Manchester City Wins Premier League Title +Video

Manchester City are champions of England yet again. A 4-1 win at Brighton meant Liverpoolís 2-0 victory against Wolves went in vain. Meanwhile, Arsenal finally managed to break their poor run away from home with a 3-1 win at Burnley, while Manchester United sunk to another low, falling 2-0 at Old Trafford to already relegated Cardiff.

Here are the best numbers from a thrilling final day of the 2018-19 English Premier League season.

The Champions

1 - Pep Guardiola is the first manager to win back-to-back league titles in three of Europeís top five divisions (Spain, Germany, England).

3 - Only three managers have won the Premier League in back-to-back seasons - Sir Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, and now, Guardiola.

8 - This was the eighth time the Premier League title was decided on the final day of the season, with Manchester City winning it on three of those occasions (2011-12, 2013-14 and 2018-19).

14 - This is only the third time in history an English top-flight team has won 14 successive games. Manchester City have done it twice; in fact, they won 18 consecutive games in 2017.

4 - Vincent Kompany is tied second for the most PL titles won as a captain with 4, along with Roy Keane. Only John Terry has more, with 5.

18 - David Silvaís assist for Sergio Agueroís goal was his 18th for the Argentine. Only three pairs have connected more often in the Premier League - Frank Lampard to Diddier Drogba (24), Darren Anderton to Teddy Sheringham (20) and Steve McManaman to Robbie Fowler (20).

195 - City and Liverpool combined to win 195 points in 2018-19; the most accumulated by the top two in a single English top-flight season.

The Runners-up

Oh, Liverpool. Leading Manchester City by 10 points on Christmas Day (City did have a game in hand), they once again lost out on the last day. In fact, the last three times a Premier League team has been top on Christmas and not won the league, it has been Liverpool at the receiving end (2009, 2014 and 2019).

1 - Liverpool became the first team in top-flight history to win as many as 30 games and 97 points in a season and not win the title. No side has ever previously lost just one game in a top-flight season and not won the title.

In fact, Liverpoolís tally of 97 points would have been enough to win the Premier League in all but one of the previous 26 seasons of the competition.

12 - Trent Alexander-Arnold provided 12 assists in the Premier League in 2018-19, the most by a defender in a single campaign in the competition.

97 - No team has recorded more points than Liverpoolís 97 in a losing cause in the history of Europeís top five leagues. Their tally this season beats Real Madridís 96 from 2009-10.

The manager who beat both those sides? Pep Guardiola.

The Rest

1072 - There have been 1072 goals scored this Premier League season, the most in the history of the competition.

1 - Arsenal kept just one league clean sheet away from home this season, their fewest in a single top-flight campaign since 1967-68.

2 - Nathaniel Mendez-Laing is only the second player from a newly promoted team to score a brace away at Old Trafford in the Premier League after Louis Saha for Fulham in August 2001.

15 - Excluding penalties, no team conceded more goals from set pieces than Everton (15) in the Premier League this season.

 

22 - Three African players will share the Premier League Golden Boot for the first time after Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all ended with 22 goals.

36 - Glenn Murray scored 36% of Brightonís Premier League goals overall (25/69), the biggest proportion of any teamís goals in the competition netted by a player.

54 - David De Gea conceded 54 goals this season. Thatís the most he has ever conceded in a league season in his career.

2 - Manchester United only kept two home clean sheets in the Premier League this season, their fewest at Old Trafford in a top-flight campaign since 1962-63.

7 - Despite their loss to Liverpool, Wolverhampton Wanderers finished seventh, their best top-flight finish since 1979-80, when they were sixth in the old First Division. In fact, this is the best finish by a newly promoted team in the Premier League since Ipswich Town finished fifth in 2001.
