With an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League, Manchester City brilliantly created a record of the best start to a season by any team in the history of the league. The Citizens have drawn just one of their opening 11 matches of the season, winning their last nine scoring an average of 3goal per match.
That change precipitated a record-breaking 11-match unbeaten that sent them to the Premier League’s Summit and there’s a possibility of no looking back.
They are one of the few clubs in Europe to boast of an unbeaten streak this season.
Indeed, Pep Guardiola Team have been topping the table ever since their city rival; Manchester United draw a game against Liverpool.
Spurs, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal will try making a decent fist of challenging Manchester City stronghold on top spot but history suggests the leader were never going to give it up easily yet.
Stats from five seasons now have it that a club that tops till the end of the Christmas fixtures have always had their way to win the League. Yet we are still far away from Christmas with several mouth watery fixtures involving the table leader, Manchester City.
With other contenders hoping ahead to Manchester City key fixtures against United (December 10) and Tottenham (December 16), the possibility of the citizens obtaining less than the maximum point is high but with their current form of defeating Liverpool 5-0, Chelsea 1-0 and Arsenal 3-1, we don’t need any more evidence.
