Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is tight-lipped as his team continues to perform well this season in the FA Cup, Premier League, and Champions League, and is not far from achieving a treble. The City might have things aligned this time, yet had to confront tough matches in the Champions League against Real Madrid and in the FA Cup Final against Manchester United. If they successfully manage to complete this season’s treble, Manchester City’s name will be engraved in history, consolidating a more significant position nationally and internationally, which is a position secured by very few.
Certain things have proven in favor of Manchester City over the season, starting with Erling Haaland who has secured 51 goals over many matches, in just 9 months of playing for the City. Under Guardiola’s leadership, Manchester has managed to keep important players like Kalvin Philips, Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker, and John Stones physically fit.
Guardiola’s team also faced several challenges, with players Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus signing with Arsenal. Joao Cancelo in January left on loan to Bayern Munich and Raheem Sterling left for Chelsea. Guardiola was left with limited options.
Will Manchester City Win The Treble?
There is a high probability as the City is merely nine games to win the treble. Though Guardiola has commented on a lesser possibility with Manchester United being the only one to do the treble in 1999. There are plans to fortify the team in the summer, as two midfielders are set to arrive for the City.
City’s win in the Premier League is one of the toughest football matches to qualify. The City is in a favorable position to win the treble, since 2019 over the last 5 years the City has at least reached the FA Cup semi-finals.
