City have equaled their club record of 11 consecutive wins as they beat Burnley 3-0. And on the historic day, Man City Hero Sergio Aguero equals Eric Brook’s all-time Man City record with his 177th goal.
The club previously recorded 11 straight victories under Manuel Pellegrini between the 2014/15 and 2015/16 campaigns.
Aguero opening goal hands City the lead. Aguero goes in search of his 178th City strike but couldn’t find today. Nicolas Otamendi header doubles City lead. But the closing goal of game came from Leroy Sane who gets pass from De Bruyne.
City were far from their attacking best but another fine three points, with three goals scored and a clean sheet means they move five clear of Manchester United, who lost to Huddersfield.
“The record is good if you lift something, titles or a trophy. It means a lot. Of course it is not easy to win 11 in a row, so it’s good,” said Man City boss Pep Guardiola.
