Ederson signs Manchester City contract extension

The Premier League is the most important thing.

Leroy Sane interrupts Kevin De Bruyne's interview with Sky Sports News during a bus parade to mark their title winning season. While there is no doubting their quality, they have benefitted from a weak field in the Premier League.

Despite United finishing above rivals Liverpool, the Reds are into the Champions League final and have earned plenty of plaudits for their attacking football this season.

With the premature birth of his son in December, it's been a hard season for Silva off the pitch and he has regularly gone back and forth from Manchester to be with his family in Spain.

In his place, though, is another capable goalkeeper who could be going to the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation next month. Jack Butland may have been relegated with Stoke City, but he was one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League this season. "It's massive. One hundred points is magnificent", Guardiola, pictured, said.

The winning margin of a whopping 19 points - over 2nd-placed Man Utd - was a record, as was the accumulation of wins (32), away wins (16), goals (106), and positive goals difference (79).

"Perhaps the club has lost its unique identity, the special essence that made Swansea City different - better", wrote Stephen Kaplan and Jason Levien who took over two years ago. "I don't think so".

"We have the most points ever and with the competition you have with all the big teams it is very tough".

By far the signing of the season, Liverpool's Egyptian wizard Mohamed Salah absolutely fired up the league, since making his return to England last summer.

"But the motivation was never to get back on the horse, so to speak. It means the club is happy with my work and they trust me, and I hope to meet their expectations on the pitch and bring a lot of joy to the fans", said Ederson, who is keen for City to tick a certain outstanding major trophy off their list. When I was a little boy I always say England was a little bit like a paradise. Last year, the top six finished eight points clear of seventh place - Everton in that case - and the gap has widened still 12 months later.
