Man City set new club record with win over Leeds


 

The latest comfortable three-point haul secured by Manchester City on Saturday has since resulted in Pep Guardiola's troops etching their names ever further into club folklore.

The Sky Blues, of course, were back in action a short time ago, making the trip to Elland Road for a crunch Premier League meeting with relegation-battling Leeds United.

And, when all was said and done, City made short work of their hosts on the day, to emerge on the right side of a dominant 4-0 scoreline courtesy of goals from all of Rodri, Nathan Ake, Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho.

Whilst their latest attacking endeavours will therefore no doubt go on to take centre stage in the headlines on the back of the Citizens' rout in Yorkshire, in fact, it is is the recent defensive efforts put forth by Pep Guardiola's outfit which has this evening seen them secure a place in club history.

As per statisticians Opta, City have now rattled off five successive clean sheets on the road in the Premier League.

This marks the most ever racked up by a Sky Blues outfit, a testament to just how well balanced the club's on-pitch setup truly is at present.

Back on top

Turning attentions back towards the Premier League table, City's triumph at Leeds has of course seen the Citizens climb back to the division's summit.

This comes after Liverpool momentarily leapfrogged the reigning champions courtesy of a hard-fought downing of Newcastle earlier in the day.

With just four games to play, the title race looks set to come down to the wire...
