Together we did it

HISTORY MAKERS: Pep Guardiola and Nick Cushing line up alongside their two squads with the Continental and Carabao Cups proudly on display
Manchester City’s men’s and women’s first teams created their own slice of history earlier this year.

Within the space of a little over 30 hours on a memorable weekend in late February, City’s women and men lifted the Continental Cup and Carabao Cup respectively.

First, Nick Cushing’s squad secured the Continental Cup after a dramatic 4-2 victory in a penalty shoot-out over Arsenal at Bramall Lane.

The following day, Pep Guardiola’s side followed suit, overcoming Chelsea 4-3 after another tense encounter went to penalties at Wembley.

Now, we have brought the two squads together in order to celebrate their superb achievements.

Managers Pep Guardiola and Nick Cushing and their squads shared tales and smiles as they linked up alongside chief club photographer Victoria Haydn for our exclusive group picture.

And City’s men and women could now go on to create yet more history this season with both still very much in contention to land what would be a unique domestic treble.

Each have made it through to the FA Cup semi-finals with Pep's side playing Brighton and Hove Albion at Wembley on Saturday April 6th and City’s Women playing host to Chelsea in the last four at the Academy Stadium on Sunday, April 14th.

The two sides are also vying for league title success with Nick Cushing’s squad currently two points clear at the top of the FA Women’s Super League from Arsenal though the Gunners do have two games in hand.

City’s men, meanwhile, are currently in second place in the Premier League, just two points behind leaders Liverpool and with a game in hand.

Furthermore, the Blues are also through to the Champions League quarter-finals where we face a last eight assignment against Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur next month.

So there could yet be more reasons to celebrate what is shaping up to be a historic and memorable season for the Club.
