Man City missed out on the chance to win the title at the weekend as a home defeat to Chelsea, coupled with a United win at Aston Villa, ensured Pep Guardiola’s men would have to wait a little longer.

Having already won the Carabao Cup this season, City will now turn their attentions to the Champions League Final on May 29 – against Chelsea – for the chance to complete the most successful campaign in the club’s history.
Rio Ferdinand previously joked that City’s potential treble will not be a ‘real’ treble like United’s 1999 haul of the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup, but City fans won’t care much if they end the season with three trophies.
