The all-time Premier League table since the inception of the EPL has been compiled.

Manchester City recently cemented their place as one of the biggest English clubs of recent years following their triumph.

Pep Guardiola's men made history by becoming only the first club to win four consecutive Premier League titles.

The Citizens were embroiled in a hot race for the crown with Arsenal during the just concluded 2023/24 campaign.

However, the Manchester club eventually emerged victors after racking up 91 points, two more than the Gunners, who had to settle for a second-place finish.

While Arsenal staged a brave title fight to take the race down to the wire, City's journey to glory all but cemented their dominance.

For context, Guardiola has won six EPL titles since he joined the Etihad club in the summer of 2016.

However, despite their impressive run over the recent years, City still trails the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool in the list of clubs with the most points since the start of the Premier League in 1992/93.

Manchester United tops all-time EPL table

United's recent struggles notwithstanding, the club still tops the all-time EPL table.

The Red Devils finished eighth this season under Erik ten Hag, managing just 60 points in the process.

Their eighth-place finish is a drop from last season when they finished third with 75 points, behind Arsenal and City.

According to numbers crunched by GiveMeSport, the Old Trafford club have racked up an impressive 2,501 points since the start of the league.

Of course, much of this success can be attributed to Sir Alex Ferguson, who dominated the English topflight during his lengthy reign as United boss. The Scotsman won a record 13 EPL titles.

Meanwhile, the ten Hag-tutored side have played 1,228 EPL games and boast with the most wins (744), with 269 other matches ending in draws.

Arsenal are placed second in the all-time table with 2,314 points earned from 673 wins and 295 draws recorded in the 1,228 games played.

Liverpool, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur are among the other teams that have played all 1,228 games since the league started three decades ago.

The three teams are placed third, fourth, and fifth, respectively, in the standings, with City sitting sixth, with 1,809 points.

Why Manchester City ranks poorly

The Citizens' somewhat poor ranking is due to the fact that they have played 194 games less than the top five ranked teams.

This is because, unlike the other five teams, the Guardiola-led side were twice relegated from the Premier League, per StatMuse.

Their first relegation came during the 1995/96 season.

Incredibly, this was also their worst period, as they dropped even further to the third tier two seasons later.

While they eventually regained promotion to the top flight, they found themselves in a similar situation during the 2000/01 season.
