“Manchester City have struck the post or crossbar on nine occasions”

City romped home to the title in devastating fashion last term, scoring a record 106 goals as they became the first team to notch 100 points.

And they are showing no signs of slowing down in the defence of their crown.

Guardiola’s men have already bagged 33 goals in their first 11 matches of 2018/19, earning them nine wins and two draws that sees them top the table.

However, they also sit top of the woodwork charts – as City have struck the post or crossbar on nine occasions.

So which other sides have been unfortunate so far in the campaign?
