How Manchester City have dominated teams promoted to the Premier League since 2007 at the Etihad Stadium
Their unbeaten run now stands at 34 matches, with the latest success coming against Fulham on Saturday
Records were piled up for Manchester City when they waltzed to the Premier League title last season - 11 of them in fact, ranging from biggest title-winning margin to most goals and most consecutive wins.
And while it is still early days in the new season, they've continued in similar vein, racking up impressive statistics.
Although not a known record, their victory over Fulham at the weekend extended their unbeaten run at home against teams promoted to the Premier League to a whopping 34 matches, with 30 of them victories.
They last lost at home to a promoted team in February 2007 when a Leroy Lita double gave Reading the points at the Etihad Stadium.
Even hardcore City fans would have to think hard to name some of the players in their line-up that day - among them the American DaMarcus Beasley and Tunisian Hatem Trabelsi.
Italian Bernardo Corradi was on the bench alongside Daniel Sturridge, who scored in the Champions League for Liverpool against Paris Saint-Germain last night.
This was of course more than a year before the acquisition of the club by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed’s Abu Dhabi United Group, after which came the big-money transfers and trophies.
Memorable moments from the fixtures against the promoted sides since 2007 include a Robinho hat-trick against Stoke, and the dramatic ending to the 2011/12 season when City were losing to QPR on the final day before two goals in the dying minutes won the title.
