Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola praised his “magnificent” players as champions  ended an incredible season with a record 100 points after victory at Southampton, who secured Premier League survival despite losing.Substitute Gabriel Jesus struck with virtually the last kick of the game to spark wild celebrations on City’s bench at St Mary’s. “Maybe this record will be broken but it will be difficult,” said Guardiola after his side finished 19 points ahead of nearest rivals Manchester United. “What can I say, 100 points! We won 50 points at home and 50 away. It’s massive. One hundred points is magnificent.”As well as winning the most points by an English top-flight side in a single campaign, City’s 32nd win broke Tottenham’s 57-year record for victories in a single top-flight season.“It was such a complicated game. It was so hard. The players suffered. Southampton are a physical team, so many people defending deep,” added Guardiola. Southampton needed a point to ensure safety but Swansea’s 2-1 home defeat by Stoke means Saints will play in the top flight for a seventh successive season.Photo Credit: Getty
