Manchester City’s phenomenal Premier League campaign has been highlighted with the release of a number of impressive statistics.

On top of amassing an impressive 98 points, bringing the stand to a record-breaking 198 over the course of two seasons, City also came out on top of several other key statistical categories that underline our domestic dominance. (H/T MANCITY.COM)

City recorded more home wins (18) and more away games (14) than any other side, with a total of 32 victories overall equalling the Premier League record set by City last season.

City became the first team to end a top-flight campaign with 14 consecutive victories, breaking Arsenal’s record of 13 in 2001-02.

The tally of 95 goals was the highest number scored by any side, and City also managed more shots (683) than any other top-flight team.

The number of 26,576 completed passes was more than nearest rival Chelsea, who completed 25,070.

And City also finished top in terms of average possession, with 68.1 percent over the course of the campaign.

Pep Guardiola’s squad also had the distinction of only conceding 238 shots, the lowest total in the division.

All in all a fantastic deomestic season. It can be made better if City achieve a domestic treble something never done before.

Manchester City, back to back, Premier League Champions is a sweet sentence!
