Proud Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes his team's record-breaking season may never be bettered after the Premier League champions signed off with a last-gasp 1-0 win at Southampton.

A year later, Jordan moved to Aston Villa, whose bad campaign ended with relegation as they finished last on the table with only 17 points.

Stoke City, West Brom and Swansea City have been relegated to the Championship. Manchester City won the league by 19 points and scored 106 goals, both new records, and finished with a plus-79 goal difference.

The Saints can still be relegated from the top flight, but their midweek victory over Swansea has given them a real boost as they chase survival; barring a major defeat against City and a surprise Swansea victory today, Mark Hughes' men will be safe.

Needless to say, unless something insane happened, Liverpool would remain in the top four and Swansea would relegate. "It shows how stable and how good we were all the season".

Encouraged by the early departure of their former player Joe Allen to injury, Swansea actually started well with Jack Butland denying Andre Ayew and Stoke surviving a frantic scramble in their penalty area.

The 24-year-old has made a big impression since his £35million arrival from Benfica, featuring in all but the last two games of their triumphant Premier League campaign.

"Now they (Foden, Diaz) are champions". Then Stoke scored twice in their final Premier League game and that settled the relegation battle.

"It was an emotional day", Swansea defender Angel Rangel said.

"It's been the hardest season". It's been unfortunate, because it's such a great club. "We need to build again".

On a day of farewells, with more than half the managers either departing or with questions about their future and several distinguished players ending their club careers, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger signed off with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield.

Liverpool v Brighton, Tottenham v Leicester.

Chelsea's record of 95 from the 2004/05 fell as City beat Brighton in midweek and Gabriel Jesus's stoppage time victor at Southampton took City into three figures for points.

Manchester City's season looked to be heading for an equally underwhelming end after they failed to register a single first-half shot on target at St Mary's where Southampton knew they would be safe provided City did not run riot.
