Stoke City v Manchester City - Premier League
Two trophies in the bag but Pep Guardiola may not be done yet

The ease with which Manchester City took the lead in the Premier League title race before extending it beyond the reach of the clubs in the chasing pack has made this season a little boring in that regard. But make no mistake, City are deserving champions.

The Cityzens played most of their games in the final stretch of the season in cruise control. One reason was so they could focus on the Champions League but that did not go according to plan for Pep Guardiola's side as they were dumped out by Liverpool.

Now, with two trophies in hand and nothing else to play for, all City have to look forward to with five games to go are five records that could be theirs for a long time to come.

Remaining fixtures for Manchester City: Swansea (H), West Ham (A), Huddersfield (H), Brighton (H), Southampton (A)

#1 Most Points

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City - Premier League
Manchester City could break the 100-point barrier

Current record: 95

City's tally so far: 87

Probability of breaking the record: High

Chelsea's 2004/05 season was memorable for many reasons. It not only announced Jose Mourinho's arrival in England but also that of Roman Abramovich and the advent of money in England's top flight. 29 wins and 8 draws saw them win 95 points in all.

City have gone down a similar road having spent more than any other team in recent years. And Pep Guardiola took a season to get going before he developed a style of play his entire squad was comfortable with.

So far, City have 28 wins and 3 draws. Judging by their opponents, City could easily break the record. All five teams are in the bottom half of the table. They need a minimum of three wins to break the record.
