How Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola overtook former Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson with his latest win



Manchester City v Aston Villa

Pep Guardiola and Manchester City collected three more vital points at Aston Villa against a resurgent Villians led by Steven Gerrard.

Ruben Dias opened the scoring just before half an hour into the game, shooting from outside the box with a left-footed effort after a Raheem Sterling pullout slipped through everyone in the penalty area.

Then the scene was stolen by Bernardo Silva.

The ball was played out of Manchester City’s defense and hit Gabriel Jesus, who handed the ball to the Portuguese midfielder.

Just one meter from the penalty area, Silva hit the ball to the max, crushing a nice volley past Emiliano Martinez and into the roof of the net.

A goal from Ollie Watkins in the second half left the result hanging, but the Citizens won to keep pace with Liverpool and Chelsea, both of whom also won last night.

Guardiola beats Sir Alex to win record

Now, after the victory over Aston Villa, a quite impressive statistic surrounding Pep Guardiola has emerged.

The victory over the Villians gave the Spaniard his 150th Premier League victory at the head of the Citizens. Guardiola becomes only the fourth manager to reach this total.

Perhaps indicative of Manchester’s grip of power, however, he broke the record of Sir Alex Ferguson, who reached the statistic in 247 games.

In contrast, Guardiola only took 204 games.

This is another victory for the noisy neighbors.
