City are still unbeaten in the Premier League after 15 matches of the season.
The club are unbeaten in their last 21 league matches in total. If they avoid defeat, they will equal their all-time top-flight club record 22-match streak (set from 1936 to 1937 under manager Wilf Wild).
They are the first English team not to win a single game in the Champions League group phase.
Carlos Tevez has scored 13 of 15 penalties in the Premier League.
