EPL: Guardiola reveals team that will challenge Man City next season

Huddersfield Town players throw manager David Wagner in the air

Gabriel Jesus' stunning last-gasp victor gave Manchester City a narrow victory over Southampton, taking Pep Guardiola's side to 100 points for the season - a feat never previously achieved in the Premier League.

The title race has been all over bar the shouting for some time now.

Hughes' side had all but confirmed their Premier League status for next season ahead of the match following their midweek victory at Swansea, but came agonisingly close to rounding their campaign off with an impressive draw against the champions only for Brazil global Jesus to score with virtually the last kick of the game.

Pep Guardiola on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event from 10.15pm on Tuesday.

They began the second period camped in the hosts' half, albeit continuing to lack a goal threat, epitomised by captain Fernandinho somehow volleying against the scoreboard on the top of the stand from 12 yards out.

Other results included a 1-0 win for Arsenal at Huddersfield in Arsene Wenger's last game, and a 1-0 home win for Manchester United against Watford. "When you score a lot of goals and concede few, 100 points, all the records we have broken, it was a effect of the way we've played".

Premier League champions Manchester City rewarded Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson for his role in a record 100-point campaign by extending his contract to 2025 on Sunday. "I think the next three or four days he will still need and then he will be fine again".

City's 18-game winning run from August to December was the longest ever in the English top flight, pre-dating even the Premier League era.

Naby Keita's arrival from RB Leipzig for £52.75m will add extra dynamism and depth to a midfield decimated by injuries in the latter part of this season.

"I see a bright future for my successor because the team has a good attitude and quality." said the Frenchman.

"Numbers are numbers, they are the effect of the way we played".
