Silva bells, it's Xmas time in City

"We didn't talk about the record before the game to be honest".

"Of course, it is special when you win so many games", said David Silva.

In the midfield area, at any rate, Pep Guardiola is able to field two footballers who could very well be the best two central midfielders in the league. "They had one more day's rest than us, they were fresher than us, and mentally fresher because a big match takes more from our players".

"They're not the games that will decide our season but it was hard to watch at times because they were so dominant".

It seemed inevitable that they would break the record considering the struggle Paul Clement's side now find themselves in, and goals from Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Agüero giving them the excellent record. We are so demanding for our players.

Pep Guardiola's side have registered 16 league victories so far this season and have racked up an 11 point lead over their rivals Man United who sit in second place.

"I think it's fantastic for us, three victories in a row [in all competitions]", said Mauricio Pochettino, whose side are four points behind Chelsea in third.

The highlighting of individual achievements may seem like the antithesis of Guardiola's footballing philosophy, but outstanding parts always emerge from a great whole, as was evident during his time at Bayern Munich and especially at Barcelona.

"I've never seen a team in all my years play like this". That's no mean feat as there are a quite few of them, including all-time record goalscorer Sergio Agüero.
