Manchester City Set New Premier League Record With Everton Win

Pep Guardiola’s side have won every top-flight match they’ve played in 2021, setting a new mark in the process 

Manchester City set a new Premier League record on Wednesday, as their 3-1 victory at Everton saw them reach 10 straight wins to begin 2021. 

No Premier League team had ever reached that mark to begin a calendar year, with City reaching yet another milestone as they threaten to run away with the league title. 

Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva scored at Goodison Park, cancelling out Richarlison’s strike to secure another three points.

City’s amazing run continues

Pep Guardiola’s side have now won a remarkable 17 straight games in all competitions, last failing to win in a 1-1 draw against West Brom on December 15, and last losing on November 21 against Tottenham.

Since that loss to Spurs, City haven’t trailed for a single minute in any of their last 16 Premier League games. Guardiola’s side are approaching Arsenal’s record of 19 straight games, which was set in 1999.

City have now opened up a 10-point lead atop the Premier League. Only Newcastle United in 1995-96 and Manchester United in 1997-98 have failed to win the title after building a double-digit lead in the league. 

10 – Manchester City have won their first 10 top-flight matches in 2021, the longest ever winning run by a team from the start of a calendar year in top-flight history. Juggernaut. pic.twitter.com/PYm8XbCD2O

What did Guardiola say?

Speaking to BBC Sport after the game, the Man City boss admitted it’s difficult for City to maintain the run they’re on with a growing target on their back.

“When you win a lot of games everyone wants to beat you and it is tricky,” Guardiola said. “I have not seen that the team is thinking of the table, we have spoken about that. We are not here to defend our lead, it is all about three points, three points.

“There are 42 points still to fight for, we are in the middle of February. Now we rest for a few days, there are so many games.”

What’s next for City?

Guardiola’s side will face Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday before they take on Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League last-16 first leg on Wednesday.

Fernando Torres: Former Liverpool, Chelsea & Spain striker to retire. Spanish World Cup-winning striker Fernando Torres has announced he is to retire from football. Torres, 35, played at Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, and Chelsea in his 18-year career and is currently at Sagan Tosu in Japan’s J1 League. In 110 games for Spain, he scored the winner in Euro 2008 and was on target in their Euro 2012 final win. “After 18 exciting years, the time has come to put an end to my football career,” he said on social media. Torres said he will hold a news conference in Tokyo on Sunday to “explain all the details”. His career started with Atletico, before a £20m move to Liverpool in 2007, where he scored 81 goals in 142 games. In 2011, he was signed by Chelsea for a then British record transfer fee of £50m. Although he failed to replicate his goalscoring form at Stamford Bridge, he was part of the Blues’ Champions League-winning team in 2012. He also won the FA Cup and scored in their 2-1 win against Benfica in the Europa League final in 2013. After 45 goals in 172 games at Chelsea and a brief four-month loan spell at AC Milan, he returned to Atletico in late 2014. He finished on the losing side as Atletico lost the 2016 Champions League final to Real Madrid, but won a second Europa League in 2018 – his final appearance before moving to Japan. Torres, who is Spain’s third highest goalscorer with 38, played in six major tournaments including their 2010 World Cup triumph.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has revealed the team’s priority of the season ahead of their opening fixture in the La Liga against Celta Vigo on Saturday. Zidane has marked the La Liga as the team’s priority this season though he knows the importance of the Champions League to Real Madrid as well.Zidane spoke about the importance of the league when he arrived again in March.”I’ve always maintained that the league is the most important thing for me, as it’s the day to day,” he said at the time.”It’s the most complicated thing to win. “We’ll try to start LaLiga in the best possible way next season.”That’ll be an important idea from pre-season onwards.”It has to be the primary objective, without disrespecting any other competitions.”Part of Zidane’s logic is the idea that strong performances in the league can keep a team competitive and ready to go in the cup competitions too, as was the case in 2016/17 when he oversaw a LaLiga and Champions League double
