Gary Neville gets Manchester City shirt from Pep Guardiola

Metropolis grew to become the primary aspect in Premier League historical past to interrupt the 100-point barrier with their 1-Zero win over Southampton on the ultimate day of the marketing campaign.

City won the league by putting 100 points on the board this season, finishing 19 points ahead of rivals Manchester United.

The Reds bounced back the season after, again ending on 89 points but were well clear of the chasing pack.

Burnley's Sean Dyche was also in the running having guided the club to the Europa League while David Wagner and Chris Hughton's names were also being bandied about having kept both Huddersfield Town and Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League.

Not for the first time this season Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock lost out to Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santos who won the Championship's accolade.

Adding midfield reinforcements is also believed to be a key concern for Guardiola and Napoli's Jorginho, who has also been on Manchester United's radar, is their top target for the summer.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager discuss various topics but one that stood out on the evening is when former defender himself probed Guardiola about the way he gets his players to play effectively.

'We are close, we are so close!,' Guardiola can be seen barking at his men as the season reaches it's climax. "We are going to try".

It was an ideal way for Liverpool to head into the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 26: Plenty of goals and no injuries. It's four competitions, we need new faces to compete with the guys from this season.

Newcastle finished runners-up on 68 points in 96/97 - that would have secured them just a sixth place finish this year.

Marcus Rashford scored his first goal since March for United's victor, whilst Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane both struck twice at Wembley as Tottenham came from 3-1 down to beat Leicester 5-4 and hold off Liverpool to finish third.
