Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola revels in 'magnificent' 100-point season

City finished 19 points clear of second placed Manchester United - the biggest title-winning margin in the Premier League era - to emphasis the gap between the runaway champions and the chasing pack.

The unlikely 10-goal swing required to put Saints in danger of relegation never looked to be on the cards and Mark Hughes' well-manned defence coped assuredly with mounting City pressure after the break.

Arsene Wenger took charge of Arsenal for the last time as they beat Huddersfield 1-0.

Badou Ndiaye lobbed in the leveller and Peter Crouch scored what proved to be the victor before the break, converting the 1000th Premier League goal of the season, while Xherdan Shaqiri missed a penalty in a drab second half.

That goal led to more records being broken and remade on top of the many already set this season.

Yet Chelsea's Antonio Conte, who is widely expected to leave after next week's FA Cup final, saw his side beaten 3-0 at Newcastle United. The lack of goals doomed the Baggies, who left it too late to give the manager's job to Darren Moore.

"During the game we were focused and at the end an excellent pass from Kevin and incredible finish from Gabriel made the difference and achieved that record". We have done that all season.

Liverpool would pull away and win 4-0, sealing their top four spot and clinching a Champions League berth.

That goal lightened the mood but two goals from Ndiaye and Crouch ensured Stoke won the day 2-1 to drag the Swans along to Championship.

Gabriel Jesus, on as a substitute, found space to lift the ball over goalkeeper Alex McCarthy in the fourth minute of additional time, prompting wild celebrations among City's players.

"To enjoy it we had to win it - winning football games is what makes me happy and the boys did it", Wenger said.

Pep Guardiola reacted to the team's 106th league goal of the season by leaping out of his seat in the dugout and punching the air.

Manchester United's Michael Carrick was another signing off at Old Trafford where the home side beat Watford 1-0 to consolidate their hold on second place.

West Ham ended a turbulent season by beating Everton 3-1, with Manuel Lanzini on the scoresheet.
