Goals from Sergio Aguero, Nicolas Otamendi and Leroy Sane ensured Manchester City extended their winning streak to 11 games, a record Guardiola was quick to play down.

After nine rounds, City has 25 points - five more than rival Manchester United which lost at Huddersfield 2-1.

Aguero, making his first appearance since breaking his rib in a taxi crash on September 28, struck his 177th goal for City with a penalty, equalling the mark set by Eric Brook between 1927 and 1939. A lot of control and after the second and third goal the game is over.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola admits his pride after watching his side notch up a club-record equalling 11th straight win in all competitions.

The visitors nearly broke through themselves after a quarter-of-an-hour, as Chris Wood burst past Kyle Walker and Nicolas Otamendi, with Ederson diving bravely at the striker's feet.

Ederson dived at his feet and quickly rose to prevent Scott Arfield following up with a shot but Wood was injured in the collision and was forced off soon after.

Bernardo Silva went down after a challenge from Nick Pope in the box, and Aguero duly converted from 12 yards to open the scoring. The ball ran free and Pope was adjudged to have brought down Bernardo Silva in the rush to regain possession. First, Sane delivered an outswinging corner met by Otamendi's powerful 73rd minute header, with Steven Defour on the line unable to kick it clear.

Moments later the points were wrapped up as De Bruyne picked out Sane with a characteristic defense-splitting through-ball.
