EPL champions Manchester City ended the season with 100 points following a 1-0 away victory over Southampton, while runners-up Manchester United defeated 14th-placed Watford 1-0.

City's 100-point haul comes after they set a new Premier League points record by beating Brighton in midweek, taking them past the total set by Chelsea in 2004-05.

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.

"I need to give myself a shake because I'm a little bit flat because I felt we should have won this game against the champions", said Hughes, after City had beaten Saints with an injury-time goal for the second time this season. 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. "We knew it was impossible to stay up".

Worryingly for the competition, though, City now have a young squad capable of dominating for years to come.

"One hundred points is a lot - 50 points at home, 50 points away".

Liverpool are set to play the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 26 in Kiev.

The Blues won it at a frightening level, breaking numerous Premier League records while positioning themselves into discussions about being the greatest Premier League team of all time, alongside the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson's Red Devils of 1999 and Arsene Wenger's Invincibles team of 2004.

"This season, they were a big contender and they will be again next season".

Warding off interest that is sure to come for Mohamed Salah after a remarkable 44-goal season is paramount if Liverpool are to challenge for the title next season. "The team needs some additions and, if they get them, I think they will compete for the Premier League title".
