It hasn't always been plain sailing for Pep Guardiola's side however, as on four occasions (Bournemouth, Huddersfield, Southampton, West Ham) they've had to come back from a goal down, and on four occasions they've relied on late goals to secure all three points (Bournemouth, Huddersfield, Southampton, West Ham).
"We needed our goalkeeper to play well".
Arsenal managed to win 14 successive games in 2002, however, their 14th win ran into the next season and so does not count - although in doing so they set the record for the longest winning run in the English top flight (14).
Under Guardiola, City will be looking to challenge on all fronts and the former Barcelona boss is expecting his team to continue their recent run.
"We're disappointed not to have taken anything from the game but we're really proud of the players".
"We spoke a lot about defending set pieces but they are taller", Guardiola added. I am not judging but it is hard. Hopefully in the future opponents can try to play and maybe it will be easier'. I like to face the team with the best players as possible, to see if it is able to beat them but I think at the end'.
Adrian gained praise from West Ham fans for his performance, and at the time of writing, led the club's official poll about who was their man of the match. And just when it seemed the Hammers could hold on and at least get a shocking point away, Kevin De Bruyne fond David Silva with a ideal cross, as the Spainard found some stretching powers to tap the ball past Adrian in the 83rd minute. My feeling was I thought we deserved it (to equalise).
