Manchester City entered the record books on Sunday with a 2-1 victory over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium.

The Citizens became the first top-flight club to secure 11 consecutive away victories in all competitions, with their impressive run away from home starting at the back end of last season.

The stat, which was released by Twitter account OptaJoe, sets a new record for top-flight football in England and Manchester City were quick to show off some more of their recent achievements on social media.

Manchester City started their winning run on the last day of the 2016/17 season, securing a 5-0 victory away at Watford just three weeks after failing to beat Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

Pep Guardiola's side then secured back to back victories on the south coast, beating Brighton and Bournemouth at the start of this season. A comfortable win over Feyenoord in the Champions League was soon followed by a 6-0 hammering of Watford at Vicarage Road.

A Carabao Cup win over West Brom was next in line for the Citizens before Kevin de Bruyne scored a stunning left-footed effort to give Manchester City the win at the home of reigning Premier League champions, Chelsea.

The Baggies were once again in the firing line of a rampant City, this time suffering a narrow defeat in the Premier League. 

Perhaps most impressive for Guardiola, a dominant 4-2 victory over high-flying Napoli in the Champions League, a game where Sergio Agüero became the Citizens' all-time leading goalscorer.

City then secured a win at the King Power Stadium against Leicester before their victory on Sunday cemented their place in English football history.
