City have set a new English football record for the most top-flight wins in a calendar year.

Our 4-0 victory away at Newcastle United on Sunday was our 34th of 2021, which eclipses the 33 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.

The win at St James’ Park also saw City chalk up another significant milestone.

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.

City are top of the Premier League table after 18 games of the season - and our tally of 106 goals in 2021 is the most ever scored by a team in a calendar year in the Premier League era. 

Congratulations to Pep, his staff and players on their continued excellence.
