Pep Guardiola set another new Premier League record in Man City’s win over Forest

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has, on Saturday, etched his name ever further into the history books of English football.

Guardiola, of course, guided his City side back into action a short time ago.

In the midst of a flawless start to the campaign, the Sky Blues welcomed Nottingham Forest to The Etihad, hopeful of making it seven wins on the spin across all competitions.

And, when all was said and done, this is precisely what the day’s hosts went on to do.

Despite Rodri’s needless 2nd-half dismissal, early goals on the part of Phil Foden and Erling Haaland proved enough to guide City to the right side of a 2-0 result.

And, as alluded to above, in the process, boss Guardiola secured for himself yet more history.

This saw the reigning champions join an elite club of just sides to have notched wins in all of their first six games of an English top-flight campaign, in the Premier League era.

Guardiola, though, is the only manager to have achieved as much twice, after also doing so back in 2016/17.
