Liverpool into Champions League at Chelsea's expense

Liverpool into Champions League at Chelsea's expense

Gabriel Jesus grabbed the only goal deep in injury time to give Manchester City the win at Southampton, who nevertheless stayed up.

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. As a result, City won £39,755,923 in prize-money, to runner-up United's £37,768,127, according to research from by MailOnline.

"When I arrived we had 13 points".

"We broke every record".

Gabriel Jesus' strike right on the stroke of full-time in his side's 1-0 success at Southampton came nearly exactly six years to the minute that Sergio Aguero netted in the 3-2 victory over QPR to win the club's first Sheikh Mansour era title in 2012.

"It's incredible, 50 (points) at home and 50 away", Guardiola, who went one better than when he oversaw Barcelona's 99-point LaLiga-winning 2009-10 season.

At the other end, West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and Swansea were relegated, each of them trying a change of manager but failing to survive as all three promoted sides - Newcastle, Brighton and Huddersfield - avoided the immediate drop back into the Championship.

However, at least 23 people continue to be missing even as the rescue and relief operations are underway. Due to sudden gales and whirl wind pools the boat lost balance and tilted one side and capsized.

Guardiola's side scored an exhilarating 106 goals - which was yet another record - and don't look to be slowing down any time soon what with the constant firepower of Kevin de Bruyne, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling.

Salah has scored 44 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions this season, and will get the chance to add to that tally when Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26.

"This season has been unbelievable and to finish it off yesterday in the last second to get the 100 points is unbelievable".

It would appear that the younger Salah wasn't quite ready back then and didn't gain the trust of ex-mentor Jose Mourinho, but the forward seems in a much better place now under Jurgen Klopp.

As for this season's showpiece, Lovren said: 'We'll be ready. Hence, a befitting win in what was the final game of his 22-year reign at the club was thoroughly deserved.

"They've said to the rest of the Premier League "catch us if you can - good luck". "Probably Manchester United at Old Trafford when we beat them because it was a very important game for us", he said. The goalkeeper time and time again came to the rescue for Jose Mourinho's side, pulling off some miraculous saves that didn't quite seem possible.
