17 May 2018

The Match of the Day pundit feels that Man City should not be considered a great team based on this season alone and pinpointed their lack of European success as a factor.

Swansea joined relegated clubs Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion, who were also beaten 2-0 by 11th-placed Crystal Palace on Sunday. "Wins at home, wins away - everything was flawless this season and we finished the way we deserved to finish". Another two of Chelsea's records perished as Pep Guardiola's men finished at 100 points and 106 goals.

Guardiola's formidable City side set new records for points gained, goals scored and games won in a Premier League campaign by beating Brighton 3-1 on Wednesday evening.

The key to a good year is usually putting on good displays in front of your home crowd, but which teams were able to turn their stadiums into a fortress, and which side need to give their supporters something to cheer about next season.

The foundation for City's title win was an 18-game winning run between August and January.

Manchester City have broken the record for most passes in a Premier League game three times this season. Is it going too far if one says that they are the greatest team the Premier League has ever seen?

898 - Harry Kane has now gone 898 minutes without scoring a single Premier League goal in the month of August, despite playing 13 games and attempting 44 shots in that time.

City's 100 points make them one of very few clubs to win as many points in Europe's top five leagues, according to UEFA.

Phil Foden is the youngest player to receive a Premier League winner's medal.

Guardiola collected his accolade at the LMA Awards dinner in London on Tuesday night, having 24 hours earlier enjoyed celebrating City's triumph with an open-top bus parade around Manchester.
