City won 18 consecutive wins in all competitions when they beat Arsenal 1-0 on Sunday evening to dominate the top of the competition by 10 points from their closest competitors.
Guardiola’s side, which lost for the last time in November, have 59 points from 25 matches after Raheem Sterling scored the only goal of the match to make City claim its 13th consecutive Premier League victory.
“The number will stop one day and we will lose matches. I am surprised and happy that at a time when everyone in the world suffers, and all the teams in the world are wasting points, we have been playing steadily at the level over the last two months,” Guardiola said after winning the Emirates Stadium.
“People talk a lot about the record and about wins, but in order to do that you need to win such matches and achieve many, many wins.”
Guardiola said that Sergio Aguero, City’s historic goalscorer, who has not played since January 3 due to a series of injuries and his suffering from Covid-19, is close to returning to the stadiums.
The Spanish coach added, “I am looking forward to his involvement. We cannot forget that he missed a long time due to injury and that he will regain his rhythm only when he gets minutes of play.”
He continued, “As soon as I can do that, I will make him play because he deserves and I want it. I want to tell him to continue his hard work because his time will come.”
