After handing Pep Guardiola the Premier League title with a defeat to West Brom on Sunday, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is in danger of losing his special status to Pep.

With four games left in the season, Guardiola and City have now set their sights on rewriting history.

And that means breaking records set by the Special One during his time at Chelsea.

If City manage to win their four remaining games, they will set a new record for most wins and points in one Premier League season - both currently held by Chelsea under Mourinho.

The Stamford Bridge outfit collected the most number of points under Mourinho back in 2004/5 with 95, while it was also the Special One’s Chelsea that bagged the most wins in one season (30) in 2016/17.

As it stands, Guardiola’s City are on 28 wins and have 87 log points.

And he knows they still have a job to do if he wants to be the new Special One in English football.

Guardiola says: “We have to try. If you read what the people say, this week we have to improve.

“But you cannot deny that we were good this season. Every single day. To make 18 games in a row winning you have to be mentally strong.

“That is important to build up the club.

“It is important to believe because Manchester City is not like United or Chelsea or Arsenal - you know, the big clubs in England who have a big history behind them.”
