With another captivating Premier League season over, we look at the records set across the competition in 2022/23.
Man City set the benchmark
- Arsenal spent 248 days at the top of the table, the most for a team not to win the title.
- Man City's 4-1 win over Liverpool in April was City's 100th Premier League home win under Pep Guardiola, in their 128th match at the Etihad Stadium. It was the fastest a manager had reached a century of home wins in the competition, beating Arsene Wenger's record of 139 matches.
- Aged 15 years and 181 days, Arsenal's Ethan Nwaneri became the youngest-ever Premier League player when he came on as a substitute in September's 3-0 win at Brentford. He was the first player to appear in the competition before turning 16.

- There were a record 1,084 goals across the 2022/23 season, beating the previous record of 1,072 set in 2018/19.
