Our 4-0 win away at Newcastle on Sunday means our lead at the top of the Premier League has been extended to three points, after second-placed Liverpool drew 2-2 at Tottenham.
It was another fine performance from City, who looked thoroughly comfortable throughout.
The victory also saw City set two significant English football records.
We have registered the most top-flight wins in a calendar year. This was our 34th of 2021, which eclipses the previous record of 33 which Liverpool managed under the great Bob Paisley back in 1982.
We now have two more Premier League games – at home to Leicester and away to Brentford – to extend our record further.
And it was our 18th away win in the league this year, more than any other top-flight side has managed in the history of English football. Indeed, our 18 wins means we surpass the previous record of 17 set by Bill Nicholson’s doubling-winning Tottenham side of 1960-61, widely recognised as one of the finest this country has ever seen.
Pep and his team continue to move the dial.
After the game, we heard from Pep and Riyad Mahrez, and joining us in the Matchday Live studio were Joleon Lescott and Paul Dickov.
