Jesus latched onto Kevin De Bruyne's long ball in the 94th minute to lob the keeper, prompting incredible scenes in the away end as City became the first team ever to reach 100 points in an English top-flight campaign, even going back beyond the Premier League era.

18 - Beginning with a 2-1 win at Bournemouth on August 26 and concluded by 1-0 triumph at Newcastle on December 27, City set a Premier League best of 18 consecutive victories.

City, though, made it a record-breaking 16 victories on the road with their dramatic success on Sunday. "When you get 100 points, it's something special".

However, Gabriel Jesus' late victor at Southampton took City to 32 victories, which means that they now also have the overall record for an English top-flight season - previously held by Tottenham Hotspur, who recorded 31 wins in the old First Division in 1960-61. "In the last few weeks these numbers have helped us keep focus".

The Spaniard will assess what's changed at the Etihad since his first season in English football finished with City ending fourth in the division - before running away with it at the second time of asking.

The Manchester side have been beaten just twice in the league this term, going down at Liverpool in January before suffering a home defeat to United.

5 - City won the Premier League with five games to spare, equalling the top-flight record also achieved by Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

In addition, their goal difference of plus 79 is the biggest in Premier League history.
