Not only are Manchester City the best Premier League team of 2017/18 they have blazed a trail to set marks unmatched in the 26 seasons of the competition.

Here we look at the Premier League records they have broken or matched on their way to the title.

Most consecutive PL victories

The 18-match winning run that City enjoyed between victory at AFC Bournemouth on 26 August and the 1-0 win at Newcastle United on 27 December broke two records: the record of 13 consecutive wins in the same campaign, held jointly by Arsenal (2001/02) and Chelsea (2016/17); and Arsenal's overall record of 14 consecutive league victories, achieved between February and August 2002.

Most consecutive away wins

The victory at Newcastle was also City's 11th away win in a row, a sequence that started on 21 May last season. That matched the record set by Chelsea between 6 April 2008 and 7 December 2008.

Biggest share of away possession

City had 82.13 per cent of possession at Everton on 31 March, the highest by an away team in a PL match since these records began.

Most opponents beaten

City are the only team in English top-flight history to reach 100 points in a single season. They reached that century with a stoppage-time winner at Southampton, which came after they beat Brighton & Hove Albion in their previous match to break Chelsea's record of 95 points set from 2004/05.

With the final-day win over Southampton, City also surpassed Chelsea's 48 away points picked up in 2004/05. Pep Guardiola's side finished on 50 points on their travels.
