    Greatest Premierleague/Div 1 champions ever without a doubt.
    I never thought I’d see the day when a team notched up 100pts in a single season.

    4-4-2's top ten

    1. Manchester City 2017-18
    2. Arsenal 2003-04
    3. Chelsea 2004-05
    4. Chelsea 2016-17
    5. Manchester United 2008-09
    6. Chelsea 2005-06
    7. Manchester United 1993-94
    8. Leicester City 2015-16
    9. Manchester United 1999-2000
    10. Manchester United 2007-08

    Agree with the top 3 but surely our 2011-12 or 2013-14 teams were better than some of the others. Chelsea's 2009/10 team with its goals record until this season as well.
    And what aboout Liverpool's famous title winning 2013-14 team?

    I'd say United 99/00 deserve it for the 18 point gap and Chelsea 16/17 for the 93 points but not sure about the rest.

    Edit: Having said that there's only Leicester and United 07/08 that aren't 90+ points so maybe it's not so far out.

    It doesn't seem to count according to the biased British media. Sky's season review basically put us behind Leicester( money spent) How can we not be the greatest ! We have taken all the records in one season.

    Centurions vs Invincibles

    Invincibles: W26 | P90 | Goals 71 | Win % 68

    Centurions: W32 | P100 | Goals 106 | win % 84

    When you look at the stats I was shocked to see such a massive difference.....the centurions are clearly miles ahead.

    I guess you also have to consider the level of competition in each respective campaign.

    Were Arsenal's rivals in 2003/04 of a higher quality than ours this season?
