Manchester City are being hailed as one of the greatest Premier League sides, after Pep Guardiola's side reached 100 points last year to land his first title in England. The Sky Blues had a remarkable season and smashed 11 Premier League records on their way to glory. However the debate will continue if they were the greatest team ever in the Premier League, particularly against the achievements of Arsenal’s “Invincibles” in 2003-2004 and the Manchester United side that won the league in their treble season (1998-1999).
With the Premier League era now 27 years old, there have been multiple teams who have done exceptionally well in a season and accumulated an incredible number of points during their title winning campaign. Here’s a look at the top ten teams with the most points in a Premier League season :-

The Stamford Bridge outfit also won the League Cup that season, making it two trophies for the Portuguese tactician in his first year at the club.
3. Chelsea- 93 points, 2016-2017
After a disastrous season under Jose Mourinho, where they finished mid table and dropped out of Europe, Antonio Conte brought great success to the club again by winning the title. It was a season where Chelsea went on to win 30 games, drawing only three. The Italian's revolutionary 3-4-3 system brought about the change in fortunes for the Blues, and was the reason they won the title comfortably.
4. Manchester United- 91 points, 1999-2000
Manchester United were coming back from one of their greatest seasons, having won the treble the previous year. But that did not mean Sir Alex Ferguson would let his team relax. They concentrated on the offense in the 1999-2000 season as well, winning 28 games and losing just three. While it may not have been as high as that of the previous year, winning the league yet again and scoring 91 points made the team and their fans happy.
5. Chelsea-91 points, 2005-2006
In Jose Mourinho's second season in charge of Chelsea, the Blues were dominant in the first half of the season and won 20 of their first 22 games. In fact the team would have had more points on board if they hadn't faltered at the fag end of the season, dropping points after having already sealed the title. They had a great chance to reach 100 points then, but they dropped the ball on that objective. They won a total of 29 games, losing five and drawing the rest.
