Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has made history by becoming the fastest manager to win 100 Premier League games.

The record was established after City defeated Sheffield United 2-0 at home on Sunday, where the likes of Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne got on the scoresheet. Having said that, it has only the Spaniard 134 games to reach the milestone, thus surpassing the previous record holder, Jose Mourinho who achieved the feat in 142 games.

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp sits third in the list. He reached the century in his 159th Premier League game – a 5-2 win over Liverpool’s noisy neighbours, Everton earlier in December.

Speaking about the achievement, Guardiola hailed his players and said it has been a rather collective effort from the team.

“It’s a big compliment for the Club, players and staff to achieve 100 victories,” he said.

“It’s an incredible achievement for this incredible organisation and big compliments to all the players and staff we had during this period.

“Prestigious clubs, Chelsea, Manchester United, Everton, Liverpool and Manchester City is there in front of them, with the incredible amount of games won in a short period.

“We have been consistent, especially in the Premier League. We are all delighted for this achievement.”

Meanwhile, despite a win over Sheffield, City remain third in the Premier League standing with 41 points after 20 games. Leicester City, who suffered a 4-0 thumping at hands of Liverpool, sit second with 42 points, while the Reds enjoy a slender 13-point lead at the top with a game still in hand.
