Ederson will surely now be looking to add to his medal collection by helping City retain the Premier League, with next season's Champions League trophy also on his mind.

Manchester City are the first-ever team to reach 100 points in the Premier League. Manchester United finished 19 points behind City.

The Egyptian forward joined the Reds from Serie A outfit, Roma last summer and he has scored 44 goals in all competitions in his first term at the club. With United as runners-up, City's winning margin was the largest in Premier League history, one point ahead of the 18-point United held over Arsenal at the end of the 1999-2000 season.

"I feel for them, I really do because they turn up week in, week out in such large numbers and they have been let down massively this season".

It had looked as though the 100-point mark would evade them and that they would end the season on something of a bum note until Jesus's timely reminder that this City side are no ordinary team. Manchester City also has the likes of Raheem Sterling, David Silva, Leroy Sane and Bernardo Silva who can change the game at any point in time, especially when City are in a tough situation and need a goal to save the game.

"That is going to happen".

Speaking after their final day loss, Cavalhal told BBC Sport: "In my opinion, the few points that the team achieved in the first part of the season sent us down. That will not be important".
