Swansea City in their FA Cup tie on Wednesday, February 10.

Goals from Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus were enough for the club to cruise into the quarter-finals with a win in south Wales.

After four and a half seasons in charge, Guardiola has now achieved the milestone of an impressive 200 wins in one club.

The superb 3-1 FA Cup fifth round at Swansea marked city’s 15th consecutive win across all competitions.

The win was immediately hailed as a new English club record, surpassing the number of 14 wins chalked by Preston (from 1892) and Arsenal (ending in 1987).

Speaking post-match with BT Sport, as cited by BBC Sport, Guardiola praised Swansea City but he was pleased with his side’s performance:

“I had a feeling that they would create chances, they were dangerous up front. They were so aggressive but we controlled the game and we created a lot of chances but could not convert.”

“[15 straight wins] is a message for ourselves. We came to win that was the most important thing. We cannot deny how pleased and how proud we are to break this record from a long time ago. Records are there to be broken. It is not easy in the modern era to do 15 games in a row. We are happy for our club.”

On 200 wins as City boss, he said: “It is a lot of games and hopefully it is the beginning of more to come.”
