Pep Guardiola keeps etching his name into the record books, due to his outstanding tactical display at Manchester City.

Guardiola arrived at the Manchester-based club on July 1, 2016, and he was tasked with building a team that can rule for years to come.

Pep Guardiola experienced a rocky start to his spell as manager of Manchester City, with the team falling below standards during his first season at the helm.

The Cityzens struggled during the 2016/17 season, as they finished with 78 points from 38 matches, ending the campaign third on the log.

That tally (78) is the lowest accrued by Guardiola in his stay so far in the Premier League, as he set his team for higher standards every year, despite the quaking successes they achieve.

The latest Premier League record of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City

Anyway, the latest of the records penned into history by Guardiola is that of most wins in the first 300 Premier League matches.

The former Bayern Munich boss leads the way with 221 wins, while Jose Mourinho comes second with 189 victories.

Third on the standings is Jurgen Klopp with 188 wins, while Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger had 183 and 180, occupying fourth and fifth respectively.

Guardiola has made City a respected team in England

Pep Guardiola has accentuated his tactical ingenuity against the “big boys” in England – Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Arsenal.

Additionally, he has also taken Manchester City to a respected position, where they are also mentioned amongst the big teams in the Premier League, without one batting an eyelid.

Interestingly, Guardiola’s City are gunning for an unprecedented four Premier League titles in a row, a record that will also put them in the history books as the first English club to do so.

Pep Guardiola has delineated a possessive-based style of play but has also tweaked things in recent years when there was a need for it.

This has seen his side become more electric and sound, with a notable example also being when he returned to his traditional number 9 style with the acquisition, having left it for a false 9 approach at Manchester City, with Kevin De Bruyne and former star Raheem Sterling being put in that position.

Anyway, Manchester City have only the Premier League and FA Cup to battle for this season, having crashed out of the Champions League, following their defeat on penalties to Real Madrid in the quarter-finals.

They also failed to win the Carabao Cup, with Liverpool picking up the trophy after beating rivals Chelsea in February 2024.

The Cityzens return to action on Saturday, May 4, 2024, facing Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Etihad Stadium in a Matchday 36 Premier League affair.

Manchester City sit 2nd on the log behind Arsenal with 79 points from 34 matches, with Mikel Arteta’s side being at the summit with 80 points, having played one game more than the defending champions.

Pep Guardiola’s side have city rivals Manchester United to battle in the final of the FA Cup, as they look to submerge their neighbors in back-to-back meetings in the important stage.
