Other than Celtic, no other British team has ever won a quadruple, with England’s dominant sides always falling short. The achievement of winning all four possible trophies in England seems near enough impossible. Manchester United came closest in their treble winning season in 1998/99 – winning the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup. However, it is only in recent years that the bigger clubs have started taking the League Cup more seriously.
Manchester City succeeded in winning a double last season after lifting both Premier League and League Cup trophies. Their Champions League dream was demolished by the high-flying Liverpool who lost in the final to Real Madrid.
While lesser opposition in the shape of Wigan stunned them in the fifth round of the FA Cup in the previous year, this season, City have already successfully retained the Carabao Cup. Add an extra year of experience they will feel they have real chance of doing the impossible.
Manchester City to win English Premier League 2018/19 @ 8/15 – BET NOW
Manchester City won the Premier League in scintillating style last season, reaching 100 points and scoring 106 goals. Throughout the campaign they were comfortable and were rarely put under any pressure by the chasing pack.
Even after suffering losses to Liverpool and Manchester United, they still finished the season with the highest points in Premier League history.
A disappointing Christmas period saw City register three losses in a short space of time against Crystal Palace, Leicester and Newcastle – all teams they would expect to beat. At the time it looked like those three games could have cost them the title, but a win against Liverpool in the New Year opened the door again.
Despite Liverpool being two points clear of City at the top of the table, City’s game in-hand makes them 8/15 favourites.
City’s main advantage over Liverpool seems to be their squad’s strength in depth compared to their main challengers. With excellent rotation of their squad they have managed to get results in all competitions throughout the season.
Manchester City to win FA Cup 2018/19 @ 2/9 – BET NOW
The FA Cup has proved to be a relatively difficult competition for City in their current successful years, with their most recent FA Cup trophy coming in 2011. This was the first time they have lifted the cup since a win 1-0 over Leicester in 1969.
City came back from 2-0 down to beat Swansea in a tough last-16 match, making them the only top-six team remaining in the competition. After beating Brighton in the semi-finals at Wembley, City are now due to face surprise finalist Watford.
This is after Deulofeu inspired an incredible comeback from 2-0 down to win 3-2 after extra-time against Wolves in the other semi-final. Even after The Hornet’s heroics, City are in poll position to win both domestic cups on offer this season.
Manchester City to win Champions League @ 9/4 – BET NOW
Their toughest test this season will be trying to win the illusive Champions League trophy. City have found the competition to be a step too far on a few occasions now. Their best effort came in 2016 when they lost narrowly 1-0 on aggregate to Real Madrid in the semi-finals.
Nevertheless, it feels like City have improved in Europe under Guardiola and are making steps in the right direction towards the magical Champions League trophy. They also come into it on the back of a hugely fruitful campaign where they dominated English football. This could be their best chance to win Europe’s elite competition for some time.
Drawing Tottenham in the last-16 boosts their chances of going all the way, as they will now avoid Liverpool until the final (if both teams progress through), who have proven to be a problem for them in recent seasons. There are no easy games in the latter stages of the Champions League, however City’s luck of the draw puts them in a good position to make it to the final in Madrid.
