It is quite remarkable that Manchester City have reached the point that when they beat a team 4-0, it is such a usual occurrence that it doesn't make headline news anymore.

That was the case when they dispatched Bournemouth yesterday, thanks to a brace from Sergio Aguero, with Raheem Sterling and Danilo also getting on the scoresheet.

The win extends their sensational run to 17 consecutive Premier League victories, and they have now scored a massive 60 goals in just 19 games.

After Manchester United surrendered a 2-1 lead against Leicester to draw in the final minute, City are now 13 points clear of their nearest rivals at Christmas.

It would take a collapse of unthinkable proportions for them to not win the Premier League title now, with the club on course to break a whole host of records.

With 55 points already amassed, they need just 41 more to set a new record for the most in a whole season, while they seem certain to score a new high for goals and widest winning margin.

Pep Guardiola's side are simply blowing teams away, and as of yet no one has come up with a plan to stop them.

But Liverpool will be hoping Newcastle and Crystal Palace can find a way of nullifying their exceptional attack.

That is because City are just five goals short of the Reds' record for the number of goals scored in a calendar year, which is 106.

Liverpool achieved that in 1982, and Guardiola's team became the first since then to score over 100 goals in a calendar year.

City travel to Newcastle on Boxing Day, before a trip down south to Crystal Palace in their final game of 2017, and will certainly fancy their chances of breaking yet another record.

After a sticky patch in which they won three games consecutively 2-1, they've found their goal-scoring form again, which is ominous for the Reds' 106 total.

It seems as though 2018 will almost certainly be another record-setting year for the Citizens in 2018 at this rate.
