Manchester City marched forward on Saturday with a 3-0 win over Burnley that saw Sergio Aguero equal the club’s scoring record, much to the delight of Pep Guardiola.
The Argentinian striker found the net from the penalty spot to equal the record of 177 goals set by Eric Brook between 1927 and 1940, helping City extend their lead at the top of the Premier League standings.
"It is one more goal and he is going to get one," Guardiola said. "He is going to get an amazing record and hopefully the next one is not the last one."
The win, City’s seventh in a row, saw them move five points clear of second-placed Manchester United, and they have now won a club-record 11 straight games in all competitions.
"We play to score goals and to create as many chances as possible," Guardiola said. "Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't.
"Our expectations we have to handle and in every game we play, we have to try to win. It's important at the back we didn't concede and up front, we created a lot.
"To score three goals against Burnley is not easy. After the Champions League, it is always difficult because the Champions League is so demanding. Not just physically but mentally.
"It was a fantastic performance, we didn't concede too much and [Burnley] suffered their first defeat in away games today.
"Burnley is always tough, their physicality. They work like a team. This is so important for us and our confidence."
