It has been a season to remember in every sense for Manchester City with the Club’s sides enjoying unprecedented success at all levels.
Pep Guardiola’s men’s team have made English history by becoming the first team to win all four domestic trophies in one campaign.
And it has also been a season of huge success for both Manchester City’s women’s side and our Under-18s too.
Here’s a breakdown of their magnificent achievements after a campaign that will never be forgotten:
Community Shield: Chelsea 0-2 City – August 5th, 2018
Manchester City claimed the first silverware of the new season with a comfortable 2-0 win over Chelsea in the Community Shield.
A Sergio Aguero double was enough to give Pep Guardiola’s side the win at Wembley and so get the season off to the best possible start.
Carabao Cup: Chelsea 0-0 City (City win 4-3 on penalties) – February 24th, 2019
Raheem Sterling’s emphatic penalty gave City a dramatic shootout victory against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup Final after both normal and extra time had remained goalless.
It was a hard-fought clash but City kept our nerve when it mattered to ensure that we retained the Carabao Cup we had lifted 12 months earlier against Arsenal.
Premier League: Brighton 1-4 City – May 12th, 2019
City became the first team to retain the Premier League title in a decade when we beat Brighton 4-1 at the Amex Stadium on the final day of the season.
There was a nervy first half hour, especially after Glenn Murray’s near-post header put the Seagulls ahead, but we fought back with goals from Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte, Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan to ensure we edged out Liverpool by a point after a titanic battle.
FA Cup: City 6-0 Watford – May 18th, 2019
Goals from David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and a brace apiece from Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling saw City overwhelm Watford 6-0 in the FA Cup final and so complete an historic domestic clean sweep to create English history.
The dominant display also equaled a 116-year record for the largest-ever winning margin in the FA Cup final.
Continental Cup – Arsenal 0-0 City Women (City win 4-2 on penalties) February 23rd, 2019
Goalkeeper Karen Bardsley emerged as the penalty shootout hero as her two crucial penalty saves helped City pick up our first silverware of the season in a tense Continental Cup final at Bramall Lane.
Janine Beckie’s confident spot-kick secured a well-deserved win for Nick Cushing’s side, and ensured we got revenge on the Gunners after they had beaten us in the 2018 final.
FA Cup – City Women 3-0 West Ham United Women – May 4th, 2019
City women completed a domestic cup double thanks to a convincing 3-0 FA Cup Final win over West Ham in front of a crowd of over 43,000 at Wembley.
Keira Walsh broke the Hammers’ resistance early in the second half before late strikes from Georgia Stanway and Lauren Hemp added further gloss to the score-line and set the seal on a magnificent twin cup campaign.
Under-18 Premier League Cup – Middlesbrough 0-1 City March 14th, 2019
City’s youngsters secured the Under-18 Premier League Cup with a hard-fought but deserved win at the Riverside Stadium.
Felix Nmecha was the match-winner for Gareth Taylor’s youngsters, firing home from an acute angle early in the second half to finally ensure our dominance paid off and so round off a memorable cup campaign.
Taylor’s charges also made their way through to the FA Youth Cup final at the end of the April but suffered a heart-breaking 4-3 loss on penalties to Liverpool after the sides had been tied at 1-1 after normal and extra time.
