Man City are looking to win three consecutive away league matches at Sheffield United for the first time since a run of four between 1905 and 1908.

City have scored 33 away Premier League goals in 11 fixtures on the road this season at an average of three per game. In English top-flight history, only one team have averaged more goals per match away from home in a season, with Preston North End scoring 35 in 11 games in 1888-89 - an average of 3.2.

City striker Sergio Aguero has scored five goals in two Premier League appearances in January - one more than he managed in 11 appearances this season across September, October, November and December.
