City hit 100 premier league points, after last minute grasp from Jesus

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes has signed a two-year contract extension, tying him to the Premier League champions until 2025.

In a game that seemed overshadowed, Arsenal bid farewell to Arsene Wenger as manager. He went out with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield.

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

Swansea dominated the closing stages but England goalkeeper Butland, probably playing his last game for Stoke, was huge.

Swansea had needed to win and Southampton to lose to Man City, with a 10-goal swing in goal difference.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes it will be quite some time before any team beats the 100 points his side reached in the final minute of their triumphant Premier League season.

Their victory on the road at St Mary's also means they have recorded more away wins (16) and collected more away points (50) than any other team, with Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side in 2004-05 the previous record holder.

Manchester United are guaranteed second while Tottenham have guaranteed a top-four finish.

Chelsea didn't look that good, which is rather alarming since they were going for a Champions League place today and has to go against Manchester United in the FA Cup Final next Saturday.

Mohamed Salah scored two goals and provided two assists in Liverpool's victory over Roma on Tuesday night.

Liverpool ended up in fourth place for the second straight season. Ayoze Perez scored twice and Jonjo Shelvey also scored to clinch a Top Ten finish for the Magpies, who were in a relegation battle deep into the season.

But that did not prevent Swansea supporters from urging Jenkins to "get out of our club" from the first minute.

"Our rhythm was not so high but during the game we were focused and at the end the excellent pass from Kevin and fantastic finish from Gabriel made the difference to achieve that. I think it's a record that will stay long".

City left it to virtually the last kick of its last match to reach the magical 100-point barrier.

It took the Citizens until deep into stoppage time to net a victor through Gabriel Jesus.

Carlos Carvalhal - nearly certainly in charge of Swansea for the final time - said a football miracle was needed, but there seemed a chance when King slotted home after 14 minutes and the Stoke defence seemed likely to concede at every opportunity.
