Manchester City badge

Manchester City are the reigning Premier League Champions. In 2018/19, City won the league for a second consecutive season. Can another team stop City 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: 5 times
  • FA Cup Winners: 5 times
  • League Cup Winners: 5 times
  • European Cup Winners’ Cup: Winners 1969/70
  • Premier League best finish: Winners in 2011/12, 2013/14 & 2017/18

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.

Leroy Sane

Sane is another winger who is great to watch. Sane 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. Sane scored 10 and made 15 assists in just 32 starts 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.

Prediction 2019/20: 2nd

Manchester will be looking to retain their title and they are certainly amongst the favourites if not the favourite to win the Premier League title again. However, we think that this season will be close again and City might find this season a little bit more difficult. We wouldn’t be surprised to see City claim the trophy once again, but we think City will have to settle for the runners-up spot this season.

You should :)
I have one suggestion for you. I think that you could create one new tab as part of the My profile, next to View and Edit cards.
That card should contain all comments that we leave about some topics and I think that could be
simpler way to discuss with other learners and teachers (we do not need to go on some subject to see are you answer to as).
I think that is easier way to build better communications between participants.

What happens with my proposal?
Is it possible that something be done?
I think it would improve the lot of interaction between participants.
