Ederson, the Manchester City goalkeeper, has revealed his determination to score before the end of the season and hopes manager Pep Guardiola will entrust him to take a penalty or free-kick. The Brazilian has won widespread admirers after an outstanding debut season in English football following his £35 million move from Benfica last summer, not least for the range and quality of his passing and powerful left foot during City’s march to the title. City supporters were heard chanting Ederson’s name when Raheem Sterling won a penalty in Sunday’s 5-0 victory over Swansea in the hope that the goalkeeper could take the spot-kick. Gabriel Jesus ended up missing the penalty before Bernardo Silva scored from the rebound. Ederson’s idol growing up was Rogerio Ceni, the former Brazil No 1 who is the top scoring goalkeeper of all time with 131 goals in a 25-year career with Sao Paulo, and the City goalkeeper is hopeful of getting on the scoresheet himself. “I heard them [the fans] chanting my name, asking me to take the penalty, but Gabriel went there,” Ederson said. “Unfortunately he missed it and Bernardo, fortunately, scored, but if the manager had asked me to go there, I would have definitely scored. “I’m not sure if I would be able to do set-pieces, but I’m good at penalties, either using power or technique when I’m shooting. City have their regular penalty takers and we have good options, but if Pep asks me to take it, I’m there. Hopefully it will happen [before the end of the season]. I’d like to score.” Man City player ratings for title-winning season Ederson – who is in line for a significant pay hike this summer – believes he has won over those who questioned the fee City paid. “I am very happy to be a champion, because I have always dreamed of playing in the Premier League and I had the opportunity to make this wish this year,” he said. “I arrived with a heavy weight because my transfer was very expensive and there were a lot of doubts in some English newspapers but I was able to show my value.” Benjamin Mendy made his long-awaited return from injury against Swansea after seven months out with a ruptured cruciate but the £52 million France defender believes he will face a challenge to dislodge Fabian Delph at left back next season. Midfielder Delph has impressed as a makeshift left back in Mendy’s absence. “Maybe he will take my place,” Mendy said. “I need to work hard for my comeback but he has done great for the team this year, and Oleksandr Zinchenko the same. We are very good team-mates. But Fabian has been amazing – it is not his position but he has had a lot of assists, has been strong in defence. Every day I tell him he is superb.” Mendy celebrated eagerly with supporters when they invaded the pitch at the final whistle and the Frenchman, who has become a social media sensation, claimed in his eccentric way that he is no different from the fans. “It was amazing to be back after this long time,” he said. “I have never had a welcome like that, it was the best in the world. All the time I am laughing with the fans on social media. I am the same as the fans – I go to the toilet and everything, so I am the same!” City will escape disciplinary action from the Football Association after their jubilant supporters invaded the pitch at the end of Sunday’s 5-0 victory over Swansea City in celebration of the club’s title success. Thousands of fans stormed the Etihad Stadium pitch at the final whistle in City’s first home match since they were crowned Premier League champions a week earlier. The FA will seek City’s observations over the matter, and about a blue flare being set off by a supporter, but there is no danger of the club being charged. It is understood that the governing body felt the celebratory nature of the scenes and the absence of any visible threat to stewards or officials negated any need to charge City. Wigan Athletic were charged after fans invaded the field at the DW Stadium at the end of the League One club’s FA Cup win over City in February. It is thought there was a more aggressive undertone to that pitch invasion which prompted the charge although that case has still to be resolved.
Ederson: I would have definitely buried penalty Gabriel Jesus missed and want to score for Man City before season ends

Manchester City players made sure they enjoyed their maiden Premier League title win under Pep Guardiola in a night of joyous celebrations that began in a quiet village pub. While Guardiola was busy finishing off a round of golf with world number 12 Tommy Fleetwood, City's stars wasted no time in toasting their title triumph. Less than an hour after Manchester United's shock home defeat to West Brom confirmed arch-rivals City as champions, Guardiola's players headed to the Railway pub in Hale, near Altrincham, where the party began. Speaking to Sky Sports in the wake of Manchester United's surprise defeat, Man City defender Vincent Kompany said he was getting ready to "go and meet the lads". Right back Kyle Walker tweeted he was "on his way to Benjamin Mendy's house to pick him up for the party", while Bernardo Silva uploaded a video of himself and John Stones on their way to join their team-mates in the Hale pub.

"If there's kids in the room, cover their ears or send them out," he said. "It's been a f***ing long journey; especially for those of you that have been a blue for more than 40 years!

Manchester City players made sure they enjoyed their maiden Premier League title win under Pep Guardiola in a night of joyous celebrations that began in a quiet village pub. While Guardiola was busy finishing off a round of golf with world number 12 Tommy Fleetwood, City's stars wasted no time in toasting their title triumph. Less than an hour after Manchester United's shock home defeat to West Brom confirmed arch-rivals City as champions, Guardiola's players headed to the Railway pub in Hale, near Altrincham, where the party began. Speaking to Sky Sports in the wake of Manchester United's surprise defeat, Man City defender Vincent Kompany said he was getting ready to "go and meet the lads". Right back Kyle Walker tweeted he was "on his way to Benjamin Mendy's house to pick him up for the party", while Bernardo Silva uploaded a video of himself and John Stones on their way to join their team-mates in the Hale pub.

"If there's kids in the room, cover their ears or send them out," he said. "It's been a f***ing long journey; especially for those of you that have been a blue for more than 40 years!

Speeches, jagerbombs and Oasis: how Manchester City players celebrated being crowned Premier League champions
Manchester City players made sure they enjoyed their maiden Premier League title win under Pep Guardiola in a night of joyous celebrations that began in a quiet village pub. While Guardiola was busy finishing off a round of golf with world number 12 Tommy Fleetwood, City's stars wasted no time in toasting their title triumph. Less than an hour after Manchester United's shock home defeat to West Brom confirmed arch-rivals City as champions, Guardiola's players headed to the Railway pub in Hale, near Altrincham, where the party began. Speaking to Sky Sports in the wake of Manchester United's surprise defeat, Man City defender Vincent Kompany said he was getting ready to "go and meet the lads". Right back Kyle Walker tweeted he was "on his way to Benjamin Mendy's house to pick him up for the party", while Bernardo Silva uploaded a video of himself and John Stones on their way to join their team-mates in the Hale pub.

Holding a pint of Guinness, the Belgian paid tribute to City's long-suffering fans in a speech that fans called "Churchillian". "If there's kids in the room, cover their ears or send them out," he said. "It's been a f***ing long journey; especially for those of you that have been a blue for more than 40 years! Kyle Walker poses for selfies with Man City fans before getting team celebrations under way Credit: Alex Hunt Twitter "But tonight we have won it again. So let's celebrate together and have a drink!" The group featuring Bernardo Silva, John Stones, Fabian Delph, Kyle Walker and Bernardo Silva then led chants of "Champions!" before handing out jagerbombs to fans. A number of well-known team songs were sang including the famous terrace chant paying tribute to Yaya Toure and his brother Kolo. 8:30pm Kyle Walker and Bernardo Silva shared snippets of their night on Instagram Credit: Kyle Walker and Bernardo Silva Instagram City players then posed for selfies with fans inside and outside the pub before heading across the road to Hale Wine Bar at 8:30pm.
