Swansea relegated as Salah breaks single-season Premier League scoring record

Liverpool could still drop to fifth on Sunday

Record-breaking champions Manchester City became the first ever Premier League team to reach 100 points, while relegation was confirmed for Swansea City, along with Stoke and West Brom.

Gabriel Jesus' goal deep into stoppage time at Southampton gave Manchester City a 1-0 final-day win and brought up another landmark in the Premier League champions' incredible season.

Perhaps the club most attuned to the riddle that the Premiership title defence is, has been Chelsea, who held the record for most points (95 points in 2004-05) and most wins (30 wins in 2016-17) before Manchester City shattered the records. Me and my players were on the limits, we did the maximum that we could.

"I think (Virgil) van Dijk has helped them a lot to be more consistent in the defensive department, especially in the box, and (there is) the quality up front and the quality in the way they play".

Moving away from City, Ederson's next challenge is to convince Brazil boss Tite that he's done enough to dislodge Alisson Becker from his starting spot at next month's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Yet while Southampton secured another Premier League season after finishing 17th, one place above the drop zone on 36 points, Hughes could not hide his last-day frustration.

Manchester City players celebrate a goal.

Having spent 22 illustrious years at the club, Wenger lost the trust of his loyal fanbase as increased pressure on the owners eventually told, with the announcement that Wenger would be vacating the Emirates hot seat at the end of the season. The first qualifying round, which will involve Celtic, also overlaps with the World Cup, though the play-off proper is not until the end of August.

Ederson is a wonderful goalkeeper, John Stones seems to be rising to the level expected at the Etihad and of course moving forward City are a potent threat. "I wish you the best of luck". "They had a different attitude, motivation, and desire than we had".

The 32-year-old announced in January his son had been born "extremely preterm". In 2015 Chelsea had won the league under Jose Mourinho with 87 points, only to slump to 50 points the following season.

It's been a whirlwind 12 months for the Egyptian, who now finds himself being branded as one of the best players in the world after scoring 43 times in his debut season.

Kevin De Bruyne has every right to feel aggrieved, but it is simply impossible to overlook the astonishing displays of Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.
