  • 16 – With their 3-1 triumph over Spurs at Wembley – and United’s home loss to West Brom – Man City are now16 points clear at the top of the log and pursuing down the Premier League’s biggest title-winning margin of 18, which was set by Sir Alex-Ferguson Red Devils in 1999-00.
  • 240 – City’s 240 day add up to at the top of the league in 2017-18 is just one day less than Manchester United spending at the top of the Premier League log (in season) since Sergio Aguero’s goal won the title in May 2012 (241).

  • 15 – Kevin De Bruyne, a solid contender for Player of the Year award, has been a relentless and unstoppable creative force in his third season with the club, contributing an awesome Premier League best 15 assists in 33 appearances.

  • 18 – City run of 18 consecutive wins – from beating Bournemouth 2-1 on August 26 to a 1-0 triumph at Newcastle United on December 27 – set another Premier League record.
