The 2018–19 season is Manchester City's 117th season of competitive football, 90th season in the top division of English football and 22nd season in the Premier League since it was first created.[1] In addition to the Premier League, the club competed in the FA Cup, UEFA Champions League, FA Community Shield, and EFL Cup; for the Champions League, it is their eighth consecutive season competing in the tournament. The season covers the period from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019.

During this season, City completed an unprecedented domestic treble. Apart from winning all three of the major English football tournaments, they also won the Community Shield, the first time any team has ever held all four of England's primary football trophies.

Season summary[edit]

City maintained their free scoring form under manager Pep Guardiola in the 2018-19 season, and became the first club in Europe's top leagues to pass 100 goals scored on 20 January 2019 when Danilo scored the first goal in City's 3–0 victory at Huddersfield Town.[2]

City went on to break their own record for a top flight English club for goals scored in all competitions in a season. Leroy Sane's goal in City's 2-0 win at Old Trafford against Manchester United on 24 April 2019 overtook the previous record tally of 156 which was established by Manuel Pellegrini’s City side back in their title-winning 2013/14 campaign.[3] By the end of the season the team had amassed a total of 169 goals scored.

On 24 February, City won their sixth League Cup title when they beat Chelsea 4–3 on penalties after a goalless draw over 120 minutes at Wembley Stadium.[4]

The 2018-19 Premier League title race was one of the closest contests of the Premier League era. City and Liverpool exchanged their leads 32 times over the season, in part due to fixture rearrangements for EFL and FA Cup matches and television demands. The two title contenders jointly amassed a combined total of 195 points which at the time was the highest combined total in English top flight history.[5]

On 12 May, City won their final league game of the league season 4-1 away at Brighton and Hove Albion to retain the Premier League title. In doing so they matched their own record for 32 wins over a single season. They had to win their final 14 consecutive league games to hold off the challenge of Liverpool; who themselves had ended their season with 9 consecutive wins [6]

One week later, on 18 May, City defeated Watford 6-0 at Wembley to win the FA Cup and complete an unprecedented English domestic treble and clean sweep of the major honors in English football. It was also City's first ever league and FA Cup double and their 6th FA Cup title overall. The 6-0 scoreline was also the joint largest winning margin in the history of the FA Cup Final and the largest for any final in the competition since 1903.[7]

This final win of the season was Manchester City's 50th in all competitions overall, and another unprecedented record for the team.[8]
