Pep Guardiola became the most successful manager in the history of Manchester City in victories, after his players won 1-0 at Chelsea in the big clash of the Premier League.
The Spaniard already has 220 victories, one more than the legend Les McDowell.
McDowell led City in 592 games and Guardiola in 303, but won three Premier League titles after arriving five years ago.
Les McDowell, manager between 1950 and 1963, led City to just one FA Cup victory in 1956, while Guardiola had already won eight trophies.
"I'm so proud. We did it at Stamford Bridge against the Champions League winner. We were great. It makes me proud, a little bit of myself, but especially of the club," Guardiola said after the match.
"Today the boys were exceptional. In this stadium and against this opponent, what we did makes me so proud. When we win, the manager is a genius, when we lose, he is not. That's all and I understand him perfectly," he added.
Guardiola faces a tough week away to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday in the Champions League before the Premier League match against Liverpool at Anfield next weekend.
