Erling Haaland has drawn level with Vincent Kompany for Premier League goals against the Big Six, with Kevin de Bruyne closing the chasm to Sergio Aguero.

The podium positions are pretty obvious but there is room for legends such as Jesus Navas and Martin Demichelis, as well as the rogue inclusion of some fella called Frank Lampard. They are among this list of every player to have scored for Manchester City in Premier League matches against Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham since the start of the 2010/11 season – the first in which they comprised the top six.
