Swansea relegated, Liverpool secure CL on final day

Guardiola introduced youngsters Brahim Diaz and Phil Foden late on, ensuring both players have registered five appearances to earn a Premier League medal - with Foden becoming the youngest ever victor at 17 years and 350 days old. The Saints had a poor season in contrast as they secured Premiership survival on the last day of the season.

City play Southampton at St Mary's on Sunday and Guardiola, whose side were crowned champions on April 15, is targeting a win to reach 100 points.

Gabriel Jesus grabbed the only goal deep in injury time to give Manchester City the win at Southampton, who nevertheless stayed up.

Gabriel Jesus' stoppage time victor - man, does this club play to the final season's whistle - made sure Man City added "first 100-point club" to its list of fantastic accomplishments.

Ederson has concluded a fairytale debut Premier League season with a new contract, extending his stay with Champions Manchester City.

Fortunately for fourth bottom Southampton, the defeat didn't matter in their battle to avoid relegation as third bottom Swansea lost against Stoke, ensuring Mark Hughes' side avoided the drop by three points.

Jurgen Klopp's men have been one of only two teams to beat City in the league, while they also won both legs of their Champions League quarter-final.

Warding off interest that is sure to come for Mohamed Salah after a remarkable 44-goal season is paramount if Liverpool are to challenge for the title next season. It is a day for celebration on the blue side of Manchester - though Guardiola will most likely already be preparing for his side's title defence next season.

Since the highest goal scorer and the keeper with the highest number of clean sheets are given the golden boot and golden glove at the end of each season.

The theme of strong Saints defending continued in the second-half, and City would go the close through winger Sterling; his fierce strike cannoning off the post following their first real opening of the match.

Despite finishing 37 points adrift of City in sixth, Wenger is bullish about the squad he has left behind's chances of challenging next season.

City will celebrate on the streets of Manchester on Monday with an open-top bus parade.
