Manchester City are the reigning Premier League Champions. In 2019/20, City finished second. Can they stop Liverpool from winning 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: 6 times
  • FA Cup Winners: 6 times
  • League Cup Winners: 7 times
  • European Cup Winners’ Cup: Winners 1969/70
  • Premier League best finish: Winners in 2011/12, 2013/14, 2017/18 & 2018/19.

Sergio Aguero is Manchester City's all-time top scorer!

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:

Riyad Mahrez

City’s biggest summer transfer was Riyad Mahrez’s £60 million move from Leicester City. The Algerian winger arrives as a Premier League winner with Leicester and will add skill and pace to either side of the pitch. Ia Mahrez can perform in the same way as he did for Leicester in their Premier League winning campaign, City have another match-winner in the team. 

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 was voted PFA Young Player of the Year last season and at 22 years old has his best years in front of him. Sterling scored a career-high 31 goals last season.

Kevin De Bruyne

De Bruyne was many people’s Player of the Season in 2017/18 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 17 Premier League goals last season, more than any Premier League player.

Kevin De Bruyne is a key player.

The era of Manchester CIty

Manchester City won the Premier League last season for the second time in a row 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 Sergio Aguero with 21 Premier League goals, who has now won the Premier League four times with City.

City celebrate with the Premier League trophy.

I can't understand those who don't like Man City for their politics,the way they spend money for so-called 'average' players and so on.They say Manchester City has no history,but it's being written now!Sure they can win season 2016/2017!It's highly-likely!

Correct me. With all due respect,I think Man City will not win this season,if Guardiolla uses the Tici Taca,This is going to kill the entertainment of playing and it will be so boring,if he uses the attacking style,City can battle for the title this season.I prefer Liverpool,Chelsea and Man United to win the title this season.I prefer United(our rivals)because they have Mourinho who had won the tile several times,with players like Zlatan and Mukhtarin they can do it and grab the title.I prefer Chelsea because the signed with a successful manager like Conte,and it looks like he will use the deffensive formation 3-5-2 this year,after signing Kante from Leicester.I prefer Liverpool not because they are my favourite club,but they have klopp,and with Klopp you will believe in the team,and signing Mane and Winaldum is really nice,but wemust sign with another deffender,Kolo Toure left to Celtic and Sako had problems with Klopp this week so he may leave.YNWA.

Hi Assemjuve

With all due respect, I think Man City will not win this season. If Guardiolla uses the Tici Taca, This  it is going to kill the entertainment of playing and it will be so really boring. If he uses the an attacking style, City can battle for the title this season. I would prefer(1) Liverpool, Chelsea or Man United to win the title this season. I prefer United (our rivals) because they have Mourinho who had won the tile several times, with players like Zlatan and Mukhtarin they can do it and grab the title. I prefer Chelsea because the they have signed with a successful manager like Conte, and it looks like he will use the a defensive formation 3-5-2 this year, after signing Kante from Leicester.(2) I prefer Liverpool not because they are my favourite club, but because they have Klopp, and with Klopp you will can believe in the team,and signing Mane and Winaldum is really nice, but we must sign with another defender, Kolo Toure left to Celtic and Sako had problems with Klopp this week so he may leave.YNWA.

1. I think that the verb prefer is not quite right here. I think I have heard it used in the way that you are using it, but I can't find any definition online that matches. To express the same meaning, I would say: I think it is more likely that Liverpool, Chelsea or Manchester United will win. You could use the verb fancy: I fancy Liverpool to win because... But I'm not sure of the register - I think it's quite informal. 

2. Your sentences are a bit long and have too many clauses. It would be much easier to read your sentences if they were broken up a bit.

I think you've made some good points here. It's going to be really interesting to see how the new managers in Manchester take on the Premier League!

I don't like very much Man. City because they have too much money and for my opinion they are artificial club. While they have a rich boss ,they will have a results. I really can't understand why they don't have a results in Champions league...when they can't 2 times pass the group round and a think twice time they lost against Barcelona in last 16, but I think that have 2 reasons. First is that they can't have a best team in europe over the night,and second reason is that I think that almost all english premier clubs are more important to win Premier league than Champions league

The way Man.City won their 1st title after a long time is smth that happens once in a lifetime. But, sincerelly I don't like how they spend their money and buy new players every year. They should make new players and not only buy the best players from all around the world. Financial fair play will fix that in the future. I'm pretty sure in that.
