Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, on Saturday, secured for themselves yet another piece of noteworthy club history.
City, for those not aware, marked their return to action a short time ago.
Fresh off a Premier League opening day drubbing of Burnley, the Sky Blues set about making it six points from six, at the expense of Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United.

A solitary goal proved all that was needed to put Newcastle to the sword, netted by Julian Alvarez in emphatic fashion just beyond the half-hour mark:
And, as alluded to above, in the process, Guardiola’s record-breaking City side etched their names ever further into the history books on the blue half of Manchester.
As revealed in the aftermath of Sunday’s Etihad clash, this evening’s marked the 17th successive home victory secured by the Citizens across all competitions, dating back to last season.
This is the most ever managed by a Man City outfit, across the club’s storied 140-year history.
