With 5 games yet to play, Manchester City are on the virtue of breaking 5 Premier League records after winning the title, previously set by Chelsea and Manchester United.
City has played like champions with most of their games in the final stretch of the season ended in cruise control of the Blues.
Now, with two trophies in their hall of fame, Pep Guardiola’s side will look forward to their last five games with five records to break. City will play two away matches against West Ham (A) and Southampton (A) while will host Swansea (H), Huddersfield (H) and Brighton (H).
5 Premier League Records Manchester City Can Break
Current record: 95
City’s record so far: 87
With just five games to go, City needs minimum three victories to surpass this record set up by Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea in 2004/05 season.
Currently, City has 28 wins and 3 draws and looking at their opponents there is high probability of Blues breaking this record with ease. Al fives team (West Ham, Southampton, Swansea, Huddersfield and Brighton) are in the bottom half of the table and getting three wins out of them will not be a big deal for hot favorites Man City.
Current record: 30
City’s record so far: 28
Another Chelsea record is about to be broken by the Pep Guardiola’s heavyweights, the record which was set by Antonio Conte who led the Chelsea to 30 wins after loosing some early matches in the season.
Manchester City need just 3 wins to break this old record and with the given opponents, this looks highly likely to happen.
Most Away Wins
Current record: 15
City’s record so far: 14
City has marked their dominance both in home and away matches, with two away matches still to go against West Ham and Southampton, City can break this record too made by Jose Mourinho’s 2004/05 Chelsea side.
Pep Guardiola’s City may win against West Ham easily but they would have to play a full strength squad against Southampton in their last games of the season.
Current record: 103
City’s record so far: 93
5 games, 11 Goals more to score! Well with players like Sergio Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne, Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus, you can expect City to break this record, that too with ease.
The 2009/10 Chelsea’s squad under Carlo Ancelotti totally thrashed their opponents with scorelines such as 7-0, 7-1, 7-2, and even 8-0 to set up this record of most goals.
Judging by their results in the reverse fixtures against the teams Man City is yet to play again, this is quite possible.
Biggest Winning Points Margin
Current record: 18
City’s lead now: 16
The 1999-2000 season saw Manchester United win the Premier League title by a massive 18 points, they finished on the pole position with 91 points while Arsenal finished that season in second place with just 73 points.
City can also achieve this feat but they will depend on United results too.
Man United next fixtures:
Bournemouth (A), Arsenal (H), Brighton (A), West Ham (A), Watford (H).
Red Devils beat all five teams in their reverse matches but one can’t predict the future and the fixtures are tough to predict.
As things stand with respect to the points margin, all City need, are for United to drop two points – i.e. one draw will do.
