Guardiola tells fans Man City won't stop after record-breaking win

And four unanswered goals saw them set a new Premier League record of 15 consecutive wins.

City have ridden a record 14-game winning streak to establish an 11-point lead at the top of Premier League and have been drawn against Swiss side Basel in the last 16 of the Champions League after winning their group.

A brace by David Silva and a goal each by Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne helped the away team secure the win.

The England victor has repeated this trick to keep City on track more recently with late interventions in wins by the same margin over Huddersfield Town and Southampton.


Liverpool had a late goal disallowed against West Brom, with Dominic Solanke ruled to have touched the ball with his hand after chesting down a cross from fellow substitute Joe Gomez. Watford were also thumped 6-0 at Vicarage Road during this period. If we win the title it will just be a record and this record will be broken, but of course it will not be easy.

Sources have told ESPN FC that City's celebrations after their 2-1 derby win were "very vocal" and accompanied by loud music, prompting a confrontation between players and staff from both clubs.

"Normally you can decrease a little bit your concentration, but when you can do it 15 times in a row it means that every single day you are there".

Swansea, who are bottom with 12 points, ended a seven-game run without a victory when they beat visiting fellow strugglers West Bromwich Albion in their last game on Saturday. To get a sense of how this atmosphere played in the minds of the away team, you'd need clips of some of the dozen or so curiously, uncharacteristically poor passing errors City players' nerves seemed to force them into. There were some incredible teams.


"Considering we have a lot of games in our legs, a demanding game at Old Trafford three days ago, we were solid, we were serious and we made a good performance", Guardiola said. We're going to see what will happen in January.

Jurgen Klopp recalled Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino following Sunday's 1-1 derby draw with Everton and thought Dominic Solanke had poached a late victor, only for the goal to be ruled out for handball.

"But we are starting the game 0-0".

Wayne Rooney took advantage of an error from goalkeeper Karl Darlow as Everton won 1-0 at Newcastle.
