The 1990–91 season was Manchester City's second consecutive season in the top tier of English football, the Football League First Division.

Season summary[edit]

Howard Kendall built a strong Manchester City side that spent the first few months of the season near the top of the table, but left in November, with City in fifth, to return to Everton, justifying his move by claiming that Manchester City was his affair but Everton was his marriage.[2] Midfielder Peter Reid was named as caretaker before being appointed permanent City manager; he led the Mancunians to fifth place.

Irish striker Niall Quinn was City's top scorer with 21 goals in all competitions. He was named the club's Player of the Year.

Kit[edit]

City's kit was manufactured by English company Umbro and sponsored by Japanese electronics manufacturer Brother.
