Pep Guardiola is inching closer to becoming only the third manager in the history of the Premier League to reclaim the league title across one spell at any given club.

Manchester City sit 14 points clear at the top of the league table with 11 games remaining, but has insisted re-writing history has never been a priority for him. If Guardiola's side get their hands on the crown, the Spaniard will join the esteemed company of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger as the managers to have achieved the feat in the past.

Guardiola was informed of the record during his press conference and said: "I don't know when I sign to make history. Just to win one game. Then the second one. If we are able to play the team like we want to play, this is the only target. Titles are a consequence for something much deeper.

"When I arrived it was scary, I have doubts if we were able to do it. I know what we wanted to do but didn't know if we were able. I'm not a guy who imagines what happens. The reality is our team face a good team and when we achieve it, ask me the question how it feels and I will answer."

Legendary Machester United boss Ferguson won six of his 13 league titles by bringing the trophy back to Old Trafford, while former Arsenal boss Wenger reclaimed the title twice while he was in charge of the Gunners.
