Manchester City needed a penalty shoot-out to see off Chelsea in the final of the Carabao Cup and earn for themselves their first piece of silverware this season, however Pep Guardiola will have his eye on greater things with the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup all within his grasp. Indeed the bookmakers have the Citizens marked as favourites on all three of these fronts and it looks highly unlikely that Guardiola’s side will fail to add to their trophy cabinet once again before the end of the season.
Manchester City have won each of their last eight games across all competitions and they have made it through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup where will lock horns with Championship side Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. Clearly Guardiola’s main priority will be the Champions League and Premier League and as such he may well be tempted to field a somewhat second-string team for this FA Cup meeting with the Swans. Nevertheless even a depleted City side will almost certainly be too much for the Championship outfit and we firmly believe that a one-sided encounter will end with a clear Manchester City win and with it a place in the last four of the competition.
Man City are 4/5 with William Hill Bookmakers to win the FA Cup this season, ahead of 10/3 shots Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men enjoying a tremendous run under their interim boss. Indeed having fought their way back from 2-0 down in their two-legged tie with PSG in the Champions League, United will likely be City’s main threat when it comes to winning a domestic double this season.
