Manchester City are the reigning Premier League Champions. City finished 12 points clear of second-placed Manchester United in 2020/21 and with players such as Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish the Manchester team are among the favourites to win the title again.

 

  • Stadium: The City of Manchester Stadium 
  • Stadium Capacity: 55,097
  • Location: Manchester
  • Founded: 1880
  • Nickname: City
  • Manager: Pep Guardiola
  • Kit: Sky blue shirts and shorts with white socks 

Manchester City was formed in 1880 but had different names until they became Manchester City in 1894. City have played in the top division for most of their history but they did fall down to the third level as recently as 1999. City’s most successful periods have been in the late 1960s and the last ten years when they have won both League and Cup titles. Here are the highlights:

  • League Champions: 7 times
  • FA Cup Winners: 6 times
  • League Cup Winners: 8 times
  • European Cup Winners’ Cup: Winners 1969/70
  • Premier League best finish: Winners in 2011/12, 2013/14, 2017/18, 2018/19 & 2020/21

Manchester City's Raheem Sterling.

The Manager

Josep 'Pep' Guardiola, had lots of success managing Bayern Munich in Germany and Barcelona in Spain before he moved to Manchester City in 2016. Since his arrival, he has taken City to the Premier League trophy and transformed the club into one of the best in Europe. Guardiola is regarded as one of the best managers in the game. 

Pep Guardiola is City's manager.

Three to Watch

Here are three Manchester City players to keep an eye on in the Premier League this season:

Jack Grealish

City’s biggest summer transfer has been Jack Grealish’s £100 million move from Aston Villa. The English winger will add skill and pace to either side of the pitch. If Grealish can perform in the same way as he did for Villa in recent seasons, City will be very difficult to stop. 

Riyad Mahrez has moved to Manchester from Leicester City.

Raheem Sterling

Sterling is another winger who is great to watch. Sterling is fast and skilful with an eye for goal. He has been voted as PFA Young Player of the Year and at 23 years old has his best years in front of him. Sterling has scored over a hundred goals for Manchester City.

Raheem Sterling has scored over 100 goals for Manchester City.

Kevin De Bruyne

De Bruyne was many people’s Player of the Season as he helped City cruise to the title. The midfielder’s ability to unlock a defence is second to none and he also can hit a wonderful free--kick. De Bruyne set up plenty of Premier League goals last season and will no doubt be amongst the goals again this season.

Kevin De Bruyne is a key player for City.

The era of Manchester CIty

Manchester City won the Premier League last season for the fifth time and have broken many Premier League records along the way. Some of the records they have broken include: most points, most goals, most wins, most consecutive wins, most points ahead of second place and best goal difference. Manchester City’s top scorer was Ilkay Gundogan.

Manchester City celebrate winning the Premier League.

Man City is at the top of my lists every weekend. I love to see their attacking football and the quality of their top players. Pep Guardiola had succesfully managed to adapt "Tik Taka" to english football, playing with higher speed and intensity, searching for the back of the nets every single minute. And as a brazilian, I'm always looking for Gabriel Jesus's performances. I think he will replace Sergio Aguero brilliantly.

Nowadays City is one of the best teams in the world. That because does great contracts. All city's players are world-class and also the manager is good. This season, they haven't had a big start. I think they will reach third or fourth place, I don't believe that they can win the premier league cup.

i like city just because i loved oasis very much.Nowaday I became fans of the team because I like when the people sing the oasis chants in the stadium. i like to see the skills of Aguero and de Bruyne when they play but this season Liverpool played very sensational. I think the city must prepare everything better to be a stronger contender next season

Manchester City is a very successful team in the recent year as they have some of the best players in the world and arguably the best manager.
My favourite City players are Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva because they play at the same position and style as mine.
Good luck to Manchester city and their fans.

This is T-Goromaru writing from Japan. It has been a pleasure to be a City fan in recent years. For me, a very beginning of being a City supporter was the moment I was fascinated by a brilliant build-up and the combination goal from City players in 2011-12 season. It was "Wow!" moment, then I was like "I'll support this team." I liked Samir Nasri at that time.
It has been a little bit difficult so far this 2019-20 season, but I'll keep my eye on the current circumstances because sometimes you've got to accept to experience a tough time. Perhaps you are laughing if I say "this is the tough time" because even CIty will be in still Top 4 in Premier League. I still don't know the real tough time when your team is in a situation like relegated or bankrupted or sucking a manager in an early stage, something like that. Basically, I'm so lucky enough to support this strong team which has shown me great success almost every season, since  I started supporting. I hope that we'll enjoy this era for many years to come. Come on City.

Hi,

We are Paul and Michal from Torun in Poland. I love Manchester City because they are one of my favourite teams in the world. My favourite player is Raheem Sterling, he has fast, has nice dribbles, and can shoot and pass very well. I watched the match against Queens Park Rangers when Manchester City won 3-2! They won the Premier League! I think Manchester City will win 1-3 away to Leicester tomorrow. I also think they will beat Feyenoord 3-0 in the Champions League. I think Aguero, De Bruyne and Sterling will score in both matches. I think they will be Huddersfield away 0-1. I think Leroy Sane from Germany will score!

The reason of my preference is the Manchester city coach.
I used to see the FCBarcelona maches when "Pep" wos the Barcelona's coach.
In my opinion Pep Guardiola is the best coach I've never seen and I'm very hapy for his achievements

I don't have favourite player in MC because i think game won not only one person, they won all of team players and coaching staff and personnel of team. But i know popular players: Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Yaya Toure, Edin Dzeko and other good players who play for this club. One of the best games are games with Liverpool and MC. In this season 17/18 we can sow two perfect games. At last game MC lost game 4-1 till 84 min , but they have chance to drawn the game thanked to goals Bernardo Silva 84' and Ilkay Gundogan 90'. Thay lost but they fight. It was very good play.

Why i love Man City? Main reason - Pep Gwardiola. Secondly, i like to see skills of some player, for example David Silva, Yaya Toure ect.

Man City is one of my favorite clubs. I like their game style and that they can score a winning goal at last minutes of the match. My favorite City player is Aguero. He is one of the best forwards nowadays. I have seen a lot of City matches, but unfortunately no one at the stadium. I think they have all chances to win this season, but I hope they will finish at least second.
