Premier League Review: Matchday Sixteen

Premier League Review: Matchday Sixteen”

Manchester City have set a new Premier League record of 15-consecutive wins after a 4-0 victory over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

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

Guardiola declared City's record was even more remarkable given the quality of English football over the years.

Playmaker David Silva scored twice, with further strikes from Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero as Pep Guardiola's side picked up from their 2-1 win at Manchester United weekend with an emphatic victory at the Liberty Stadium to surpass the mark of 14 successive wins set by Arsenal in 2002.

"I am 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", said the City manager, whose side remain 11 points clear. But David Silva made no mistake on 53 minutes as he added his side's third goal, exchanging passes superbly and ghosting between two home defenders before lifting a shot over the advancing Fabianski.

Hauled over the coals for his vehicle crash display in the Manchester derby, Romelu Lukaku scored the game's only goal as United returned to winning ways against Bournemouth.

Asked if Kompany will be fit to face Swansea, Guardiola said: "No, but I think it will be less than we expect, so hopefully it could be in the short-term future".

"We are so demanding for our players".

This was one of City's most dominant displays yet, highlighting the gulf between the league's first and last teams.

"Of course that will not make sense if we do not win the title - it will be just a record then. If people are happy watching us that is the best gift". We are so happy, we played really well - especially after the Old Trafford game.

The South Wales side, who remain the only side in the league to not yet hit double figures in the goals for column of the table, ended a run of seven games to move to within a point of safety.

Bournemouth and Stoke City are level on sixteen points with the Cherries securing a 2-2 draw with bottom-of-the-table Crystal Palace while the Potters were, as they usually are of late, thumped by Tottenham Hotspur.

Wayne Rooney scored Everton's goal in a 1-0 win at Newcastle as the Merseyside club continued its resurgence under new manager Sam Allardyce, with the team winning three of his four matches in charge.
