    • City have equalled Arsenal's tally of three Premier League titles - only Manchester United (13) and Chelsea (five) have won more.
    • City have won the title with five games remaining, equalling the English top-flight record. Manchester United in 1907-08 and 2000-01, and Everton in 1984-85 all won the title with five games to spare.
    • It is the second earliest, in terms of date, that the title has been sealed, just behind Manchester United's win on 14 April 2001.
    • City's 28 wins matches their record tally of victories in a top-flight league season - set in 2011-12, when they sealed their 28th victory on the final day.
    • They have scored 93 goals this season - they need seven goals in their final five league games to become the fourth team to score 100 or more goals in a Premier League campaign.
    • City have been at the top of the league for 240 days in 2017-18 - one day fewer than Manchester United have spent at the top of the table since Sergio Aguero's goal won the title in May 2012.
    • Guardiola is the first Spaniard to win the English top-flight title, and he has won the top-flight league title in seven of his nine seasons as a manager.

    RECORDS SMASHED
    CONSECUTIVE PREMIER LEAGUE WINS
    CITY TOTAL: 18

    PREVIOUS RECORD: 13

    PREVIOUS RECORD HOLDER: Chelsea

    From Raheem Sterling's last-gasp winner at Bournemouth on August 26 until City's 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace on New Year's Eve, they won 18 Premier League games in a row, demolishing the 13-game record set by Chelsea in 2016/17. The streak also beat Arsenal's 14-game run of wins which was split across the end of the 2001/02 season and the start of 2002/03.

    MOST PASSES IN A PREMIER LEAGUE GAME
    CITY TOTAL: 902

    PREVIOUS RECORD: 843

    PREVIOUS RECORD HOLDER: Man City

    The 902 passes achieved against Chelsea in March's 1-0 win, was a new Premier League record, surpassing the total set by Guardiola's side in October against West Brom. Ilkay Gundogan's 167 successful passes and 181 touches from the same game were also Premier League records.

    RECORDS EQUALLED
    GAMES TO PLAY WITH TITLE WON
    CITY TOTAL: 5

    PREVIOUS RECORD: 5

    PREVIOUS RECORD HOLDER: Manchester United (2000/01)

    The United side of 2000/01 held the previous record for winning the title with the highest number of games remaining, being crowned champions with five fixtures to play after a title-winning 4-2 victory over Coventry at Old Trafford. City have matched that record.

    RECORDS STILL TO BREAK
    MOST WINS
    CITY TOTAL: 28

    CURRENT RECORD: 30

    RECORD HOLDER: Chelsea (2016/17)

    City are on course to record more wins than any other club in a Premier League season, having already won 28 en route to their coronation.

    The current record holders are Antonio Conte's Chelsea last term with 30, but City will only need to win two of their last five games to match the Blues - and three to set a new record.

    MOST AWAY WINS
    CITY TOTAL: 14

    CURRENT RECORD: 15

    RECORD HOLDER: Chelsea (2004/05)

    City have won 14 of their 17 away fixtures, dropping points at Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Burnley.

    Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side of 2004/05 hold the current record of 15 away wins. However, City will break this record if they win both of their remaining away games against West Ham and Southampton.

    MOST POINTS
    CITY TOTAL: 87

    CURRENT RECORD: 95

    RECORD HOLDER: Chelsea (2004/05)

    The same Chelsea side also hold the record for most points in a season with 95. Again, City are on course to snatch this record from Mourinho's list of accolades.

    In fact, Guardiola's side still have another 15 points up for grabs and five successive wins would take their tally to a remarkable 102 points.

    MOST AWAY POINTS
    CITY TOTAL: 44

    CURRENT RECORD: 48

    RECORD HOLDER: Chelsea (2004/05)

    Chelsea collected 48 points on the road during 2004/05 and Guardiola will snatch another record from Mourinho if City win both of their remaining away games - a win and a draw would match the record.

    MOST GOALS SCORED
    CITY TOTAL: 93

    CURRENT RECORD: 103

    RECORD HOLDER: Chelsea (2009/10)

    Chelsea scored 103 goals during their title-winning season in 2009/10 under Carlo Ancelotti, which equates to 2.7 goals per game on average.

    Under Guardiola's stewardship, City are on track to surpass Chelsea's. They need 11 goals from the last five matches at a rate of 2.2 per game to break the record.

    GOAL DIFFERENCE
    CITY TOTAL: +68

    CURRENT RECORD: +71

    RECORD HOLDER: Chelsea (2009/10)

    The same Chelsea side ended the season with a record +71 goal difference, boosted by 29 goals from top goalscorer Didier Drogba.

    City are almost certainly set to surpass this record with a current goal difference of +68 - having faced a league-low 77 shots on target and conceded a league-low 25 goals.

    POINTS AHEAD OF SECOND
    CITY TOTAL: 16

    CURRENT RECORD: 18

    RECORD HOLDER: Manchester United (1999/00)

    Manchester United ended the 1999/00 campaign 18 points ahead of runners-up Arsenal, despite winning only 28 of their fixtures.

    City currently command a 16-point lead over United so this record is also in their sights if they can finish the season stronger than their great rivals.

    It is a bit unfair for 14 April to beat 15 April as a record as it is entirely down to TV schedules.

    The record has to be the number of rounds of matches to play, so they are equal.

    Had United played Saturday in any of the two TV slots we WOULD have won it on the 14th.

    Agreed. I wouldn't put any great importance on dates that titles are won by. The season doesn't start and finish on exactly the same date every season,and that's ignoring the role played by TV scheduling.
