton was a "perfect" end to a remarkable season as champions Manchester City became the first club to amass 100 Premier League points. "I've enjoyed my time here at the end of a hard season".

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.

Gabriel Jesus netted in the 90th minute to secure the important win for the league champions.

"One-hundred points, I still can not believe it", he said in his postmatch news conference.

In a game between two sides managed by a former boss of the other team, David Moyes' West Ham came out on top against Sam Allardyce's Everton, with Manuel Lanzini scoring twice in a 3-1 win.

In the middle of the park, Fernandinho will assume duties as the defensive anchor to shield the back four.

The Premier League's 2017-18 season comes to a close on Sunday as all 20 teams play at the same time.

Behind him, Leroy Sane recorded 15, while David Silva and Raheem Sterling were next best with 11 each. Expect the front three to cause all sorts of problems to the Saints' defence.




Jesus latched onto Kevin De Bruyne's long ball in the 94th minute to lob the keeper, prompting incredible scenes in the away end as City became the first team ever to reach 100 points in an English top-flight campaign, even going back beyond the Premier League era.

A victory for the Citizens would also see them create a new record for most away wins (16) and points (50) in a Premier League season. The lack of goals doomed the Baggies, who left it too late to give the manager's job to Darren Moore.

Guardiola introduced youngsters Brahim Diaz and Phil Foden late on, ensuring both players have registered five appearances to earn a Premier League medal - with Foden becoming the youngest ever victor at 17 years and 350 days old.

Not just class but class apart.

In addition, their goal difference of plus 79 is the biggest in Premier League history.

West Brom's stay in the Premier League ended with a 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, for whom Wilfried Zaha and Patrick van Aanholt scored.
