  • Pep Guardiola revels in record-breaking Manchester City win

Bony has played ten games this season for 19th placed Swansea City and will be looking for his seventh start when they lock horns with table toppers, City. "In history there were incredible things like Liverpool in the 80s and Manchester United with Sir Alex Ferguson or Chelsea with Jose Mourinho".

"There have been wonderful teams in history", Guardiola said. But we are the first ones to win 15 in a row.

Asked what the record means, Guardiola told reporters: "A lot".

"This record will be broken, but it will not be easy because (to win) 15 games in a row in the Premier League is so complicated". Of course we were lucky in some moments and we scored in the last minutes, I remember at Bournemouth for example.

"We were passive, not aggressive, (showed) too much respect".

The South Wales side, who remain the only side in the league to not yet hit double figures in the goals for column of the table, ended a run of seven games to move to within a point of safety.

Ultimately, neither team played their best soccer, none of the three goals were anything to fawn over, and at no point did City or United comprehensively dominate their opponent.

Ryan Shawcross, who's own goal opened the scoring bagged a consolation for the visitors with the result already way beyond doubt. Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling have contributed eight goals apiece.


"We started okay, we were in it, but the goal is really disappointing, easy cross, centre-half has nearly ducked out of it, keeper rooted to line, but then our reaction (wasn't good)".

A David Silva brace - with one coming either side of half-time - and a Kevin De Bruyne free kick all before the hour mark along with a fourth from Sergio Aguero late on allowed Man City to cruise to the record-setting win.

"To be on the receiving end of that was very hard", said Clement, whose team remain at the foot of the table.

"But they are a really great side - one of the best I have ever come across". It was a comfortable victory for them.

The hosts had taken an early lead through Joselu before goals either side of half time from Riyad Mahrez and Demarai Gray turned the game on its head.

"There are a lot more tasks waiting for us, especially I think in December because of all the games".

"When he left here he did well, he went to Manchester City but didn't get to the level he would have liked same at stoke so he's got a point to prove to people. They are a really, really top side".
