Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes extends contract until 2025

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes extends contract until 2025

Perhaps the club most attuned to the riddle that the Premiership title defence is, has been Chelsea, who held the record for most points (95 points in 2004-05) and most wins (30 wins in 2016-17) before Manchester City shattered the records.

It might be time to revisit that opinion.

In assorted competitions, Liverpool, Manchester United, Bristol City and even League One side Wigan Athletic have proved City are far from infallible.

Speaking at a news conference on Friday, Guardiola said: "Jurgen [Klopp] is a top manager, creating not just an offensive style and not just thinking about the spectators".

Nonetheless, it was good for both players and supporters to go into the game against the champions knowing that safety was all-but confirmed - it was a positive atmosphere all around which is to be treasured after such a torrid campaign. Outside of that, relative chaos.

"You expect the best team in England to always go to the end and we ended up losing a game I thought we possibly should have won".

Swansea had needed to win and Southampton to lose to Man City, with a 10-goal swing in goal difference. Add that to Paul Dickov's equaliser in the 2-2 draw with Gillingham in the infamous Division Two playoff final in 1999 and it seems like City only ever make their landmark moments with seconds to spare. Never before has every team outside the top six finished with a negative figure. Arsenal finished sixth with 63 points.




A year later, Jordan moved to Aston Villa, whose awful campaign ended with relegation as they finished last on the table with only 17 points.

Low point: The dismissal of manager Craig Shakespeare feels like it occurred years ago now, but he was quickly shown the door after Leicester won just one of their first eight games this season. Everton was in the relegation zone when it fired Ronald Koeman in October, for example.

As usual, there are three teams that have gotten relegated from top-flight football. Few could have predicted Sean Dyche's exceptional effort in helping a Burnley side many predicted might struggle to maintain the dizzy heights of seventh place, while not many predicted that David Wagner would keep Huddersfield above the thick black line. "A domestic league will certainly play Tuesday and Wednesday". Of course, always I think the records are a effect of our game, our consistency. "To share money between the big clubs and small clubs will become a problem".

Man Utd will have another summer to improve and strengthen in the transfer market, with Jose Mourinho expected to clear a lot of the deadwood that has weighed down the club this season.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson showed one of the most incredible tattoo found in the body of a footballer after completing a move to Manchester City. You could look at Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal. Their youth academy bustling with technically astute players at all age bands, Manchester City most definitely have a headstart in cementing their status as one of Europe's powerhouses. It is hardly what global viewers, who long admire the competitiveness and intensity of English football, want to see.

Ederson has played a key part in the Citizens' record-breaking Premier League title success, keeping 16 clean sheets in his 36 outings. "That is quite rare", Dyche said.

Worse was to follow for Guardiola on Merseyside, as a 3-0 first-leg defeat put the Champions League quarter-final beyond his team, who were beaten 2-1 by in the return.
