Manchester City has taken this season by the horns, and they are showing zero signs of letting up leading to Christmas. On Wednesday they drubbed Swansea by four goals to nil, extending their record for successive top-flight victories to 15.

But what does that actually mean? Well, we can reminisce about Chelsea's formidable charge for last seasons title, Arsenal's 'Invincibles' of 2003-04, then there was Manchester United domination for the best part of a decade and Liverpool before them back in the 90s. Looking even further back was the Spurs side of the 1960s who had a superb run too.
History will remember all of these achievements but, if we just look at the top flight of English football, City's start to this season is three points better than anyone else has ever managed.
The only points they dropped so far was way back on 21 August against Everton who held on for a 1-1 draw.

But how does this run rank against others in Europe's history books?

Top spot is held by Bayern Munich who cracked 19 wins in a row, their run coming to a halt in March 2014. Which basically means that Pep Guardiola's team this season is in for a shot at being the all-time best.

On Wednesday, during the BBC's Match Of The Day show, host Gary Lineker asked the Premier League's all-time record goalscorer, Alan Shearer, if they're one of the best we've ever seen. "I don't think there is any doubt about that, and top players in that team, with hunger and desire to put in a performance week in, week out," said Shearer.

"It has to has to be admired."

Match of the Day commentator, Jonathan Pearce, was full of admiration, saying, "There have been great teams in the modern era but, in terms of fluent football and as an irresistible force, Manchester City are the best the Premier League has ever seen.

"I've never seen a team in all my years play like this."
