Spanish defender Rangel led the side in his last game after 11 years at Swansea, while midfielder Britton came on as a 57th-minute substitute in his 537th and final appearance for a club he made his debut for in 2002.

West Brom have finished bottom of the top-flight for a record 10th season and for the second time in the Premier League era (also 2008-09).

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.

A determined and resilient display from Mark Hughes' Southampton side had seen them limit clear cut chances for champions City throughout the afternoon as well as go close to scoring themselves, but it was ultimately Brazilian Jesus' strike with the last kick of the game that stole the three points.

They were runaway leaders for most of the season and won the league in style, blowing teams away with their intense and expansive brand of football.

Another Chelsea record to fall was the 103 goals amassed by Carlo Ancelotti's 2009/2010 title winners as City's free-scoring season took them to 106 at an average of almost 2.8 a game.


Ultimately, a spectacular 94th minute goal by Gabriel Jesus that sealed City's 1-0 win and secured their landmark 100-point season proved irrelevant to the Saints because Swansea's defeat by Stoke City meant they were safe anyway.

But it is at the other end of the field that Wenger's replacement will need to work hardest as Arsenal conceded 51 goals in the league this season.

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea won the EPL golden glove this season, with the Spaniard receiving the award ahead of the match.

Guardiola's men pushed hard in the second half and Raheem Sterling struck the righthand post with a deflected effort before John Stones' header from the resultant corner was tipped over by Alex McCarthy. Let us know what you think in the comments section.

City will celebrate on the streets of Manchester on Monday with an open-top bus parade.
