Manchester City manager is on track to beat Jose Mourinho's mark of reaching 100 victories in the Premier League at record pace

Pep Guardiola can make history this season and become only the second manager after Sir Alex Ferguson to win three Premier League titles in a row.

But before May comes around Guardiola is on course to become an outright record holder of his own.

Chasing Mourinho

Heading into his fourth campaign, the Spaniard has taken charge of 114 matches in the Premier League and won 87 of them.

It means he is only 13 away from 100 victories in the competition and is fast approaching a mark set by another three-time champion.

 Jose Mourinho is the fastest manager to reach 100 having taken 142 matches to do so.

But if Guardiola keeps up his rate of winning, he will take only another 17 matches, and 131 in total, to reach the century.

Quickest managers to 100 wins
Manager Matches taken
Jose Mourinho 142
Sir Alex Ferguson 162
Arsene Wenger 179
Rafa Benitez 181
Claudio Ranieri 187

So, with that in mind, who are Manchester City's 17th opponents of the season?

That would be Arsenal, who host the reigning champions on 14 December at Emirates Stadium.
