Swansea relegated as Salah breaks single-season Premier League scoring record

Huddersfield secured Premier League survival with a 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Wednesday

The goal also saw Salah claim a series of other records. The Egyptian continued to amaze.

Sadio Mane's goal in the semifinal second leg against Roma took his, Salah's and Roberto Firmino's tally to 29 goals, surpassing the previous record of 28 set by Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema in 2013-14.

It's natural that champions should not perform quite as well the following season: reversion to the mean is an iron law of sport. Me and my players were on the limits, we did the maximum that we could.

Now onto the records.

He became only the fifth player to be directly involved in 40 or more goals, following Andy Cole, Shearer, Thierry Henry and Suarez. To get that was so, so good and it was a great feeling that we were the only team that achieved 100 points in the Premier League, so of course it was special.

Salah may never enjoy a season as successful as the one he has just had, but you wouldn't back against him running it close.

Belgian Kevin de Bruyne, arguably City's star player of the campaign, was taken aback by the enthusiasm of the thousands of flag-waving fans.

Though Pep Guardiola's men were rarely troubled at the back, Argentine ace Otamendi had a lot to do with how easy they made it look. Defeats to Liverpool and Manchester United and draws against Everton, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Huddersfield Town are the only blots on their record.

Chelsea's record of 95 from the 2004/05 fell as City beat Brighton in midweek and Gabriel Jesus's stoppage time victor at Southampton took City into three figures for points.

Salah scored his 32nd goal of the league campaign in the 26th minute as he turned sharply inside the box and fired into the bottom corner after receiving a pass from striker Dominic Solanke.

Salah's heroics were the only thing that stopped Harry Kane from winning a third successive Premier League Golden Boot.

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.
