Manchester City have won their last 20 matches in all competitions, a new record for an English top-flight side.
It is now known to be the third-best winning sequence across Europe’s recognized ‘top five’ leagues, behind only the 23 in a row notched up by Bayern Munich last year and Real Madrid’s 22 successive victories in 2014.
Due to the tight schedules, with City chasing glory on four fronts this season, Guardiola admits he can’t acknowledge the records that relevant at the moment.

Pep said: “We don’t have time. There are many games, every three days a game, so we have to rest and think of the next one.
“We are delighted with what we have done so far, we cannot deny it. If no team has done it before it means how difficult it is.
“But, at the end, what counts in the world is if you lift the trophies or not. Still we cannot sit down on the sofa and say how good everything is.
“There is a lot of work to do and I have signals that we can still improve.”
City defeated West Ham 2 goals to one last Saturday, and David Moyes described City as the best team in Europe, but Guardiola disapproved that accolade is still to be earned.
He said: “The best team in Europe is Bayern Munich because they won everything, they are the best. In England the champions are Liverpool, they are the best.
“The crown, if you want to take it, you have to win. In February, March no one is champion.”
