Man City's Pep Guardiola: '100 points, I still can not believe it'

Relegated Stoke take Swansea down into Championship with them

Swansea City's seven-year stay in the Premier League came to an end on Sunday with a 2-1 loss against already relegated Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium.

Pep Guardiola expects Liverpool to mount a strong Premier League title challenge next year.

And for Swansea to survive relegation, they needed to beat Stoke while Southampton lost to Manchester City and a 10 goal difference was made up.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger signed off after 22 years and 1235 games in charge with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang grabbing the victor.

City also set the record for most successive victories earlier in the season but Guardiola said he is more proud of the way they played than for any particular record.

City's away points haul is 50 after the Saints win, beating that of Chelsea's 48 in 04/05.

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

They needed only a point to head off Chelsea and seal the fourth remaining spot in Europe's premier club competition next season.

Liverpool ace Salah: Am I at Ronaldo, Messi level?
Cristiano Ronaldo was back in action as Real Madrid trained ahead of their clash with Celta Vigo yesterday morning. He was responsible for one of the goals that resulted in his side avoiding defeat at Camp Nou on May 6.

A twinkle-toed Tadic nearly won it for Southampton in the 78th minute - dancing around Bravo but seeing Fernandinho clout his shot off the line.

There was never much chance of that but City's thrilling season was capped by another piece of individual brilliance, with Gabriel Jesus producing a superb lobbed victor in the 94th minute to spark wild celebrations.

City are due to celebrate their title success with an open-top bus parade through the streets of Manchester today.

Swansea took the lead against Stoke but fell to a 2-1 defeat and a place in the Championship next season.

"To enjoy it we had to win it - winning football games is what makes me happy and the boys did it", Wenger said.

Even so, West Brom had their chances, but a season-long problem of finding the net continued to plague a team with just 31 goals to its credit-the second-worst mark in the division.

Manchester United are guaranteed second while Tottenham have guaranteed a top-four finish. Everton, Leicester City, Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, West Ham, Watford, Brighton, Huddersfield Town and Southampton get the satisfaction of staying in the Premier League.
