All the records set as Man City beat Wolves

All the records set as Man City condemn Wolves to 4-1 defeat

March 2, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Citizens landed a number of feats with Tuesday night's big win over Wolves.

Premier League leaders Manchester City reached a new high with Tuesday night's big win over Wolves at the Etihad. The Citizens consolidated their status atop the league table by defeating Nuno Espirito Santo's side 4-1, setting a number of records in the process. 

Pep Guardiola's men dominated the match-up from start to finish and had their performance duly awarded inside the first 15 minutes through Leander Dendoncker's own-goal. The resumption of play in the second half presented a little twist as Conor Coady's header in the 61st minute served up the equalizer for the visitors against the run of play.

Wolves proved to be resilient from that point onwards but would live to rue numerous missed opportunities before Manchester City hit their stride from the 80th minute onwards. First, Gabriel Jesus restored the lead for the Citizens with 10 minutes left on the clock before Riyad Mahrez capitalized on an error by substitute Owen Otasowie to give the hosts a two goal cushion. Inside the third minute of additional time, the Video Assistant Referee prevented Gabriel Jesus from being denied a legitimate second goal to take the scoreline to 4-1.

Having extended their winning run across all competitions to 21 and their streak in the Premier League to 15, the Citizens established a 15-point lead above cross-town rivals Manchester United with the night's result. Even more significantly, they increased their unbeaten run in all competition to 28, equalling their club record which was set between April and December 2017.

As things stand, Manchester City are now three wins away from levelling the world record for the most consecutive wins in all competitions in the 21st century. Brazilian club Cortiba set the record in 2011, while European giants Bayern Munich and Real Madrid complete the top three with 23 and 22 wins respectively.

In addition to Tuesday night's achievement, the fact that Guardiola's men took the lead against Wolves meant that they have not trailed for a single minute in any of their last 19 Premier League games – equalling Arsenal's competition record of 19 successive games without falling behind, which was set between December 1998-May 1999.

Another interesting bit of statistic was that the encounter between Manchester City and Wolves had eight Portuguese players featuring in the starting lineup. The number Portuguese was the most managed by any other Premier League game in history.
