Last season was filled with disappointments for City as they defended just 1 of their 3 domestic trophies and also, despite focusing their main energy on a successful Champions League campaign, they again stumbled at the quarterfinal hurdle in this competition. Defensive weaknesses the main reasons for the misfortunes. So far, the most important departures from the squad are captain David Silva and explosive winger Sane. Guardiola smartly addressed the issues in defence, though, and big money was paid to sign Ake, who is expected to see lots of playing time. No other big transfers as of yet but, with the transfer window open until October, City are likely to add at least 1-2 big names to their ranks soon. Right now Lionel Messi is heavily linked with them! It seems that after Ake’s arrival Guardiola is preparing to mix things a lot more at City, with this new signing expected to allow a 3-man backline to be in place in some games. In terms of tactics the aggressive counter-pressing and high back line will undoubtedly remain features of City’s displays. The biggest strength remain the forward actions, especially with Jesus expected to have his first season as first-choice leader of the attack, ahead of club legend Aguero. Jesus will be very eager to impress and City should be scoring goals with ease once more. Hard to see many weaknesses right now, especially if Ake settles in defence quickly and the team’s best centre-back Laporte manages to avoid serious injuries, he missed more than half of last season.

Target


Only goal is to reclaim the title and also to finally reach the elusive Champions League final. Capable to win it all, especially if the health of all key players remains good.

Season Review
2019/2020

№2: Manchester City

Despite remaining the highest scoring team in the Premier League, 102 goals in 38 rounds, Man City failed to defend their title for the simple reason that they lacked depth in defence and their best centre-back, Laporte, missed 22 games injured. The title was probably lost as early as late August when Laporte was seriously injured in round 4 and missed the next 17 matches. In his absence City never looked comfortable defensively. Going forward the Sky Blues remained ruthless and very effective with Aguero, Sterling, Jesus and De Bruyne having memorable campaigns. Aguero became City’s all-time top goalscorer, Jesus had his first 20+ goal season, Sterling his first 30+ goal season and De Bruyne equalled the Premier League’s record for most assists in single campaign. The lack of defensive depth proved the main weakness, with midfielder Fernandinho definitely not comfortable in role despite his best efforts. The other weakness was in head-to-head matches vs title rivals – City lost both Manchester derbies, only exchanged wins vs Chelsea and Liverpool and also earned just 1 point in 2 games vs Tottenham. Despite the huge fee paid for him last summer, Joao Cancelo failed to impress in his first year in England. That said Rodri, Gundogan and Foden deserve praise and City have by far the strongest midfield line in the league right now. Hungry for titles and with Guardiola deciding to extend his stay at the club, City will definitely want top spot next term. The fact that City have by far the best squad depth should also play into their hands in what will undoubtedly be a COVID-affected 2020/21 season.
