Man City fullback Oleksandr Zinchenko reaches winning Premier League record

Manchester City fullback Oleksandr Zinchenko now shares the Premier League's all-time record for successive victories with David Silva after City beat West Ham 5-0 on the opening day of the season.

The Ukrainian played the full 90 minutes and extended his winning streak to 23 matches, which moves him level with the Spanish midfielder at the top of the rankings.

The City duo sit ahead of team-mates Ederson, Fernandinho and Kevin De Bruyne, all of whom recorded an 18-game winning run at the beginning of the 2017/18 season.

Pep Guardiola's side have reached countless milestones over the past two seasons and Zinchenko would continue that trend should he feature and City win against Tottenham Hotspur next Saturday.
