Weekend Review: Premier League records tumble as layers triumph on Eurovision weekend

"They've said to the rest of the Premier League "catch us if you can - good luck".

While City have had a record-breaking campaign, no team have beaten them more often than Juergen Klopp's Reds.

Going back a little further, Manchester United's champions of 2013 won the league with 89 points, and collapsed to 64 under David Moyes a year later.

"This summer we'll watch the World Cup on the sofa - we'll have some good drinks and enjoy what we have done".

Guardiola's side swept aside nearly all the teams stacked before them during this season's record-breaking title-winning campaign, but the Reds have beaten them in recent meetings.

Another Chelsea record to fall was the 103 goals amassed by Carlo Ancelotti's 2009/2010 title winners as City's free-scoring season took them to 106 at an average of almost 2.8 a game.

The champions ran their rivals out of town and rode away with the league this year, becoming the first team in Premier League history to reach 100 points. Dropping just 14 points in a 38 game season will surely never be replicated.

Substitute Gabriel Jesus's 93rd-minute lob - virtually the last kick of the season at St Mary's - ensured City became the first English top-flight team to amass 100 points.

Jesus' late salvo came exactly six years on from Sergio Aguero's unforgettable injury-time victor against QPR to snatch the title in 2012. The numbers are always consequences of what we have done in terms of the way we play, our mentality.

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. They're probably embarrassed by the season they've had because it's a quality squad.

"It means the club is happy with my work, they trust me, and I hope to meet their expectations on the pitch and bring a lot of joy to the fans. You are a top human being and I will be indebted to you forever, so thank you very much".

And Conte, who questioned the desire of his players, claims Chelsea have no chance of an FA Cup final victory over Manchester United unless they improve quickly.

The 68-year-old Frenchman was in a pensive mood after his 1,235th and final game in charge.

Star man: Wayne Rooney led the way in the goals column (10, all of which we scored before Christmas), but just about every statistical metric available pegged him as one of Everton's worst-rated players this season.
