Ederson calls on Guardiola to give him unique opportunity

"I'm not going to tell them", he said.

"Football is an emotional game", said Guardiola, as quoted by the Mirror.

So, how does it feel to be a Premier League champion aged just 24?

"I hope we can break all the records - we are able to do it".

"They didn't ask me for one title".

David Silva scored one goal and set up another for Raheem Sterling in the first half, before further strikes by Kevin De Bruyne — a thunderous 25-meter effort — Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus sealed an easy win for City amid a party atmosphere at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The incident at City came at the final whistle, the champions having just beaten Swansea City 5-0.

It reaffirmed City's belief that he is the natural successor to compatriot Fernandinho, 32, who is expected to play a smaller role as the newly-crowned Premier League champions look to make up for their disappointing Champions League exit at the hands of Liverpool. They said to do what you believe to do and try to be constant for a long time, for as long as possible. "I think if we manage to keep the same level we have had along the season, we'll do it". That is why always in the next season I want to be focused in the Premier League.

First, however, the City manager can enjoy the remainder of this extraordinary campaign, although Guardiola warned that next season would be tougher on his players - as indeed would he. "When they used to run five metres now they run three metres". Its current goal difference of plus 73 is two better than the all-time best, Chelsea's 71 in 2009-10.

However, the Portuguese coach reckons even if those errors are eradicated next season, it will be hard to challenge for the title if free-spending City bolster their squad once more over the summer. It happened in Barcelona and it happened in Bayern Munich. That is why next season will be more difficult, our relationship will be harder. "I know I have to press more, I have to be in front of them more, I have to make sure they arrive at the training session at the right time".
