Swansea joins Stoke in being relegated from Premier League

  • KEY PLAYER... Thomasau Forbes is back in the Welwitschias team to face the Pumas tomorrow

On the sixth anniversary of the Premier League's most famous goal, Sergio Aguero's title-winning strike against QPR, Gabriel Jesus etched his name into City folklore with a goal in the 94th minute to give Pep Guardiola's Shark Team an unprecedented 100 points to finish the season.

Andy King gave Swansea an early lead, but Badou Ndiaye and Peter Crouch scored before halftime to give Stoke only its second victory since Paul Lambert took charge in January.

There was never much chance of that but City's thrilling season was capped by another piece of individual brilliance, with Gabriel Jesus producing a superb lobbed victor in the 94th minute to spark wild celebrations.

The final-day "miracle" that Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal required didn't happen, with the Welsh club losing 2-1 to Stoke to end its seven-year stay in the league and ensure Southampton stayed up. "One-hundred points is a lot, 50 points at home, 50 points away, it means how stable, how good we were all this season".

The season also included an unprecedented 18-game unbeaten run in the Premier League for City.

They will be joined in next year's Champions League by Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.




Harry Kane became the second Premier League player to score 30 goals this season, as Spurs trailed 1-0 and 3-1.

Both sets of fans applauded Wenger in the 22nd minute of the game and two planes flew overhead dragging messages of support for the Frenchman.

"And our rhythm was not so high because of course the last week we trained not too much".

Manuel Lanzini scored twice as West Ham beat Everton 3-1, while Crystal Palace beat bottom side West Brom 2-0 and Bournemouth won 2-1 at seventh-placed Burnley in the day's other matches. "I am addicted and I don't think that can be cured", Wenger said.

"One-hundred points, I still can not believe it", he said in his postmatch news conference.

"The way we play, especially without the ball". Jesus removed his shirt and twirled it in celebration in front of City's supporters.
