Are Manchester City on course for the record Premier League points total?

Manchester City's 'Fergie time' boast

Manchester City's third successive late victory "shows what we are", manager Pep Guardiola said after David Silva's 83rd-minute victor saw his side equal a Premier League-record 13th successive triumph. It's a big victory.

"We knew we had to be patient, we came out flying in the second half, we tried to explain to the boys we still had time and then we started to relax a bit more and found those spaces". We didn't have any rhythm because (West Ham goalkeeper) Adrian was taking 30 seconds every time (with the ball). "We played against a really good side and I thought for long periods we frustrated them". It was massive. They played 10 players inside the box, it was nearly impossible.

Guardiola has favoured a lone striker this season, with either Sergio Aguero or Gabriel Jesus deployed at the head of their fluid, interchangeable attacking system.

But even though they so almost drew all four games, the determination they have shown to grind out wins on each occasion suggests title-winning form. You have to try to solve it [when teams pack the defense]. Kevin de Bruyne playing as the holding midfielder gave us the tempo.

Star striker Sergio Aguero was substituted late on against West Ham having only taken two shots on goal for the match, yet Guardiola claims a recent dip in form is partly due to his recovery from a previous auto accident, coupled with more stringent opposition marking.

"We're gutted that we lost it", Moyes said.

"I would like [if] Paul could play against us - I like to face the team with the best players possible".

However, having conceded another goal from a set-piece against West Ham, Guardiola expects another aerial bombardment from United next week. "They just want to defend - I understand, I am not judging, don't misunderstand me - but it is hard, they use the counter-attack and set pieces", Guardiola added. We spoke a lot about defending set-pieces but they are taller.
