The 2020–21 season was Manchester City Football Club's 119th in existence and the club's 19th consecutive season in the top flight of English football. In addition to the domestic league, Manchester City participates in this season's editions of the FA Cup and the EFL Cup, as well as the UEFA Champions League, entering the competition for the tenth consecutive year, with their best result being a semi-final in 2016. The season covers the period from 16 August 2020 to 30 June 2021.

During this season, City achieved a remarkable winning streak, which ran 82 days from December 2020 to March 2021. During this run, City broke the records for most consecutive wins by a top flight English team in all competitions (21); the most consecutive league wins by a top flight team from the start of a calendar year (13); and equalled their club record for 28 games unbeaten in all competitions.

City also set a record run of consecutive away wins in all competitions for a top flight team (20), a club and English record run of consecutive unbeaten away matches (23) and an English record run of consecutive away league wins (12) during the season.

On 14 April, City advanced to the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in five years, after three consecutive quarter-final eliminations in 2018–20. On 25 April, the Blues defeated Tottenham to win their record-equalling fourth consecutive, and eighth overall, League Cup title.

On 4 May, City reached the UEFA Champions League final for the first time in their history as they defeated Paris Saint-Germain 4–1 on aggregate in the semi-finals.

On 11 May, City were officially confirmed as Premier League champions of England, for the third time in four seasons, following a 2–1 home defeat for second-place Manchester United at the hands of Leicester City.
