Manchester City are four wins from regaining the Premier League title, and it also looks like the Cityzens will never get a better chance to go on and grab the quadruple.
Pep Guardiola’s side are closing in on reclaiming their league crown from Liverpool and could yet add a domestic cup double, as well as the Champions League trophy that has so far eluded them.
Manchester City have a 14-point lead over Manchester United at the top of the Premier League, though their closest rivals have a game in hand. If United were to win that, and given City have a far superior goal difference, 11 points would effectively seal the title. Four wins would make sure – and that would presume United continue to win all their games.
Before any Premier League coronation, City will hope to have another cup in the cabinet. Manchester City kept alive their hopes of winning a fourth consecutive Carabao Cup after beating rivals Manchester United in the semis. City have also booked a Wembley date in the FA Cup.
After beating Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 on aggregate to reach the Champions League quarter-finals, City will continue their pursuit of Europe’s elite club trophy against another Bundesliga side in Borussia Dortmund. Guardiola’s men will take on Dortmund and in-form Erling Haaland across two legs.
Come through that tie and City would face another heavyweight opponent – Bayern Munich or Paris Saint-Germain – for a place in the final. City have exited at the quarter-final stage in this competition for the past three seasons, but will be desperate to line up at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul on May 29.
With that, the quadruple is very much possible for City. The Premier League is theirs, and they have a very good chance for the FA Cup. Tottenham may cause them a problem, but City also look set to win the League Cup.
The Champions League is the one that’s always the most difficult for Guardiola’s men. In the Champions League, there’s always a team that can do what Manchester United did to City a few weeks ago. They are good enough, they’ve got the talent and they’ve got the squad depth. It doesn’t look like City will ever get a better chance.
