And Swansea - who look set to part company with Carvalhal - were soon celebrating when Andy King stroked home the opener, prompting chants of "we want 10" from the Stoke end, with former Potters boss Mark Hughes at the Saints helm.

Ederson has quickly settled into Pep Guardiola's side, and his record of 16 clean sheets were only bettered by Manchester United's David De Gea as he helped City to the Premier League title.

Liverpool are 25 points behind City going into this Sunday's final round of fixtures but they have inflicted defeat on Guardiola's team three times this season, ending their unbeaten league record in January before winning both legs of their Champions League quarter final. "Can we close that gap in one season with a very hard market?"

City have finished the campaign on +79, beating the old record of +71 set by Carlo Ancelotti's Chelsea title-winning side back in the 2009-10 season.

They were runaway leaders for most of the season and won the league in style, blowing teams away with their intense and expansive brand of football.

19 - The gap between first and second in the final standings has never been bigger than the 19-point gap between City and United.

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

Victory was not enough to take Liverpool up to third place, which was claimed by Tottenham with a stunning 5-4 win over Leicester in what may be their final game at Wembley before moving to their new stadium at White Hart Lane. Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool is heading to the Champions League.

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

Salah capped a top day by being named the Premier League player of the season for 2017/18.

It had been a frustrating afternoon up until then for the visitors, who were not at their best and had seen Raheem Sterling come closest to scoring when his deflected shot hit the post.

In a game that seemed overshadowed, Arsenal bid farewell to Arsene Wenger as manager.

Guardiola said: "What can I say?"

Gabriel Jesus, on as a substitute, found space to lift the ball over goalkeeper Alex McCarthy in the fourth minute of additional time, prompting wild celebrations among City's players. Chelsea, Arsenal and Burnley will go to the Europa League.

Gabriel Jesus' stoppage time victor - man, does this club play to the final season's whistle - made sure Man City added "first 100-point club" to its list of fantastic accomplishments.

As well as his shot-stopping skills, Ederson's ability with the ball has seen him become a flawless fit in Guardiola's team and director of football Txiki Begiristain believes he can go on to become one of the best keepers in the world.

For Swansea, their relegation ends a run of seven successive seasons in the Premier League.
