Although Manchester United was a team with many fans and at the same time one of the most traditional in English football, it was not a team that constantly won championships and much less fought until the final stages of the Champions League.
With the arrival of the Arab sheiks, the team found better results, however, it found its best moment under the command of Pep Guardiola, the Spanish coach who made history at Barcelona and later won many local titles at Bayern Munich.
The recent 4-0 win over Newcastle saw Manchester City add 34 victorious matches in one season, beating historic 1982 Liverpool. In addition, they scored 104 goals, also in the same year. The figures may increase, as there are two more games left to end in 2021.
The ‘Citizens’ are leaders of the Premier League with 44 points, now three more than Liverpool, after the Reds drew 2-2 against Tottenham. The City is one of the candidates to stay with the Champions League 2021/22.
On the historical numbers, Guardiola indicated: “The records show the consistency we have as a team, it is not winning titles or finals, but winning and winning. The records are to be broken and we are happy to have them “.
Regarding the win against Newcastle: “A good result, not a good performance. We were lucky, as Newcastle did not defend well on the first goal and there was brilliant action from Joao Cancelo for the second goal. The first half was one of the worst we’ve played this season and the second half was much better. “.
