Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are edging closer to Bayern Munich’s staggering record as the only team with 23 consecutive wins in the last 100 years.
Following an uncharacteristic start of three draws, two defeats and a string of laboured 1-0 wins in 13 games this season, City got dismissed as possible league and UEFA Champions League contenders.
However, nobody saw the bullet train that was coming after a 2-0 loss against Tottenham Hotspur away in London.
Pep’s side went unbeaten in seven games, though it included three draws… until the wheels began to truly roll with 20 straight wins through the Premier League, League Cup, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League.
