Pep Guardiola's side raced into a 2-0 lead inside half an hour against West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Leroy Sane's deflected opener was their 99th of the campaign and an unfortunate own goal for former City hero Pablo Zabaleta brought up the century. Cresswell did pull one back just before half-time but Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho gave a gloss to the scoreline, City winning 1-4.

City's 100-goal haul is the swiftest in English top-flight history since Everton reached three figures in 32 matches back in the 1931-32 season. Chelsea's record of 103 is now well in their sights.

It is the fourth time a team has scored 100 times in a Premier League season. Chelsea were the first to do so on their way to the title in 2009-10, while City and Liverpool hit 102 and 101 as they battled for glory in 2013-14.
