City close in on more Premier League records

City’s record-breaking season steamrollers on having clinched the Premier League title following Manchester United’s 1-0 home loss to West Brom.

In view of the Blues' magnificent campaign, here are the records we ave broken so, plus the ones the newly-crowned champions are closing in on...

Earliest title win: With five games remaining, City have equalled the top flight-record for the earliest title win in terms of games. Only United (1907/08 & 2000/01) and Everton (1984/85) have won it with five games still to play. In date terms, it's the second fastest title confirmation in top flight history.

Consecutive Premier League wins: The Blues set a new record earlier this season by winning 18 matches on the bounce – a run that began away to Bournemouth and ended with a 1-0 win at Newcastle United.

Consecutive Premier League away wins: City equalled the record of 11 away victories in a row with the victory at Newcastle but were denied posting a new milestone with a 0-0 draw away to Crystal Palace.

Most wins: With 29 victories so far, City need just three more victories from the five remaining games to top Chelsea’s record of 30 Premier League wins in a season.

Biggest winning points margin: The Blues remain16 points clear of Manchester United who hold the current winning margin record of 18. City will look to increase that gap in the weeks that remain.

Most away wins: City have won 14 games on the road this season and have two games to go away from home. Only by winning those matches can the Blues create a new record and beat Chelsea’s record of 15.

Best goal difference: The Blues are bang on course to set a new goal difference record with a current figure of +73 having now topped Chelsea's record of +71..

Most goals: Chelsea hold the record with 103 Premier League goals, but City have 98 to date – that’s just five more needed in the four games that remain, so if the Blues keep the seasonal average up in the final strait, that record will be beaten.

Most home goals: The Blues have work to do here to match Chelsea’s 68 – so far, Pep’s men have banged in 58, so would need 10 from the remaining three Etihad games – again, not impossible.

Most points: Another record held by Chelsea, City  now have 90 points and need 5 points from a possible 12 to equal the record  held by Chelsea (2004/05) of 95. .

City have set some new Club and other notable records this campaign:...

Successive away wins – 11 – set between May and December 2017.

Sergio Aguero broke the Club scoring record and is on 199 in all competitions.

Pep Guardiola became the first manager to win the Premier League Manager of the Month for four successive months.

To break the most goals scored by any City team in a single season, the Blues will have to bag 25 in the remaining matches having so far notched 132 in all competitions - the current record of 156 seems unlikely with only four games guaranteed still to play

The Blues scored the 100th Champions League goal when Gabriel Jesus netted against FC Basel.

City have set a new Club record of 14 away League wins in one season.

The 902 passes achieved against Chelsea earlier this month is a new Premier League record, as was Ilkay Gundogan’s 167 successful passes and 181 touches from the same game

Kevin De Bruyne is poised to top the Premier League assists list and Nicolas Otamendi the most passes, while Ederson is just two clean sheets behind David De Gea in the race for the Golden Glove.

City's possession figure of 82.13% against Everton was the highest by an away side in a single Premier League game since such data became available.

Guardiola became the second quickest manager to reach 50 Premier League wins, managing the feat in just 69 games – Jose Mourinho (50 wins from 63) is the fastest.

City are only the 10th team to have beaten every other top-flight club during the same campaign and the first to do so since 2010/11.

Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and David Silva have all reached double figures for assists this season and have contributed 38 assists between them. Only Liverpool (1995-96) and Arsenal (2004-05) have matched the feat and with Raheem Sterling on eight goals, he is closing in on making it four City starts in double figures.

De Bruyne, Silva and Sane have all been nominated for the PFA Player of the Year – the first time City have had three players shortlisted and Ederson, Sane and Sterling have been nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year award, too.
