Pep Guardiola says it will be "an honour" when he gets the win he needs to become the most successful manager in Manchester City's history.

Guardiola is level with legendary City boss Les McDowall on 220 victories.

McDowall was City manager for 592 games and Guardiola will only be taking charge for the 303rd time - 37 behind another famous club figure Joe Mercer - when his side face Chelsea on Saturday.

"I cannot deny it will be an honour," said Guardiola, 50.

"Hopefully we do it sooner rather than later."

Guardiola has already won more trophies than any other manager in the club's history.

His eight major honours are twice the number won by Mercer, who is next on the list. McDowall, who was manager from 1950 to 1963, was responsible for a single FA Cup win in 1956.
