Manchester City’s title win in numbers

Pep Guardiola’s side clinched the title with a record-equalling five games to spare and could set several new marks.

Manchester City have won the Premier League title after Manchester United were beaten by West Brom on Sunday.

City’s win over Tottenham on Saturday meant their rivals needed to avoid defeat to keep the title battle alive, but Jay Rodriguez’s header gave rock-bottom Albion a precious win.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at some of the eye-catching statistics achieved by Pep Guardiola’s side.

5 – City have won the title with five games remaining, equalling the record set by United in the 2000-01 campaign.

18 – the record top-flight winning run achieved by City between August 26 against Bournemouth and December 27 at Newcastle. Crystal Palace ended the sequence with a goalless draw on New Year’s Eve.

2 – defeats this season, to Liverpool in January and United with the title on the line. Everton, Palace and Burnley are the only other teams to take points off City this term.

8 – City are only eight points off Chelsea’s record for a Premier League season, set in 2004-05. Three more wins will be enough to set a new mark.

2.82 – goals per game, leaving City on course to beat Chelsea’s 2009-10 record for a Premier League season of 103 (2.71 per game).

Sergio Aguero

21 – top-scorer Sergio Aguero’s league goal tally this season, third in the division behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

15 – Kevin De Bruyne leads the top flight in assists. City have the top three in that category with Leroy Sane on 12 and David Silva 11.

2,902 – defender Nicolas Otamendi has completed the most passes in the Premier League this season, with midfielders Fernandinho and De Bruyne also in the top five.

25 – goals conceded, the best record in this season’s top flight.

15 – clean sheets, ranking second in the league behind United (16).
