Manchester City are arguably the most feared team in the Premier League as Pep Guardiola has built a well-oiled machine capable of churning out results week in week out. The Premier League Champions have been able to build on last season performances as they look to win an unprecedented quadruple.
Possessing a squad full of world-class talent Pep has an enviable choice of players to choose from as he attempts to win all four trophies. However, the Spanish tactician has told his players to forget about winning the quadruple. According to Guardiola, it is possible for his team to lose all three titles within a week.
He prefers to take each game one at a time as he seeks to boost his team’s chances of winning all competitions. Winning the quadruple is difficult as it requires luck, consistency and the ability to pick the right moments in matches. This is why no team has been able to achieve this accomplishment in the history of the Premier League.
Even the legendary Manchester United treble team were three minutes from losing the Champions League final before the late rally for the famous victory at the Nou Camp against Bayern Munich.
Pep Guardiola would be delighted that he has a full squad to choose from as they enter the pivotal period of the season. Kevin de Bruyne, Fernandinho and John Stones have recovered from injuries and could feature in the match against Cardiff City on Wednesday.
If Manchester City can defeat Brighton in the FA Cup Semifinal in the weekend that could be the next step towards creating history.
