The 2017–18 season was Manchester City's 116th season of competitive football, 89th season in the top division of English football and 21st season in the Premier League since the league was first created, with City as one of the original 22 founder-members.[1] In addition to the Premier League, the club also competed in the FA Cup, EFL Cup and UEFA Champions League; for the Champions League, it was their seventh consecutive season competing in the competition.

City won their third Premier League title on 15 April 2018 following West Bromwich Albion's 1–0 win away to second place Manchester United, and the EFL Cup with a 3–0 win over Arsenal.

The season was momentous for the vast number of Premier League records set during the season, these included: most points (100), most away points (50), most points ahead of second (19), most wins (32), most away wins (16), most goals (106), best goal difference (+79), most consecutive victories (18), biggest share of away possession (82.13%), fewest minutes losing (153) and quickest team to score 100 goals (35 matches). Elsewhere the team equalled the records for earliest title win (5 games), most opponents beaten in a season (19), and most consecutive away wins (11). [2]

Season review[edit]

On 1 November, Sergio Agüero scored his 178th City goal in a 4–2 Champions League away victory over Napoli to become the club's all-time leading goalscorer, surpassing the previous total by Eric Brook.[3]

On 25 February, City won their first silverware of the Pep Guardiola era, beating Arsenal 3–0 at Wembley Stadium to win the 2017–18 EFL Cup.

On 15 April, City were confirmed as Premier League champions following Manchester United's 0–1 defeat at home to West Bromwich Albion,[4] this was their third Premier League title and fifth English top flight title at the time and also completed their second league and League Cup double in 4 years.

City broke and set several new club and English football records during their 2017–18 campaign:[5][6][7][8][9][10][11]

  • new National records for consecutive away (11) and overall victories (20) in all competitions; and for consecutive league wins (18)
  • new Premier League records for most points (100); most goals scored (106); total wins achieved (32) in a single season; largest winning margin (19 pts); largest goal difference (+79); away games won in a season (16); away points won in a season (50 pts); and the youngest ever premier league winner (Phil Foden -17 years 350 days)
  • equalled the Premier League record for consecutive away league wins (11)
  • new club records for consecutive games unbeaten in all competitions (28); consecutive games unbeaten in the league (30); consecutive home wins in all competitions (20); and fewest goals conceded in a fully played season (non-war) (27)

Pre-season and friendlies[edit]

On 16 May 2017, Manchester City announced they would face Manchester United as part of the 2017 International Champions Cup.[12] Matches against Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid were also confirmed as part of the same tournament.[13] A standalone pre-season friendly against West Ham United also took place in Iceland.[14] A friendly was also scheduled against partner club Girona to take place after the first match of the Premier League season.[15]
