Together we did it: Behind the scenes

To celebrate Manchester City’s Continental and Carabao Cup successes, our men’s and women’s teams linked up for a special joint team photograph earlier this month.

It followed a memorable weekend in late February, where City’s women and men lifted the Continental Cup and Carabao Cup respectively within the space of 30 hours.

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.

And to mark the occasion, we brought the two squads together in order to celebrate their superb achievements.

Here’s how the players lined up:

BACK ROW (left to right): Philippe Sandler, Kyle Walker, Janine Beckie, Aymeric Laporte, Steph Houghton, Daniel Grimshaw, Ellie Roebuck, Claudio Bravo, Karen Bardsley, Ederson, Fran Stenson, Aro Muric, Jill Scott, Vincent Kompany, Jen Beattie, John Stones, Danilo
