Plenty of Manchester City fans were fondly recalling the “wonderful” moment when they put the seal on a historic season two years ago.
In May 2018, Pep Guardiola’s side became the first team in English football history to reach 100 points in a top-flight season and they left it until the dying moments to do so. Deep into stoppage time, Gabriel Jesus struck the winner against Southampton to ensure an unprecedented achievement for City.

The club’s Twitter channel @ManCity shared footage of that momentous goal at St Mary’s Stadium, with the Brazilian striker being set up by an inch-perfect, 50-yard pass from Kevin De Bruyne. Jesus controlled the ball deftly before setting himself to chip stranded Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and spark wild celebrations from Guardiola, his team-mates and the travelling supporters.
It put the seal on a wonderful season in which they romped to the Premier League title and they came very close to repeating the feat the following year, defending their crown with a haul of 98 points after being pushed all the way by Liverpool.
