Manchester City is currently active in the FA Cup (semi-final - last game). In contrast, the club were eliminated in the final against Chelsea FC of the EFL Cup, in the group stage of the Premier League despite only 11% of missed matches and in the quarter-finals against Tottenham Hotspur of the UEFA Champions League despite only 17% of failed matches in Group F. In total, 111 goals were scored, 29 goals conceded and 36 out of 44 games triumphed, most of them from the Premier League. The British selection is currently being trained by the Spaniard Pep Guardiola.

The Etihad Stadium in Manchester, the group's home venue, was built to accommodate more than 46700 visitors. Although Manchester City were behind in the first half, they managed to triumph in two such matches against Swansea City and FC Schalke 04 since August. This resulted in an amazing 40% of such games, so that the club apparently works well under load. With a 76.74% success rate in away matches against West Ham United, this opponent appears to be the easiest for the British group. The football team has the greatest success (42/4/6) with the 4-3-3 formation.

The 9-0 win over Burton Albion in the semi-final of the EFL Cup was no big surprise after Manchester City took their biggest possible lead in the first half of the current five-goal season. Although Adrian Bernabe is only 17 years old, the club has an average age of 25. The team's last win against West Ham United was 5 months and 22 days ago. Meanwhile there was only one more match. The last game took place on 24 November 2018. In the 85 games of the last 25 years and more, the team's score against West Ham United is 85. When Manchester City's 27-year-old jersey number 17 Kevin De Bruyne scored from 23m on 22 December 2018 in the 18th group phase match of the Premier League against Crystal Palace, several fans of Crystal Palace were also delighted.

The offside rule (three times in the bottom line) applies more frequently to the team, and on average once less frequently per game to the competitors. It therefore seems too offensive to act. The variety of the kickers kicks rather the right foot. In the UEFA Champions League's first group-phase match against Olympique Lyon on 19 September 2018, Manchester City had the biggest two-match deficit of the current season. With 18 wins, 18 draws and 30 failures against Leicester City in MCI's own arena, this team is the strongest opponent there. The goalkeepers of the club have done an excellent job in securing opposing goal attempts.

Not every opponent was as satisfied as AFC Bournemouth (15/0/0). The most statistically critical competitor is Liverpool FC with 17 wins, 34 stalemates and 48 losses from Manchester City. The distance between Manchester City's smallest (Claudio Gomes) and largest (Arijanet Muric) professional footballer is a spectacular 34 centimetres, while the average is 181 cm. Occasionally it happens that a game is sealed only in the last ten minutes of play, as for example on 2 October 2018 against 1899 Hoffenheim by a goal of the Spanish left foot David Silva 7 minutes before final whistle. The team achieved such a success twice more in the current season. On average, Manchester City fouls nine times per game, so it can be described as rather quiet.

The team have suffered a total of two last quarter failures this season, most recently 106 days ago against Newcastle United after a goal from Matt Ritchie 16 minutes before the final whistle. In the first half, Manchester City tends to secure an early lead. Only 39% of the 18 goal attempts per match (bottom line) finally hit the square as well. The 62kg heavy left foot Riyad Mahrez scored MCI's latest goal of the current season in the 94th minute against Newport County. The most frequent substitutes are goalkeeper Arijanet Muric, striker Philip Foden and defenders Danilo, Vincent Kompany, John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi.

In her final Premier League match against Brighton. In the current season the football team has tried seven different arrangements: 4-2-3-1, 4-1-4-1, 4-1-2-3, 3-4-3, 4-1-3-2, 3-5-2 and 4-3-3. In summary, the club weighs as much as 94 crates of beer, but in terms of mass it weighs as much as 4.7 kg less than the European average. With 62 kg, the Algerian left-foot Riyad Mahrez exceeds this value the most. In the current season, 30 football players have made it to the starting line-up. These include right-back Kyle Walker, left-back Fabian Delph, midfielders Fernandinho, Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva, as well as centre-back Vincent Kompany. In the 24th Premier League group stage match against Newcastle United, Argentinian striker Sergio Agüero set the MCI's fastest goal of the season in just 25 seconds with a pass from David Silva. Manchester City has surrendered a game this season (against Newcastle United) despite superiority in the first half.
