Manchester City put Bournemouth to the sword on Saturday afternoon in a Premier League meeting to go top of the table.
Tottenham can regain top spot with a win over Chelsea on Monday evening but Man City are still favourites to lift the title and can be backed at 4/9 with bet365 to do so.
Manchester City close to making history
On the back of putting six goals past Bournemouth, it has been revealed that Manchester City are close to making top-flight history.
Manchester City have now won 22 consecutive home matches in all competitions, the second-longest run in history by an English top-flight side, behind a 24-game streak by Sunderland between December 1890 and April 1892.
Man City’s next three home PL matches come vs Liverpool, Tottenham and Crystal Palace so if they beat the record, they will have certainly earned it.
Pep Guardiola also spoke after the match and was quick to highlight the quality of squad depth at his disposal: “Ruben [Dias] is so important, Josko [Gvardiol] didn’t play today. And maybe Josko and Ruben are going to play the next game and they have to be there,” the boss told the press in his post-match media briefing.
“Everyone is incredibly involved. And they compete with each other. I want Jack [Grealish] angry. I want him to play good. And [Jeremy] Doku to be angry like he didn’t play the last two games. “This is the way to maintain the consistent level.
“But Jack is back, the way he played in Old Trafford to give us more composure in that position. It was decisive for us.m But we need everyone. A lot of games come. Everyone has to compete. If you don’t play, train better the next day, the moment is coming, when you do this and mentally here, you perform well and when you perform well, we are going to win games and you will be happy, everyone will be happy and this is what you have to do.”
