Ederson signs new seven-year deal with Premier League champions

Manchester City soon clicked into gear though and Southampton were forced back into their strong 5-4-1 structure.

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.

Manager Guardiola said now was not the time for looking ahead to see if they could improve on their league performance next term.

City also won the Premier League in 2011-12 and 2013-14, and Shearer believes that to "be a great team" City must win again next season.

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

"In these last weeks, these numbers have helped us be focused, to play for something", said Guardiola, who side's title success was confirmed nearly a month before the end of the season.

By this time, St Mary's was rocking with news of Stoke holding on to a slender lead over relegation rivals Swansea City, but a cruel late twist was to come.

Pep Guardiola has lost to Jurgen Klopp more than any other manager with eight defeats, having faced the German during stints with both Manchester City and Bayern Munich respectively. All respect to Swansea, but it is nearly impossible.

Guardiola introduced youngsters Brahim Diaz and Phil Foden late on, ensuring both players have registered five appearances to earn a Premier League medal - with Foden becoming the youngest ever victor at 17 years and 350 days old.

Southampton can now relax and hopefully look forward to a much stronger campaign in August after what will be an interesting summer of in-comings and out-goings.

He said: "Criticising Manchester United has been all too easy this season".

"Some days I will be here because the kids are in school, some days I'll be in Manchester with (director of football) Txiki (Begiristain) or (chief executive) Ferran (Soriano)".

"I should give myself a shake really - I'm a little bit flat because I thought we should have won the game against the champions", Hughes told reporters. I will speak with them.
