Manchester City have made the best start to a Premier League season than any other team in history.

City’s record of: Played 10. Won 9. Drawn 1. Lost 0. Goal difference +29, betters even Roberto Mancini‘s title winners back in the 2011-12 campaign.

They had a goal difference of +28 after their first 10 games, even if the points tally of 28 was identical.

Guardiola’s players are certainly superior to Jose Mourinho‘s Chelsea team of 2005-06, who won nine of their opening 10 matches with a goal difference of +20.

Meanwhile, City youth recruitment chief Joe Makin has likened Phil Foden to Manchester United legend Paul Scholes.

He told the Daily Mail: “When he used to play for Vulcans, the scouts always hovered after the game but there was never a danger Phil was going to sign for any club other than City.

“I see him like a Paul Scholes. He’s a Manc and that’s it. He signs in each day, trains, toddles off home, job done.

“He’s the quietest in the group even though he’s the one training with the first team.

“His younger brother trained at Vulcans a couple of years ago. Phil came down coaching the five- and six-year-olds in a plain tracksuit, not his City one. Some of the parents had no idea that he’s a star in the making, though I’m sure a lot of them will now.”
