Manchester City won the treble last season and wants to keep up the good pace during this season
Manchester City triumphed in the Manchester Derby against Manchester United last weekend. Pep Guardiola’s side were in need of a win against an important and relevant team after losing two key Premier League games to Wolverhampton and Arsenal. With these results, the Citizen team lost the lead of the Premier League, which meant cause for concern for fans.
Undoubtedly, despite the fact that many question Manchester City, the team has shown that it knows how to overcome difficulties and adversity. Just like last season when Arsenal were the favourites to win the league. Nevertheless, after not being able to keep up with the Citizens, The Gunners did not have their best end to the season and made it easier for the Manchester team to emerge champions.
One of the great criticisms of the fan towards the Premier League is that Manchester City has total hegemony in England. In the same way, Pep Guardiola’s good approach season after season has served to consolidate the team at the Etihad Stadium as one of the best teams in Europe and above all one of the best teams in the Premier League.
Despite the fact that criticism always revolves around Erling Haaland’s team, things have gone for the best not only on a collective level but also on an individual level. At the moment, the players can boast that they had a phenomenal year last season where they were able to win the treble. Now, at the Ballon d’Or gala, many came close to matching Haaland himself in the top 10 nominees.
