Highest victory points threshold: City would have to expand the existing edge of 16 points to surpass Manchester UTD lead of 18 points. This challenging but still possible and the outcome of the match with Manchester will be critical in allowing this to occur or not.
Biggest home victories: City can only reach the existing record of 18 points gained by Manchester UTD and City, after playing against Everton in the starting home match of the season.
Highest no. of away victories: City has managed to score 12 games their way during this season and 4 games are remaining to play away from their home ground. If they managed to win these 4 matches, they can even pound Chelsea’s lead score of 15 points.
