Few people will know the quality Man City possess better than Mikel Arteta, who spent three years as Guardiola’s assistant before taking over as Arsenal manager, and so he will be under no illusions as to the scale of the task facing his side on Sunday.
In his pre-match press conference, Arteta talked up Man City as the best team in Europe, and a quick look at some of the statistics behind their incredible recent form makes it difficult to argue.
The Citizens have already smashed the record for most consecutive wins across all competitions by an English top-flight club, their run still ongoing at 17, while Wednesday’s 3-1 triumph over Everton saw them become the first top-flight side to ever win their opening 10 matches of a calendar year.
That perfect record in 2021 will be tested in the coming weeks with a difficult run which sees them face Arsenal, Borussia Monchengladbach, West Ham United and Manchester United in succession, but such is their dominance at the moment that they will go into all of those games as firm favourites.
You have to go back more than two months to December 15 for the last time they failed to win a game in any competition, while their unbeaten run stretches back 24 games to their 2-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur in November – incidentally their last league trip to North London.
Remarkably, that loss to Spurs was the last time Man City even trailed in a Premier League game, thanks largely to their 12 clean sheets in the 16 games since.
Guardiola’s men have now kept 22 clean sheets in all competitions over the course of the campaign – more than any other team in the top four tiers of English football or the
top five European leagues – while their record in the Premier League stands at just 15 goals conceded in 24 games, nine fewer than the next best defence.

A run of 12 consecutive league wins has seen Man City storm 10 points clear at the top of the table, and it is increasingly difficult to see anyone catching them even if Guardiola’s side begin to drop points with more regularity over the coming weeks.
Chances to take points off them are few and far between with Man City almost as impressive away from home as they have been at home this season, and they will arrive at the Emirates Stadium looking to equal the club record of 11 successive away wins in all competitions.
