Manchester City have their eyes on another century as they aim to wrap up their outstanding season with a flourish.

City's 100-point haul comes after they set a new Premier League points record by beating Brighton in midweek, taking them past the total set by Chelsea in 2004-05.

Jesus' late salvo came exactly six years on from Sergio Aguero's unforgettable injury-time victor against QPR to snatch the title in 2012. "People say you won because you invest a lot, they are right".

"The record will be broken but it will be hard".

City's 105 goals and 31 wins are also Premier League records that could be increased further this weekend.

100 - Despite winning six previous league titles across spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, Guardiola has reached 100 points in a season for the first time in his career - surpassing 99 with Barca in 2009-10.

Elsewhere, Swansea's expected relegation was confirmed - as they lost at home to Stoke.

Manchester United great Gary Neville acknowledges Guardiola - named the League Managers Association (LMA) Manager of the Year on Tuesday - has the upper hand in his long-standing rivalry with Jose Mourinho on the other side of town. "Southampton obviously deserve to be in the Premier League".

"Now is the time to enjoy what we've done this season", he said.

"We had to play for something". Everybody goes, except two or three, to the World Cup and we wish them all the best, that they enjoy that unbelievable tournament.

Ederson is expected to be in Brazil's squad for the World Cup starting next month. First Sterling saw his deflected shot come back off the post, before McCarthy did well to back pedal and tip a John Stones header over the bar from the resulting corner.

Speaking after his title victory, Guardiola told reporters: "I'm pretty sure this season they were a big contender and they will be next season".

"Of course we are going to try it, but I don't think if we don't win the Champions League in the next five years it will be a disaster".
