Man City record will be tough to break-Guardiola

"All of the competitions, but for me the Champions League is without a doubt a very special competition for us, and it is my dream to win it in Manchester City's shirt".

Swansea and Stoke, two sides who conceded 124 goals between them this season, could only wish for such solidity at the back.

Liverpool have clinched the English Premier League's final Champions League spot, Swansea's relegation was confirmed and champions Manchester City finished with 100 points on a goal-packed final day of the football season.

At Anfield, they were also scouring through the record books after Salah opened the scoring against Brighton and Hove Albion with his 32nd goal of the season.

Just last season Chelsea set a record mark by winning 30 of their 38 Premier League games.

Swansea dominated the closing stages but England goalkeeper Butland, probably playing his last game for Stoke, was enormous.

Their victory on the road at St Mary's also means they have recorded more away wins (16) and collected more away points (50) than any other team, with Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side in 2004-05 the previous record holder.

They will be joined in next year's Champions League by Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

Despite having a typically large share of the possession in the first half, City struggled to break down Southampton's organised defence and rarely troubled Alex McCarthy in goal.

The Swans needed a miracle (a win, a Southampton loss, and a 10 goal swing in goal difference), but they could not beat already relegated Stoke City at home, losing 2-1.

And defender Angel Rangel, who is to depart, called on the Swansea board to ensure the club return swiftly to the top flight.

Hughes' current deal expires at the end of the campaign, and he insisted it would be wrong to discuss new terms with Southampton until after Sunday's season-closing clash with Manchester City.

"It's 100 points... still I can not believe it", the Catalan told a post-match news conference.

Key Opta stats: - Stoke secured their first league double over the Swans since 1992-93, when they were in the third tier.

A plane flew over the stadium, carrying the message "Merci Arsene, we will miss you too" in response to Wenger's goodbye speech last week at the Emirates Stadium. "I think it's a record that will stay long".

It took the Citizens until deep into stoppage time to net a victor through Gabriel Jesus.
