Man City became the proud proprietors of a new Premier League record on Wednesday night when a 4-0 drubbing of Swansea saw Pep Guardiola’s men rustle a 15th consecutive win.
The result at the Liberty Stadium saw City set a new outright record after drawing level with Arsenal’s 14-victory run (between February and August of 2002) in their previous outing.
David Silva was his usual instrumental self, continuing his imperious form and ending the evening with another two goals to add to the collection.
The opener came after 26 minutes when Bernardo Silva swept a cross over Swansea’s back-line for the darting David Silva to flick home from close range…
Kevin De Bruyne then doubled City’s advantage just a few minutes later, catching Lukasz Fabianski cold by whipping an angled freekick past him at the near post.
Shortly after the interval, Silva scored again to equal his goal tally from last season (five) some 18 matches early.
After exchanging passes with Raheem Sterling, the man they call ‘El Maga’ went dancing into the penalty area and prodded a prim finish over Fabianski…
Silva has now been involved in 13 goals in 17 Premier League games this season (five goals and eight assists). Integral.
After beavering away all night, Sergio Aguero finally nabbed the goal his industry deserved five minutes from time as the Argentinian striker carved through a tired Swans defence and arrowed a low finish into the far corner…
And with that, City march on. We’re now 17 games into the league season and they’ve only dropped two points so far.
It’s not looking good for everybody else.
