Man City boss Guardiola expects Liverpool to smash records

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes Liverpool are set to go on a record-breaking spree.

Liverpool are on target to beat City's records for most points, most wins, biggest points total winning margin, most consecutive victories, earliest title win and most away victories.

Jurgen Klopp's runaway league leaders need 11 wins and a draw from their remaining 15 games to beat City's record 100-point return, set in the 2017-18 season.

The Merseyside club are currently on a run of 14 straight Premier League wins this season, just four short of City's record, with Guardiola convinced his own side's records are under threat.

“It can happen, the records are always there to be broken," said Guardiola.

“So we broke it when someone thought it couldn't be broken before.

“Sooner or later it will happen, either this season or in the future, history speaks clearly about that.

“It's not easy to beat them at the moment, they've found a way to win games."
