Manchester City look unbeatable at the Etihad Stadium this season and with the goals flowing talk has started of them winning the quadruple; but with Barcelona to come in the Champions League and the Premier League tighter than ever can they really do it?
A 5-0 win at home for City last night against Blackburn brought their goal tally up to 99 already this season and saw them progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup, where they will face Watford in the next round and will be favourites to lift the trophy in May.
They look almost certain to win at least one trophy in Manuel Pellegrini’s first season in charge, with one final all but guaranteed following a 6-0 victory against West Ham in the semi-final first leg of the Capital One Cup.
The Premier League is still very much wide open with Arsenal just one point ahead of them and Chelsea one point behind them.
Their home form has been impeccable this season and with their away form vastly improving City look to be getting stronger. Undoubtedly they have the best squad in the league which could prove the difference at the end of the season.
Perhaps the hardest challenge facing them is their upcoming Champions League tie with Barcelona, in what is bound to be a fantastic game of attacking football.
The first leg of the last 16 is at the Etihad and with their unbelievable scoring record at home and Barcelona’s shaky defence you can’t help but feel that City will win here.
It won’t be easy with the likes of Messi and Neymar in town but City will be good value for money and it would be no surprise if they were to progress.
The way Man City are playing at the moment is unbelievable and with Aguero coming back from injury they are only going to get better and will be hard to beat.
