Six goals for Manchester City against Chelsea earned the rather more important achievements of moving back to the top of the Premier League and improving goal difference against Liverpool, but the remarkable blitz also shunted Pep Guardiola's team towards another record.

City, then, have between 15 and 23 games to score 37 goals for a new English record.

Smashing six past Chelsea has lifted Guardiola's side ahead of the 2014 record holders at the same stage of the campaign, with a minimum of 15 games left to get the 37 goals required for a new record (and 24 goals to knock the Busby Babes down to third and make it a Blue top-two).

For 57 years, the English goalscoring record was held by the Busby Babes with an almighty 143 in all competitions after a year that saw them win the league as well as reaching the final of the FA Cup and the semi-finals of the European Cup.

Having equalled second place with 143 goals in all competitions last season, Guardiola's men have a chance to show another way in which they have improved on their historic second season together - and write their name into more records in the process.

If they make it past League Two side Newport County in the fifth round, there will be just one top-six team that City can draw in the quarter-final of the FA Cup.

Winning those two ties immediately presents another three games, and there are five more on offer if they reach the final of all three cup competitions.
