Make that 13.
Manchester City extended their winning run to a baker’s dozen of Premier League matches on Sunday, with David Silva’s late strike against West Ham at the Etihad Stadium also making it 20 victories in a row for Pep Guardiola’s side in all competitions.
It was the third time in a week that City had won a game 2-1 late on – with Raheem Sterling hitting the winning goals against both Huddersfield and Southampton to keep his side on their title march.
But how does their 13 match run compare to others in Premier League history?
Here’s a look at the teams who loved the winning habit:
11 wins in a row
Chelsea – April to September 2009
Guus Hiddink’s first spell as the Blues’ interim manager ended – in league terms at least – with successive wins over West Ham, Fulham, Arsenal, Blackburn and Sunderland.
Carlo Ancelotti then opened up with six straight wins to establish a then club record, before the run was surprisingly ended by Wigan with the help of a Petr Cech dismissal and goals from Titus Bramble and Paul Scharner.
Yep, Titus Bramble.
Manchester United – December 2008 to March 2009
Following United’s return from the Club World Cup and against the backdrop of the famous press conference at which Rafael Benitez, then manager of title rivals Liverpool, read out his list of “facts”, the Red Devils won 11 in a row.
Liverpool themselves ended the run by winning 4-1 at Old Trafford but Sir Alex Ferguson’s men finished four points ahead of their rivals to claim a third straight title.
Liverpool – February to April 2014
Liverpool’s 2013/14 title challenge was powered by the club’s longest winning run in the Premier League era, which in itself brought 38 goals for a free-flowing side fronted by Luis Suarez.
It was then of course ended with defeat to Chelsea at Anfield, as the title slipped out of captain Steven Gerrard’s grasp.
Manchester City – April to September 2015
City finished as Premier League runners-up to Chelsea despite winning their final six games of the 2014/15 campaign, and they then opened last season with five more.
Just as everybody was tipping them to run away with the title they lost at home to West Ham to end the run,and then they failed to mount a serious challenge as Leicester remarkably won the league.
12 wins in a row
Manchester United – March to August 2000
United won the 1999/2000 title by a thumping 18-point margin, rounding it off with 11 straight wins in which they scored 37 goals in the process.
They opened the following season with a 2-0 win over Newcastle before the run came to a close with a 1-1 against Ipswich Town.
13 wins in a row
Chelsea – October to December 2016
After Antonio Conte struggled to make his mark on new club Chelsea – who looked all at sea in back-to-back losses to Liverpool and Arsenal – the Italian switched his formation to his favoured 3-4-3 and the Blues never looked back.
The first six of the wins were achieved without conceding a goal, with a 4-2 victory over Stoke on New Year’s Eve stretching the run to 13 games, before Dele Alli’s brace ended the run as Tottenham won 2-0.
14 wins in a row
Arsenal – February to August 2002
Arsene Wenger’s side finished their 2001-02 title-winning campaign with 13 successive wins – including a title clinching success at Old Trafford – and then beat Birmingham 2-0 in the opening game of the next, before a 2-2 draw with West Ham ended the run.
It is the longest ever winning run in the English top flight, equalled only in the second division by Manchester United in 1904-05, Bristol City the following season and Preston in 1950-51.
