For if City win at Crystal Palace in Sunday's New Year's Eve fixture, it would be their 19th Premier League win in a row, matching the all-time record victory sequence in any of the top five European leagues, set by Bayern Munich in 2013-14 .Palace will not go into the match as tamely as Rafa Benitez's Newcastle United Wednesday when they lost only 1-0 thanks to City's generous Yuletide profligacy.Still, the man who has spent around 300 million pounds ($405.6 million) on new players in 18 months may just have enough firepower to dispose of Southampton Saturday, even if he says he cannot afford to give a rest to Romelu Lukaku, who has scored only four goals in his last 19 United games.
