Manchester City v Watford - Premier League
Will Manchester City win the league by a huge margin?

The current season's title race seems to be already over as Manchester City hold a comfortable 15-point advantage at the top.

Pep Guardiola's team were on a 18 game winning streak before they drew against Crystal Palace and are yet to be beaten in the league as the Citizens continue to assert their dominance every match-week.

However, the Premier League has witnessed several seasons where the hunt for the crown ended much earlier than fans anticipated.

Here are few of those campaigns where the Champions dominated the league completely:

#5 2015/16 season - 10 points gap

Leicester City v Everton - Premier League
Claudio Ranieri lifts the Premier League trophy after a cinderella-story season with Leicester City

In a fairy tale Premier League season, Leicester City surprised everyone by winning the title comprehensively by a margin of 10 points in the table.

The Foxes lost only three games in the league - twice against Arsenal and once against Liverpool as they remarkably dominated the league during the season.

Claudio Ranieri's side stuck to the top-three places in the table till the mid-season, eventually grabbing the top spot in game-week 23 and never dropping down a place till the end of the season.

In an exceptional season for the Underdogs, the top sides failed miserably among which Chelsea had their poorest season as the defending champions finished awfully at the tenth position in the table.
