Which records have Manchester City broken this season?

Manchester City sent more records tumbling on Wednesday

Manchester City have long since wrapped up the Premier League title - but their hunger for records continued until the final kick of the final day.

Pep Guardiola's men passed more landmarks with their 1-0 win at Southampton on Sunday, becoming the first team to achieve 100 points in the top flight of English football.

Here, we pick out the records City have smashed this season - and the ones they can still break...

RECORDS SMASHED

CONSECUTIVE PREMIER LEAGUE WINS

CITY TOTAL: 18

PREVIOUS RECORD: 13

From Raheem Sterling's last-gasp winner at Bournemouth on August 26 until City's 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace on New Year's Eve, they won 18 Premier League games in a row, demolishing the 13-game record set by Chelsea in 2016/17. The streak also beat Arsenal's 14-game run of wins which was split across the end of the 2001/02 season and the start of 2002/03.
