As well as winning the most points by an English top-flight side in a single campaign, City's 32nd win broke Tottenham's 57-year-old record for victories in a single top-flight season, BBC reports.

If rock-solid home form is a prerequisite, then City certainly summoned something close to perfection this season.

"Now the Premier League is not a British league or a European league, it is a world league".

The 2016 champions Leicester collapsed from 81 points to 44 the following season, a 37-point drop that sounds like it should have been the worst title defence of all time, yet in fact was scarcely even the worst title defence in 12 months.

Discussing a playing style that has given him plenty of headaches down the years, Guardiola acknowledged Klopp's more direct approach when compared to his own - servicing the forward talents of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and PFA and FWA Player of the Year Mohamed Salah - can be particularly potent.

Guardiola also has a history of building dynasties as his Barcelona and Bayern Munich sides won three consecutive league titles before arriving in Manchester. "It's massive. One hundred points is magnificent", Gaurdiola told BBC Sport. "What we have done this season, for all the staff, Mikel, his contribution, was outstanding, amazing. We are going to try". Where they have really excelled and where the colossal points gap to second place has been constructed is away from home, however. Although he took a while to turn things round, Southampton produced a strong end to the season with two wins and a draw from their final four games.

Extending that form out over the course of 38 games is now the challenge for the German to deliver a first league title since 1990.

Here, we have a look at some of their most astonishing numbers.

Naby Keita's arrival from RB Leipzig for £52.75m will add extra dynamism and depth to a midfield decimated by injuries in the latter part of this season. Chelsea won the league last year with 93 points, but could only manage 70 this year.

1 - Guardiola is the first Spanish manager to win the Premier League.

When the next extraordinary team has a near-flawless season, City will still be the first to have hit triple figures in the points column. Both had top-ten finishes and gave us a team from Wales in the EPL and the great saying about Stoke. Defending stoutly, they hardly bothered attacking at all for long periods, being content to let City have supposedly harmless possession either side of the halfway line.
