It was just a month back that the race for the top four positions seemed like a foregone conclusion It was just a month back that the race for the top four positions seemed like a foregone conclusion

Chelsea's record of 30 wins set last season only lasted a year as City racked up 32.

By this time, St Mary's was rocking with news of Stoke holding on to a slender lead over relegation rivals Swansea City, but a cruel late twist was to come. Guardiola's wild celebration with his backroom staff showed what it meant to the Spaniard for City to achieve yet another astonishing feat. Guardiola said. "When you win for 100 points it's something special for the club".

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.

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. "It was an incredible finish from Gabriel".

The top assists chart this season clearly reveals City's dominance this season that saw that record an outstanding centurions of Premier League points.

Manchester City trailed for a total of just 153 minutes in Premier League matches this season - the fewest by a side in a single campaign.

"We had to play for something".

"My favourite is the way we played".

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

City will celebrate on the streets of Manchester on Monday with an open-top bus parade. But they had no intention of letting the impending party distract them on the south-coast.

The champions' first meaningful chance of the game came in the 61st minute when Raheem Sterling thumped the ball against the post after it fell to him kindly from a deflected Kevin De Bruyne cross.

A year later, Jordan moved to Aston Villa, whose awful campaign ended with relegation as they finished last on the table with only 17 points.
