Liverpool nab CL spot, Swansea relegated from EPL

Sean Dyche applauds the players

The 'keeper played a crucial role in helping City to the title, one they won with a record points total of 100 after Gabriel Jesus' late victor against Southampton on Sunday.

The final-day "miracle" that Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal required didn't happen, with the Welsh club losing 2-1 to Stoke to end its seven-year stay in the league and ensure Southampton stayed up.

And after winning the Premier League by a record 19 points, Ederson is targeting City's first ever Champions League crown next season.

It was Sir Alex Ferguson's United who previously held the record, having finished 18 points ahead of second-placed Arsenal in the 1999-2000 season, and City needed Fergie time to finally find a breakthrough deep into stoppage time at St Mary's. "What we have done this season, for all the staff, Mikel, his contribution, was outstanding, amazing".

"A lot of goals, concede few, a lot of points, wins at home, wins away; everything was ideal this season and finished the way we deserved to finish".

Extending that form out over the course of 38 games is now the challenge for the German to deliver a first league title since 1990.

According to the reports, the trio were on their second leg of a three-flight journey to Ontario, Canada , from Lagos. A United crew member identified in the suit as Russell H. nearly immediately ordered Obioma off the plane.

The old record was held by Liverpool, who collected 98 points in the 1978-79 season (adjusted to three points for a win). I want the best for my friends and he's a friend of mine and I want the best.

"We were better than our opponents and the records we broke came from the way we played".

The only trouble for them now is repeating the same thing for next season.

The unlikely 10-goal swing required to put Saints in danger of relegation never looked to be on the cards and Mark Hughes' well-manned defence coped assuredly with mounting City pressure after the break. Burnley's Jack Cork, Leicester defender Harry Maguire, Brighton's Lewis Dunk, Mathias Jorgensen of Huddersfield and Swansea's Alfie Mawson are the outfielders to achieve the feat, along with goalkeepers Jordan Pickford, Asmir Begovic, Mat Ryan, Jonas Lossl and Lukasz Fabianski. That position went to West Bromwich Albion, which lost 2-0 at Crystal Palace.

"It was a great day, a happy day, because they celebrated staying in the Premier League", he said. Liverpool, the way they play and the quality of their players - not just up front, I think [Virgil] van Dijk has helped them a lot to be more consistent in the defensive department.
