The victory comes a shade over 16 years since the first victory at what was then the City of Manchester Stadium – a 4-1 victory over Aston Villa.
It was City’s 310th home Premier League game – an unbroken run at the ground the Blues moved to in time for the 2003/04 campaign and the overall stats have a certain symmetry to them.
Along with the 200 victories achieved, City have drawn 55 home games and lost 55 times.
It means the Blues average 2.122 goals per home game – an excellent ratio over 310 games and a total of 658 goals scored to date.
Including domestic cup competitions and European games, there have been 417 matches played over the last 16 years, 274 of which have ended in victory, 69 have been drawn and we’ve be beaten on 74 occasions.
Out total goals in all games played is 929 with 371 conceded.
It won’t come as a huge surprise to learn Sergio Aguero has scored 151 of our total goals at the Etihad (from just 175 games) and David Silva has played 201 games on home turf in all competitions – both are top of either list.
Pep Guardiola needs just six more games to become the manager with the most amount of games at the Etihad.
Roberto Mancini has 94 while Pep is currently on 89.
