Club dominance

Last season, Manchester City etched their name in footballing history by achieving the coveted treble, securing the Premier League, FA Cup, and the coveted Champions League trophy.

Their Premier League triumph was a testament to their consistency as they fended off a strong challenge from Arsenal, eventually clinching the title with a comfortable lead.

The FA Cup also saw City emerge victorious, defeating their fierce rivals Manchester United in an entertaining final.

However, the crowning glory came in the Champions League as City finally secured a historic European crown, with solitary goal from midfielder Rodri proving to be enough to spark jubilation amongst the City faithful.

That memorable result completed the historic treble, solidifying City’s position as one of Europe’s most dominant forces and mirroring the legendary treble achieved by their local rivals Manchester United back in 1999.
