Here is a look at the longest winning streaks in Premier League history.
Manchester City: 18 games
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City romped to the Premier League title in 2017-18. On the way to lifting the trophy, they shattered a number of records including most wins (32), most points (100), and of course, most consecutive wins (18). Manchester City were practically unstoppable and during the first half of the season they flexed their Premier League muscles. The Blues’ 18-game win streak took place between August and December. Although they cooled off slightly in January, there was no stopping them from winning the title.

Arsenal: 14 games
Emery’s Arsenal are chasing the 2002 Gunners’ consecutive wins streak. Between February and August 2002, Arsenal compiled 14 straight wins. Unlike Manchester City’s 2017 record, the wins didn’t come in the same season. The Gunners registered 13 straight wins in the Premier League to end the 2001-02 season. When the 2002-03 term kicked off, Arsene Wenger’s men won the first match pushing the winning run to 14. However, a draw in week 2 ended the consecutive wins streak.
Chelsea: 13 games
Antonio Conte’s Chelsea were unstoppable in 2016-17. The Italian’s tactics and man management were spot on in his first season at Stamford Bridge. Of course, it all went horribly wrong in year two, but that first season was brilliant. Conte deployed his favourite 3-4-3 formation in September 2016. Using wing-backs who bombed forward, Chelsea stormed to 13 straight wins in the Premier League between September and January. The Blues finished the season as champions and collected their fifth Premier League title.
Manchester United: 12 games
Manchester United were the Premier League team of the1990s and 2000s, with a lot of emblematic players who will stay in football history. Under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United were the team to beat. Losing didn’t happen often and unfortunately for Manchester United fans, the two decades of success has made it difficult to stomach their current woes. Between March and August 2000, the Red Devils amassed 12 straight wins. It occurred over the final 11 Premier League games of the 1999-2000 season and the first match of the following campaign.
Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City: 11 gamesFour teams have collected 11 straight wins in the Premier League era. Manchester United accomplished the feat during the 2008-09 season. Chelsea did it across two terms with two different managers. Guus Hiddink and Carlo Ancelotti combined for 11 straight wins between April and September 2009. Liverpool secured 11 consecutive wins under Brendan Rodgers during the 2013-14 season. Finally, Manchester City did it between April and September 2015 with Manuel Pellegrini in charge. Of those Premier League winning streaks, only Manchester United and Chelsea with Ancelotti at the helm won the championship.
