Man City winger extends personal unbeaten sequence in matches he has scored in

With his goal in Manchester City’s 3-0 win over Aston Villa, Raheem Sterling extended a remarkable unbeaten run of Premier League matches whenever he scores. 

The winger has now played in 47 successive matches where he has grabbed a goal and not tasted defeat in the competition.

The run extends back to Sterling's time at Liverpool and he is now up to fourth in the all-time rankings for this statistic.

The 24-year-old is only one away from catching Didier Drogba's mark of 48 fixtures in a row. 

Heading the list is another Chelsea player, Frank Lampard, who went 67 successive matches unbeaten when scoring.

Player Matches unbeaten when scoring Date of last match in run
Frank Lampard 67 27/01/10
James Milner 53 05/10/19
Didier Drogba 48 20/09/09
Raheem Sterling 47 26/10/19
Darius Vassell 46 20/04/08
Ruud van Nistelrooy 46 07/02/04

However, Sterling's 47-match unbeaten run is a Premier League record in one way.

No player has gone so many matches when scoring and never losing for one club in the Premier League as he has.

City will hope that their winger can continue the run when they host Southampton next weekend.
