Manchester City Stats History
In 1880, St. Mark’s Church in Manchester formed a team that eventually became Ardwick F.C. and later Manchester City F.C. Now one of the most successful clubs in England, Manchester City joined the football league in 1892. Man City played at Maine Road from 1923-2003 but now play at the Etihad Stadium in East Manchester.
Manchester City’s famous sky blue shirts were first worn in 1894 and ten years later, they won their first major trophy. City won the FA Cup final 1-0 vs. Bolton Wanderers in 1904 and first won the league in 1937.
One of the most successful periods in the club’s history was during the late 60’s and early 70’s under Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison. During that time, Man City won the First Division title, FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup Winners’ Cup.
Losing the FA Cup final to Tottenham in 1981 marked the beginning of Manchester City’s long decline. They bounced around the first and second divisions for much of the 80’s and 90’s and were relegated to the third tier for the first time in 1998.

Manchester City F.C Team Records
Man City returned to the Premier League in 2001 and have been in England’s top tier ever since. Sheikh Mansour bought Man City in 2008 and the most successful period in the club’s history followed.
After considerable investment in personnel, the Citizens won the FA Cup in 2011. The next year, the title race came down to the final day and Sergio Aguero’s extra time winner vs. QPR handed City their first Premier League title. Under Manuel Pellegrini, City also won the title two years later. Sergio Aguero was at the top of the Manchester City stats during the 2010’s, with a whopping 173 Premier League goals.
Under Pep Guardiola, City have become one of the best teams in the world. They won the Premier League title in 2018, becoming the first team to reach 100 points in a season. One of the most historical Manchester City team stats is their domestic treble of the EPL, FA Cup and League Cup in 2018-19. City are the only English team ever to win the domestic treble.
City also won Premier League titles in 2021 and 2022 and reached the Champions League final for the first time in 2021.
As one of the best English teams, Manchester City are typically involved in multiple concurrent competitions. So, before betting on their EPL odds make sure to check out the latest team news. There’s not much value in taking them to win the league at -175, so the best betting advice would be to stay away until a possible better number as the season progresses.
