A season beyond compare. Manchester City have broken almost every record there is to break. Pep Guardiola has masterminded arguably the most dominant season in Premier League history, all while playing the most intricate, pulsating, mesmerising, scintillating and jaw-dropping football the English top division has ever witnessed.
Here is the stunning list of every Premier League record Manchester City Football Club have broken this season.
Points – 100
City are the first team in top division history to reach the 100-point mark. To put that into context, the maximum amount of points a team can reach is 114. Dropping just 14 points in a 38 game season will surely never be replicated.
And what a way City made the century mark. Six years ago on May 13th, Sergio Aguero scored in the 93rd minute to win the title for City, six years on, Gabriel Jesus scores in the 93rd minute away to Southampton to seal City’s legendary status.
Wins – 32
Chelsea set the bar for the most wins in a Premier League season only 12 months ago when they won 30 games on the way to their 5th Premier League title.
Now City have topped that with an unprecedented 32 wins. Losing only two and drawing four.
Consecutive wins – 18
Another record Antonio Conte’s Chelsea only set last season was beaten when Guardiola’s men went on an 18 winning streak in the league spanning from August 26th to December 27th last.
City equalled the record with a win over Manchester United at Old Trafford in December but it came to an end after a scoreless draw away to Crystal Palace on New Years Eve.
Goals – 106
City’s dominant, attacking football was rewarded with a total of 106 goals scored in the League this season. A record previously set by Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea back in 2010 when they scored 103.
Away wins – 16
Yesterday’s late win against the Saints saw City break yet another record. The Cityzens become the first team in Premier League history to win 16 games away from home in a season, losing only one back in January at Anfield.
Points Margin – 19
The blue’s finished an incredible 19 points ahead of second placed Manchester United. A record previously set by the latter club during the 99/00 season.
Goal Difference – +79
Bad day for Chelsea as their record of a +71 goal difference was beaten as City finished on a +79 difference.
Youngest – Phil Foden
Phil Foden officially became the youngest player to ever win the Premier League, after he made his fifth league appearance during yesterday’s win at St. Mary’s. The Stockport lad is only 17 years old.
Possession – 82.1%
City’s 82.1% possession against Everton is the highest ever recorded since records began.
