Pep Hails City Centurions

Pep Guardiola believes Manchester City’s record Premier League points tally might never be broken.

City rounded off their championship-winning season with a 1-0 win at Southampton, secured courtesy of Gabriel Jesus’ late goal.

It meant the club reached a remarkable 100 points from a possible 112 available in a 38-game Premier League season, finishing 19 points clear of nearest challengers Manchester United – a Premier League record margin.

The City boss reflected: “What can I say, 100 points! We won 50 points at home and 50 away. It’s massive. One hundred points is magnificent. Maybe this record will be broken but it will be difficult.”

Guardiola’s side – who also won the League Cup in 2017/18 – spent 240 days at the top of the Premier League, the only other clubs to sit at the top of the table in the season? United (34 days), Arsenal (1)… and Huddersfield Town (1).

Other records broken this term included most wins (32), most away wins (16) and most consecutive victories (18), achieved from August to December last year.
