A look at the greatest Premier League teams of all time

A look at the greatest Premier League teams of all time

EPL champions Manchester City ended the season with 100 points following a 1-0 away victory over Southampton, while runners-up Manchester United defeated 14th-placed Watford 1-0.

Egypt winger Mohamed Salah scored a historic opening goal for Liverpool, and now holds the EPL record of 32 goals in a 38-match season, breaking the previous record of 31 goals held by Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alan Shearer.

Although the opponents were a Mark Hughes team once again, the nature of this triumph could not be more far removed - even if late winners earlier in the season from Raheem Sterling against Bournemouth, Southampton and Huddersfield Town became one of the symbols of City's success. "Wins at home, wins away - everything was ideal this season and we finished the way we deserved to finish".

The curtain fell on a peculiar Premier League season on Sunday with the final day of fixtures notable mostly for an unfamiliar absence of tension.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola claimed the double after he was crowned the League Manager's Association (LMA) Manager of the Year and the Premier League Manager of the Season.

The foundation for City's title win was an 18-game winning run between August and January.

Pep Guardiola is the first manager to win the Premier League Manager of the Month award four consecutive times.

Manchester City have accrued more Premier League points this season (100) than eight clubs have in their entire Premier League history - including Oldham (89).

"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!"

City players and staff went on an open-top bus parade through Manchester to show off both their trophies, with an estimated 100,000 supporters lining the streets.
