Guardiola: We’ve done something 80s Liverpool, Fergie’s United and Mourinho’s Chelsea didn’t

Pep Guardiola says Manchester City will not stop after becoming the first team in top-flight history to record 15 consecutive wins with their 4-0 drubbing of Swansea City on Wednesday night.

It was another exhilarating display by Pep’s men, with captain David Silva in particular standing out in an outstanding team performance.

And Guardiola is understandably delighted after seeing his men, not for the first time this season, smash a record. One that even some of English football’s greatest teams couldn’t manage.

“I’m so happy because our job depends on if we win, so if we win we are so happy in our lives and in our jobs.

“In history there were amazing things like Liverpool in the 80s and [Manchester] United with Alex Ferguson or Chelsea with Jose Mourinho, there were some amazing teams.

“But we are the first ones to win 15 in a row. 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.

“Because 15 games in a row in the Premier League in this period is really complicated. Of course we were lucky in some moments and we scored in the last minutes – I remember at Bournemouth for example.

“But it means a lot in the faith and desire to win again, and again and again.”

City have a big lead at the summit of the Premier League, but if their 2011/12 title win proved anything, as they overturned a huge United lead, a bit of complacency and things can quickly change. And Pep knows his Shark Team must not rest on what they have achieved so far.

“We are going to try not to stop to show that feeling to the fans, so when they watch us they know the guys want to win again and again and again. We want to try to maintain it as much as possible.”
