Manchester City ended the 2016/17 Premier League campaign in strong form winning six of the final eight games, including two draws. This set the tone for the proceeding season where a pulsating City side went on a 22-game unbeaten start in which they dropped just four points.
Liverpool were the side to finally end this seemingly unstoppable surge, in a phenomenal 4-3 win at Anfield. This would be only one of two defeats City suffered during the season as Pep Guardiola’s side became the first side in Premier League history to secure 100 points in a single season.
During the 30-match unbeaten run, the Cityzens won 26 matches, scoring an impressive 87 goals whilst also being tight at the back, being scored on 18 times. It would be no surprise to see City duplicate this form whilst under the management of Guardiola, but with increasing competition at the top of the table it may get harder.
