Guardiola sets Premier League record with 111th Manchester City win


Pep Guardiola Manchester City 2019-20

Pep Guardiola has outstripped all of his peers past and present in the Premier League after racking up his latest victory at the helm of Manchester City.

Pep took the opportunity to rotate his team, resting the likes of Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez, but it made little difference to the overall result as City ran out 2-1 winners.

David Silva and Gabriel Jesus both netted in the first half, meaning David Brooks' late strike was little more than consolation for the Cherries, who find themselves in serious danger of going down to the Championship.

Not only was it City's third consecutive Premier League victory, but it also brought up Pep's 150th match in the English top flight, a run in which he has surpassed all previous managers in terms of success.

Wednesday's clash was his 111th win on the bench, marking an outstanding strike-rate of almost 64 per cent.

It is also more than any other man has achieved in the same time-frame, even Premier League legends such as Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson.

Current Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho sits second in the rankings, having picked up 105 victories from his first 150 matches.

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp completes the podium with 92, followed by Ferguson (90) and ex-Reds, Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle boss Kenny Dalglish (85).

Guardiola, of course, has the luxury of arguably the Premier League's deepest, most distinguished squad of players at his disposal, and he has not shied away from changing up his first XIs over the course of the season.

Wednesday saw City make seven alterations from the starting line-up that downed Brighton at the weekend, taking them up to 137 in total in 2019-20 - far outstripping nearest challengers Chelsea, a long way back with 95.

City will be back in action in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal and continue their Premier League campaign the following Tuesday with their penultimate clash of the season, away to Watford.
