Pep Guardiola's men comfortably saw off Tottenham on Monday night and could be set to match Arsenal's Invincibles in avoiding defeat all season

Manchester City maintained their unbeaten start to the Premier League season with a narrow 1-0 win at Tottenham on Monday night.

Riyad Mahrez’s early strike sealed the points on a Wembley pitch still blemished by Sunday afternoon’s NFL action, prompting bet365 to make the champions just 4/9 (1.44) to retain their crown.

That price is likely too short for most punters, especially considering the season is just 10 games old, but the online bookmaker is offering 10/1 (11.0) that City go unbeaten in the league this term.

Of course, only Arsenal have ever gone a Premier League season without losing as Arsene Wenger led his side to 49 league games unbeaten in total.

Pep Guardiola’s men almost joined them in the history books last term but a gripping 4-3 reverse at Liverpool in January put paid to that, although they still won the title without breaking a sweat.

They have already escaped Anfield with a point this season in what was a fairly drab 0-0 draw, thanks in part to Mahrez’s late penalty miss, and in fact they have already played three of the ‘big six’ away from home.

Away form was certainly not an issue last term as City won 16 and drew two, so there is very chance Guardiola’s side will improve on that record this time around with the trip to Liverpool out of the way.

It has already been a perfect start at the Etihad, where the Citizens have won all five games comfortably albeit against bottom half teams, but City took 50 points there last campaign and will be confident of similar success.

bet365 also offer 33/1 (34.0) on Liverpool in the same market following their impressive start, and 11/2 (6.50) that the Reds go unbeaten at home again as they did last season.

Chelsea are yet to lose this season after a magnificent beginning under new manager Maurizio Sarri and they can be backed at 66/1 (67.0) to avoid defeat all term.
