Man City’s win set an English record for consecutive domestic wins, Pep Guardiola ringing up 15-straight in all competitions.

All that, in detail, below.

Swansea City 1-3 Manchester City

Rodri had a goal and an assist but left with a minor injury concern as Man City set its new standard with a 15th-consecutive win.

Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus also scored for Guardiola, who did not have Ruben Dias, Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, or Fernandinho in the 18, handing starts to Zack Steffen and Eric Garcia while subbing youngsters Claudio Gomes and Thomas Doyle in during the second half.

USMNT forward Jordan Morris started for the hosts and fellow American national teamer Paul Arriola made his Swans debut over the final 25 minutes.

Swansea’s goal came from 20-year-old Morgan Whittaker, who ruined USMNT keeper Steffen’s clean sheet in the 77th minute. Steffen was a perfect 28-for-28 passing on a 29-touch night.

The numbers behind the streak are out-of-this world, as Man City won 15 times in 53 days by a combined scoreline of 40-5.

Leicester City 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

Kelechi Iheanacho’s goal deep in stoppage time helped Brendan Rodgers’ men past Brighton at the King Power Stadium.

Iheanacho replaced an ineffective Jamie Vardy in the 62nd minute, while Leicester’s James Justin and Ayoze Perez left the match with injuries.

The hosts had a bit more of the ball and a 10-7 edge in shot attempts.

Dan Burn totally lost track of the Nigerian match-winner.

Sheffield United 1-0 Bristol City

David McGoldrick won a penalty that BIlly Sharp converted as Chris Wilder’s men picked up a home win over the Robins.

Alfie Mawson was sent off for the handball that sent Sharp to the spot and the Championship side couldn’t come back down a man to its Premier League hosts at Bramall Lane.
