Winning the Premier League and League Cup in the same season is a familiar combination for City fans, having done so on three different occasions. Firstly in 2013/14 when they beat Liverpool to the league title, as well as winning the League Cup final against Sunderland 3-1 at Wembley where second-half goals by Yaya Toure, Samir Nasri and Jesus Navas overcame the Wearside club’s resistance after Fabio Borini’s shock opener in the first half.
City also achieved this feat in 2017/18 where they beat Arsenal 3-0 in the final, having won the league on 100 points, 19 clear of Manchester United in second, as well as in 2018/19 when they became the first team in English football to win all four domestic trophies including the Community Shield.
City are already in the final of the League Cup as stated above, having beaten rivals United 2-0 in the semi-finals at Old Trafford thanks to goals from John Stones and Fernandinho. This win means that the Citizens will face Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur in the final in late April, with Spurs aiming to win their first trophy since 2008, whilst City are looking to win their sixth league cup in the last eight seasons.
With City in a good position in the league title race, as well as already being in the final of a competition that they have an impressive record in, they are priced at 11/10 to complete this feat for a fourth time in eight seasons.
