Man City break all-time Liverpool record with latest comfortable win

Manchester City have this evening etched their name indellibly into the history books of English football, owing to the clubs downing of Newcastle United.

Cancelo amongst the goals

Pep Guardiolas men marked their return to action a short time ago.

After maintaining their advantage atop the Premier League table owing to a 7-0 drubbing of Leeds United in midweek, the Sky Blues made the trip to St. James Park, no doubt confident in their chances of making it two straightforward wins on the bounce.

And, when all was said and done, this is precisely what City managed.

A predictably dominant display ultimately culminated in the visitors emerging on the right side of a 4-0 scoreline on Tyneside.

Joao Cancelo proved the star of the show, adding to his early assist with the below-linked solo special, before further strikes from Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling over the course of the 2nd-half added some gloss to the scoreline.

Guardiolas record-breakers

As alluded to above, though, their latest triumph on Sunday did not only prove significant in guiding Manchester City, for the time being at least, a full four points clear at the Premier Leagues summit.

In addition, it saw the Citizens secure for themselves a remarkable piece of football history.

As confirmed on the back of the full-time whistle at St. James, Pep Guardiolas men have now racked up a hefty 34 league wins to this point in 2021.

This marks the most ever secured by a club in the top-flight of English football over the course of a calendar year, surpassing Liverpools previous benchmark of 33, set all the way back in 1982:
