The 10 Best Starts To An EPL Season

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City have got their Premier League season off to a flying start, but is it the best the English top flight has ever seen?

Click through the gallery above to see the 10 best starts to a Premier League season, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Spaniard's side has a goal difference of 34 already, and are currently top of the EPL table, eight points clear of city rivals Manchester United in second place.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Citizens' current run is the best start to any Premier League campaign, with the club having won 12 and drawn one of their first 13 fixtures of the season. The Manchester side broke their previous record of 11 wins and two draws last weekend, when they beat Huddersfield 2-1 away from home.

Jose Mourinho's 2005/06 Chelsea side are tied with Manchester United's 2006/07 team for third, with both racking up a goal difference of 23 in their first 13 games. Those Blues and the Red Devils teams both picked up 11 wins, one draw and one loss in their first 13 matches.

Sir Alex Ferguson's 1993/94 United squad is fourth on the list, but only because of goal difference. That year, the Old Trafford club managed 11 wins, one draw and one loss in their first 13 games, with a goal difference of 17.
