Arsenal on course to break proud Man City record under Pep Guardiola which no other team has managed

Arsenal have been in great form as they look to win the Premier League for the first time since 2003/04.

Arsenal are on course to break a proud Manchester City record which no other team has managed since Pep Guardiola took over.

Last season, the Gunners led for the majority of the Premier League season but were eventually overhauled by a rampant City team who were gunning for three trophies.

In the end, Mikel Arteta’s men came away empty-handed whilst City went on to clinch a historic treble.

This season, the North London club are looking to go one better and finish on top. However, they now have to deal with Liverpool as well as City.

Arsenal are currently basking in great form as they have scored 31 goals in the last seven matches.

They are also on course to end a City streak that has been going since Guardiola came to the club in the 16/17 season.

According to @analytic_footy on social media, who wrote: “Manchester City have been top for xG difference every single season since Pep joined in 16/17.

“Arsenal on track to break that streak for the first time this season, really still going understated just how good they are at the moment.”

Arsenal are two points adrift of leaders Liverpool, who are set to take on City at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

By the time that match kicks off, the Gunners could be sitting on top of the tree if they manage to beat Brentford on Saturday afternoon.

Speaking after their 6-0 thrashing of Sheffield United, Arteta urged his players to continue their fine form.

He said: “The players, the form they're in, they're confident, the chemistry, the determination that they are showing in every ball.

“They want more and they still believe that they can improve because we can improve in certain things and it's important that we maintain that.”

He added: "Without looking at the numbers it's probably the best that we've been but it has to be at the end of the season and we are focused on that…”
