Must read

The 2018/19 English Premier League came to an end as Manchester City held off Liverpool to win the Premier League title on the final day.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a detailed statistical look back at the season…

98 – Points for champions City. It is the second highest points in the league. 100 points for Manchester City still the highest ever in the league.

14 – City’s winning run to close the season. They will begin next season just four short of their own record, set between August and December 2017.

97- Runners-up Liverpool finished with the Premier League’s highest points total without winning the title, beating Manchester United’s record of 89 set when they finished behind City on goal difference in 2011-12. It was also the third highest total in Premier League history, behind City this season and last.

1 – The winning margin was a solitary point for the fifth time in Premier League history, in addition to City’s goal difference success.

3 – Three players have shared the Golden Boot award after Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalled Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane as the top scorers in the 2018/19 Premier League, on 22 goals each. It is the first time three players have shared the award since Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Michael Owen and Dwight Yorke in 1998/99.

15- Chelsea’s Eden Hazard led the league in assists with 15.

Trent Alexander-Arnold with 12 assists shared third place on that list as Liverpool’s first-choice full-backs both reached double figures, with Andy Robertson on 11.

16 – Huddersfield were relegated with the third-lowest points tally in Premier League history with 16.

1,072 – There were a record number of goals for a 38-game Premier League season.

11 – City’s Sergio Aguero matched Alan Shearer’s record for Premier League hat-tricks, scoring three this season against Huddersfield, Arsenal and Chelsea.

100 – Mike Dean became the first referee to show a century of red cards in the Premier League.

6- There were only six in-season managerial changes – Fulham (twice), Southampton, Manchester United, Huddersfield and Leicester. That matched the 2009-10 season for the lowest total since the five in 2005-06.
