It was a hard-earned victory but it has also earned them a place in the history books.

Manchester City’s penalty shoot-out victory over Wolves means they have set a new Club record of 12-consecutive wins.

The 3-0 win over Burnley at the weekend equalled the 11-straight victories recorded under Manuel Pellegrini between the 2014/15 and 2015/16 campaigns.

That record has now given way thanks to a dramatic shoot-out that saw City move into the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

Pep Guardiola’s side have played 14 matches this season in all competitions, winning 13 and drawing one, scoring 42 goals along the way.

They sit five points clear at the top of the Premier League and top their Champions League group after three wins from three games.

As stated on the club's website, City have also equalled the Club record of 20 matches unbeaten, which was set between November 24 2013 - January 29 2014. 

Should they avoid defeat again this weekend away to West Brom, another club record would be set by Guardiola and his merry men.
