They've been smashing new records all season.

.

Premier League champions Manchester City rewarded Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson for his role in a record 100-point campaign by extending his contract to 2025 on Sunday.

The title race has been all over bar the shouting for some time now.

Pep Guardiola reacted to the team's 106th league goal of the season by leaping out of his seat in the dugout and punching the air.

Finding the right replacement for Conte should he go is Chelsea's top priority and the right candidate could be chosen with an eye to finally bring through some of the side that won a fifth consecutive FA Youth Cup final last month.

"It's incredible. I don't have the words, 50 points at home, 50 points away".

With a 19-point advantage over United, City outperformed their rivals' 1999-2000 margin of 18 over Arsenal.

The goal of the visit to Pyongyang Pompeo called " complete and verifiable denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula". But Libya's program was not almost as advanced as North Korea and the country had not already stockpiled weapons.


However, Guardiola has admitted that he does not expect his side to have things quite as easy next season and he also revealed that he thinks Liverpool's January signing of centre-back Virgil Van Dijk means Jurgen Klopp's side are well placed to launch a title assault next season.

"I want to win everything we can, all of the competitions".

The most obvious difference between Guardiola's City and other recent champions is that City have a stronger squad, but there is also an important stylistic difference.

Like a hidden album track on a gold disc, Manchester City waited until the 94th minute of the 38th game in a season of parameter-pushing to give their fans something extra.

But their game is not all about strangling and picking off the other team, it's much more positive than that.

But there was more excitement elsewhere on the final day - notably at Wembley where Tottenham beat Leicester 5-4 in a ridiculous game of end-to-end football. "It's a good club".

"I see a bright future for my successor because the team has a good attitude and quality." said the Frenchman.
