Manchester City’s ‘Centurions’ became associated with smashing Premier League and other records last season as they collected a league and cup double in a campaign like no other.
It’s a whole new season now with fresh challenges ahead, but another record fell on Saturday afternoon at the Etihad Stadium when Pep Guardiola’s men dispatched of Burnley in a 5-0 win.
Few will remember this record like the others set by City’s record-breakers, but today’s win set a new Premier League record for games unbeaten in the traditional 3 o’clock kick-off spot.
Of their last 34 Premier League fixtures starting at 3pm, City have won 30, drawn 4 and lost 0.
City’s next two home matches in the league see them host Southampton and Manchester United, and they will hope to extend their new record and in doing so avenge the home defeat to United from last season.
