Man City 3-0 Brighton: Guardiola reaches 250 wins as Man City boss
As Cityzens beat Brighton to return to the top of the Premier League
As Manchester City’s bid for a fourth title in five seasons continued apace, goals from Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva sealed the victory that moved the Cityzens back to the top of the table, one point ahead of Liverpool with six matches of the season remaining.
The Catalan achieved his 250th victory in his 344th game in all competitions, which means he has reached the tally quicker than any other manager in Premier League history, eclipsing previous record holder Jose Mourinho who got there in 396 matches.
It gives Guardiola a win percentage of 72.67 per cent from his five-and-a half-seasons at the Etihad Stadium, a golden period during which he has guided the Club to 10 trophies.
City have scored an impressive 835 goals under the 51-year-old, at an average of 2.43 per game, earning plenty of plaudits for an attacking style of play which has been critical to our success.
