Pep Guardiola and breaking records go hand in hand, that’s for sure.
The Catalan still holds the most consecutive victories in La Liga, Bundesliga and the Premier League and became the first manager to win six trophies in one year back in 2009 whilst at Barcelona.
Sticking with the Spanish giants, the current Manchester City boss also become the first Barcelona manager to beat Real Madrid four times on the bounce.
His second season in England also saw him take City to the 100-points mark, the first manager to guide a club to that landmark in the Premier League.
And now he is set to smash another record if City taste victory again tonight as they travel to Wolves.

That’s because Guardiola will reach 100 Premier League wins in the fewest number of games if his side finish on the right side of the scoreline.
The City boss would break Jose Mourinho’s record of reaching the century mark in 142 games by 10 matches.
It will undoubtedly be another incredible achievement to add to his CV.
But how does his inevitable record compare to other top Premier League managers?
Well, with Mourinho leading the pile at the moment, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp was the second quickest to reach the 100 wins mark by doing it in 159 games.
Moving further down the list, Sir Alex Ferguson did it in 162 matches, 17 less than fourth placed Arsene Wenger.
Currently sitting in fifth and likely to move down to sixth at the hands of Guardiola’s achievement is former Liverpool, Chelsea and Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez who reached 100 victories in 181 games.
If City fail to clinch maximum points tonight, Guardiola still has nine more games to break the record.
And when he does cross the line, it’s safe to say, he will be holding that record for some time.News Now - Sport News
