City thrashed Leeds 7-0 at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday, with six different goalscorers for Guardiola's side.

Kevin De Bruyne was the player to score twice, with Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Riyad Mahrez, John Stones and Nathan Ake also netting.

Record-breaking win

Foden's goal for Man City's opener was the 500th Premier League strike scored during Guardiola's Man City tenure.

That landmark has been reached in just 207 games, the fastest any manager has seen their side reach 500 goals.
