Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola reached a century of Premier League victories after his side scarcely dispatched Sheffield United at Etihad Stadium last weekend.

The Citizens needed two second-half goals from Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne to overcome the Blades after regulation period.

Guardiola clinched his 100th win in charge of the team after 134 EPL matches - beating Jose Mourinho's previous record of 142.

The former Barcelona also dusted Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp record, who needed 159 matches to achieve the feat, while Sir Alex Ferguson reached the milestone after (162) games.

And former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger achieved the feat after laying 179 games during his reign at the Emirates Stadium.

"This achievement is a compliment for the club, the staff," Guardiola said after the match.

"One hundred victories in 134 games, only 34 where we (didn't win), it is an incredible achievement for this organisation, for all the staff and the people who did it.

"I'm alongside prestigious managers and clubs, and City is there and in front of them and that means what we have done in three seasons is incredible.

"Especially in the Premier League where you have to be consistent, we are all delighted with this achievement."

The Mirror further reported that Sheffield United were animated over the defeat which ended their 11-month unbeaten run away from home.

They took the lead earlier in the fixture but their joy was cut short after VAR chalked-off the goal for offside in the first half.

Briefly.co.za earlier reported Manchester City needed two second-half goals to return to winning ways after their disappointing 3-2 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers a few days back.

Sergio Aguero opened scoring for the Citizens in the 52nd minute after firing a thunderous shot into the roof of the net with Kevin De Bruyne claiming the assist for the opener.

De Bruyne then doubled City's lead with less than eight minutes left to play at the Etihad Stadium with 18 more games left to defend their title successfully.
