A late winner at Southampton saw Pep Guardiola's side make even more history as the first team to rack up 100 points in a top-flight campaign

Manchester City wrapped up the Premier League title on April 15, with a record-equalling five games to spare, but they made further history by rounding off their season with a 1-0 win at Southampton that saw them become the first top-flight side ever to reach 100 points.

Below, Goal takes a look at all of the records that Pep Guardiola's men have broken during a truly remarkable campaign...


Wins

Before this season, the record number of wins for a single Premier League campaign was 30 – a mark set by Antonio Conte's Chelsea a year ago.

However, Gabriel Jesus' late winner at Southampton took City to 32 victories, which means that they now also have the overall record for an English top-flight season – previously held by Tottenham Hotspur, who recorded 31 wins in the old First Division in 1960-61.


Away Wins

Chelsea's 2004-05 side loved travelling, winning 15 times away from home.

City, though, made it a record-breaking 16 victories on the road with their dramatic success on Sunday.


Points

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea racked up 95 points in winning the 2004-05 Premier League title but that historic haul has now been bettered by City, who reached 97 points with their win over Brighton in midweek before then becoming centurions at Southampton.

As already mentioned, no other team had ever reached the 100-point mark across a single campaign in England's top flight.


Away Points

Gabriel Jesus' late strike at Southampton then made it a whopping 106 goals in total for Pep's troops.

In addition, their goal difference of plus 79 is the biggest in Premier League history.
