Manchester City can rub salt in Manchester United’s wounds as ANOTHER record beckons

Manchester City can break three Premier League records with a positive result against Huddersfield Town on Sunday – most points in a season (95, City are on 93), most goals scored in a season (103, City are on 102) and most wins in a season (City are now joint-record holders on 30, one more makes them outright holders).

All three of those records are held by Chelsea, but Manchester United are also at risk from this dominant City side that has been breaking and remaking records for months now.

Manchester United’s shock defeat to Brighton on Friday night means City remain 16 points clear of their neighbours, but with a game in hand.

And the biggest points winning margin in Premier League history is 18 – achieved by Manchester United in the 1999/00 season. That means a win over Huddersfield would move City 19 points clear and needing to only match Manchester United’s remaining results to set a new record.

City have three fixtures to go, two of them at home. After hosting Huddersfield on Sunday, the Blues play a rearranged fixture against United’s conquerors from Friday night, Brighton, before travelling to Southampton on the last day of the season.

The Southampton game could see TWO more Chelsea records remade: the most away wins in a season (City are now joint-record holders on 15, with one away day to go) and the most away points in a season (48, City are on 47).

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City team of 2017/18 are destined to go down as one of the Premier League’s all-time greats, but smashing these records could truly make them the greatest side in the league’s history.
