What a week it’s been here at City!
Two League Cup trophies in one weekend, plus a place in the FA Youth Cup semi-final and U18 Premier League Cup final – it’s been busy!
Here, we take a look at some of our favourite things that have caught our eye over the past seven days.
Double Cup delight
What an incredible weekend for the club! Saturday saw Nick Cushing’s side lift the Continental Cup at Bramhall Lane for the fourth time, while Pep Guardiola’s men secured a penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea to secure the Carabao Cup on Sunday.
Here are a few of our favourite moments from the weekend…
A word from our skippers!
Unbelievable day!— Steph Houghton MBE (@stephhoughton2) February 23, 2019
What a group of players and staff! We worked so hard for this! More to come!
Two teams, two penalty shoot-outs, one club.
Bernardo was awarded Man Of The Match in the final but his interview was gatecrashed by a certain someone… Guess who?!
Sergio Aguero was serving up the dance moves after the win… as usual!
Wednesday marked Pablo Zabaleta’s return to the Etihad as we faced West Ham in the Premier League. As usual, Zaba received a warm welcome!
Thank you Man City fans for the great reception 👏👏 I love you 💙 pic.twitter.com/4Ia9pKevUh— Pablo Zabaleta (@pablo_zabaleta) February 27, 2019
Just a week after reaching the final of the Premier League Cup thanks to a derby day win at the Academy, our young Blues booked their place in the FA Youth Cup semi-finals. Gareth Taylor’s side impressed as they sealed an emphatic 4-1 win over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium in the last eight. Well done, boys!

What a superb performance from our young Blues tonight! Goals from Nmecha, Garcia, Dele-Bashiru and Knight sealed the win for us at the Vitality Stadium! 💪

Keeping it real
From one set of Academy stars to another… Ederson paid a visit to our Under-7 elite ‘keepers recently and it’s fair to say they were very happy about it!

Christmas come early (or late?!)
While most of us may have taken our Christmas decorations down months ago, Bernardo Silva seems to still be in the festive spirit!
The Portuguese ace shared a picture of his Christmas tree in his flat... in FEBRUARY!
We couldn’t leave this out of City Social! The video speaks for itself…
Raheem Sterling recently sent a letter to an aspiring young footballer who was racially abused at school. Well, the pair met up at our FA Cup clash against Newport County, where Raheem was able to offer advice plus a signed shirt.
Remember the boy that @sterling7 sent a letter to after he was racially abused at school? He was at the Newport v City match on Saturday and met Sterling after the final whistle. Sterling gave him a signed shirt & more advice. Read about it here: https://t.co/D2oQL3NHQs— Paul Hirst (@hirstclass) February 18, 2019
