The Week - Junior - - Sport -

The English Premier League fin­ished on 13 May, with cham­pi­ons Manch­ester City break­ing a lot of foot­ball records dur­ing the sea­son. They beat Southamp­ton 1-0 on the fi­nal day, with a dra­matic goal in in­jury time. The vic­tory means they are the first team in the top divi­sion of English foot­ball to win 100 points in one sea­son.

Manch­ester City also scored a record 106 Premier League goals in their 38 league games since 12 Au­gust. They col­lected the most wins in a sin­gle sea­son at the top level (32), the most wins in a row (18), and the most wins play­ing away from their own sta­dium (16).

City’s Span­ish coach, Pep Guardiola, has now won the league ti­tle while man­ag­ing teams in Eng­land, Ger­many (Bay­ern Munich) and Spain (Barcelona).

The fi­nal game of the sea­son was an emo­tional day for Arse­nal man­ager Arsène Wenger. His 1-0 win over Hud­der­s­field Town was his last ever in charge of the club. French­man Wenger has man­aged Arse­nal for 1,235 games, go­ing back to 1996. The most ex­cit­ing match on the last day of the sea­son was Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur’s 5-4 win against Le­ices­ter City. The new 2018-19 Premier League sea­son will be­gin on 11 Au­gust.

Gabriel Je­sus scored a 94th-minute win­ner.
