Record breakers: Most Points

Of all City’s impressive stats this season, it’s hard to see past the points accumulated during an amazing campaign.

In the 25 years of the Premier League era, no team has ever managed to hit the 100-point park before with the Blues’ 32 wins and four draws meaning only 14 points were dropped along the way to the title.

The maximum points any Premier League side can achieve in a 38-game season is 114, which underlines what an incredible campaign it has been.

EARLY SIGNS: Liverpool thrashed 5-0

Chelsea’s 13-year record of 95 points has taken some beating and, up until a few weeks ago, was the total to beat.

That season, the West Londoners won 29 games, drew eight and lost just once – but Jose Mourinho’s side scored 34 goals less than City managed this year.

Only six teams have managed to get 90 points or more since the Premier League season was reduced to 38 matches in 1995/96.

The first three Premier League seasons were 42-game campaigns with Manchester United’s 92 points in 1993/94 the highest total.

The fewest points the champions have been crowned with was United in 1996/97 when just 75 points were enough to secure the title – meaning Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea’s total this season would have all been enough to win the league that year.

Newcastle finished runners-up on 68 points in 96/97 – that would have secured them just a sixth place finish this year.

MARKER: City's 1-0 win at Chelsea showed title-winning class

City’s first Premier League title success in 2011/12 saw the Blues tied on 89 points with United and only goal difference separating the Manchester tribes.

The Reds bounced back the season after, again ending on 89 points but were well clear of the chasing pack.

City’s 2013/14 triumph was achieved with 86 points and a two-point winning margin over Liverpool.

The Blues passed Chelsea’s 95-point landmark with the 3-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

LUCKY THREE: Fernandinho writes his name on the score sheet.

The Liverpool side of 1978/79 ended with 30 wins and eight draws to accumulate 68 points – when two points were awarded for a win – and was the previous all-time best tally as it equated to 98 points with the current three points for a win of today.

However, that was with a 42-game season.

As Pep Guardiola said, one day a team will break City’s points record – but they’re going to have to be an exceptional side to do so.
