Celebrating Beautiful Football : Weâ€™ve launched an online hub dedicated to celebrating the wonderful football Pep Guardiolaâ€™s team have played this year en route to winning the Premier League and Carabao Cup.
They report: “If there is one statistic that outlines just how dominant City were over the course of the season, it’s this one…
“City were only behind for 153 minutes across the entirety of the campaign.
“City only trailed for a period of time equal to just over one and a half matches.
“Everton, Bournemouth, Huddersfield, West Ham, Liverpool and Manchester United were the six teams to have led City at any stage in a match, with only Liverpool, United and Everton going on to get anything out of those games (Liverpool and United winning and Everton drawing).”
That’s all for today, we’ll be back same time, same place on Wednesday!
