Manchester City Quadruple may be Difficult but Treble is On

Man City has staked claim for quadruple in this season. Champions League victory can be little tough due to quality opposition. Treble is definitely on for Manchester City though. Sky Blues have reached to FA Cup final. They are trading blows with Premier League leaders Liverpool. They have already won EFL League Cup, also known as Carabao Cup. Pep Guardiola’s team is looking steady for three trophies in the 2018-19 season.

Manchester City beat Brighton & Hove Albion 1-0 in the semi final of the FA Cup on 6th April 2019 at Wembley Stadium, London. Gabriel Jesus was the only scorer of the match. Watford came from behind to win other semi final 3-2 in extra time against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Sky Blues and Watford F.C. will meet in 2019 FA Cup Final on 18th May 2019 at London’s Wembley Stadium. Five time champions Man City are favourites to bag FA Cup title over Watford who have never won this trophy before. Manchester City had last won FA Cup in 2011, while they made last appearance in final in 2013. Watford FC made their only final appearance in 1984.

Sky Blues and Liverpool are switching top position in the Premier League 2018-19 season. Liverpool are currently leading with 82 points from 33 matches. Manchester City are second with 80 points from 32 games. Man City have won Premiership on three occasions. Liverpool are 18-time first division champions in English football history. But they have never won Premier League from its start in 1992. Defending champions Manchester City are favourites though as they have won their all three EPL trophies in this decade.

Champions League seems the weak link for Man City though. They have lost first leg of the UCL quarter final by 1-0 against Tottenham Hotspur. Pep Guardiola’s side is capable of making a comeback from loosing situation. A strong performance in second leg at City of Manchester Stadium will improve chances of winning the UEFA Champions League trophy for Manchester City. Good point is that low scoring first leg means less work in the second leg for Sky Blues.
