Manchester City News: That wild ending describes what the Premier League is all about. Pressure, perseverance, and performance. The immense competition, and City’s habit of silencing the competition, are simply amazing!
Pep Guardiola was dancing up and down the sidelines as Manchester City found themselves down 2-0 against Villa. Liverpool needed a goal to win and it felt as if Gerrard’s men might have done enough.
On comes Gundogan, the man the hero. In a span of mere 5 minutes, Manchester City scored 3 goals against Aston Villa reclaiming their advantage in the title run. That’s how dangerous this team is.
Once they click they are almost impossible to stop and let’s just say there are scarce occasions when they don’t! Liverpool did their bit but in the end, it turned out exactly like the 18-19 season, City found a way.

The club was doing well even before Guardiola’s arrival. One could argue that he is the one thing that makes City special. But that answer would still be incomplete. Would it be the Investment?
All those great names, high flyers on the bench, they’re bound to win right? But that’s not it either. Chelsea and United are prime examples of the fact that spending money does not make you great.
Perhaps it is the togetherness in the club. The way they train in form of games, how each player shows up exactly when his team needs. Perhaps it’s Pep’s ability to identify exactly the right character for his dressing room.
From a managerial point of view, he has done a brilliant job in keeping everyone hungry and motivated. Credit goes to the players too, each and every one of them contributed at key moments for the team.
And now they get to celebrate for all the sweat they’ve shed. Another successful title defense for Manchester City, they’re now the only club who’ve managed to do that since Sir Alex’s departure.
All eyes on the future! City would certainly target the Champions League
If anything City would probably not be contempt with their performance in the Champions League. As per the Mail, in the 5 years of Pep’s reign, City has managed to win the Premier League 4 times.
It looks like he cracked the code for the Premier League. The Champions League although remains a different quest. City has managed to reach the Final and the Semifinal almost every time.
Although, the trophy still remains out of their hands. Erling Haaland could change all that. The Norwegian desires’ to align with the club. He too wants to shine on the biggest platform Europe has to offer.
With Haaland available at Pep’s disposal, Manchester City will reach for the stars. It might be Pep’s last season with the club and we will definitely want to win it all and cap it off in style!
