Guardiola's Man City breaks 118-year winning record

Pep Guardiola is breaking records at Manchester City.

City's 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday marked the club's greatest season start in their history.

The weekend triumph over the Cherries beat a 118-year record set by Sam Ormerod's City side who then called Hyde Road their home.

The Blues began 1897/98 with seven victories before being held 1-1 by Newton Heath – soon to be renamed Manchester United – before tailing off.

Guardiola's City have won all eight of their first eight matches and will go in search of a ninth win on the bounce at Swansea City on Wednesday.
