Southampton v Manchester City – story of the match

May 16 01:16 2018

The Ivory Coast worldwide has left City after a glittering and trophy-laden eight years at the Etihad, and has admitted he’d like to stay in the English Premier League for another season or two.

Gabriel Jesus’ victor on Sunday was City’s 106 goal of the campaign, meaning they have scored an astonishing 2.79 goals per game.

The ‘keeper played a crucial role in helping City to the title, one they won with a record points total of 100 after Gabriel Jesus’ late victor against Southampton on Sunday. Manchester United finished 19 points behind City.

The 25-year-old Egypt worldwide scored his 32nd league goal of the season as Liverpool wound up their campaign with a 4-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday. So if he stays, I will be happiest guy in the world.

£1.9billion – money spent by Premier League clubs on transfer fees this season, an all-time record.

Victory for Liverpool meant it didn’t matter what fifth-placed Chelsea did at Newcastle, but they failed to put any sort of pressure on the Champions League finalists by succumbing limply to a 3-0 defeat at St. James’s Park.

An estimated 100,000 supporters lined the streets of Manchester as City celebrated an outstanding campaign in which they broke a host of records.

Former striker Hughes, who played for Southampton from 1998 to 2000, lost his opening three league games but took eight points from the next four to all but secure safety going into Sunday’s season finale. They would go on to win six of their next nine games (two draws, one loss).

It also surpassed Guardiola’s previous season best of 99 points with Barcelona in 2009-10, while City set Premier League bests in terms of wins (32), away wins (16), goal difference (+79) and goals (106) and the most matches won in succession (18).

Guardiola has invested heavily this season, big money acquisitions such as Aymeric Laporte, Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker, Bernardo Silva and Ederson have brought significant depth to the squad. “It shows how stable and how good we were all the season”. “That will not be important”.
