As a result of a dramatic 3-2 comeback victory over Aston Villa on the final day in May, Manchester City has now won four Premier League titles in the last five years.
As in 2018/19, Pep Guardiola’s side pipped Liverpool at the final hurdle with two goals from Ilkay Gundogan.
With Erling Haaland’s arrival in Manchester and Darwin Nunez’s arrival on Merseyside, Liverpool should again pose the main challenge to Guardiola’s team.

Champions League, FA Cup, and Carabao Cup participation for Man City
There is no Premier League team that has remained unbroken in Europe’s top competition for that long, and City will begin their 12th consecutive campaign in the Champions League. In 2021/22, however, they were disappointed by a dramatic semifinal defeat to eventual winners Real Madrid, and their wait for a first continental title since the 1969/70 European Cup Winners’ Cup continued.
Due to Champions League participation, City will enter the Carabao Cup in the third round, hoping to reclaim the trophy they won four consecutive seasons before West Ham beat them on penalties in the Round of 16.
Among Guardiola’s achievements, he has only one FA Cup to his name, which was won as part of the domestic treble he won during the 2018/19 season. In the third round of the Premier League trophy competition, City will be starting their quest for glory in the same way as all of their Premier League contemporaries.

Predictions & odds for Man City in the Premier League
City, who have won four of the past five titles, will be expected to retain their crown and match Manchester United’s five-out-of-six title run from 1995/96 to 2000/01.
This season would be elevated if Guardiola finally won his third Champions League title as a coach.

Here is a list of Man City best and worst finishes in the Premier League
After Sergio Aguero’s memorable last-gasp strike to secure Premier League glory in 2011/12, City won six of the 11 titles on offer in the past six seasons, with one of those winning titles masterminded by Roberto Mancini and the other by Manuel Pellegrini, respectively, prior to the arrival of Pep Guardiola.
Statistically, one of the best seasons in this period came in 2017/18, when Gabriel Jesus scored a late winner against Southampton on the final day of the season to ensure that City became the first team to record 100 points in a single Premier League season. There was also a competition record of 19 points between them and Manchester United in second place, a gap that was also a record for the competition.
There was a time when things were not as they are now, of course. In the Premier League era, City have been relegated twice, the first time in 1995/96 when they lost on goal difference on the final day of the season. It was already sealed by that point in 2000/01 that the Blues’ fate was sealed. Despite finishing 18th in the Premier League five years earlier, Joe Royle’s team only collected 34 points for the season – City’s lowest point total in a Premier League campaign.
