Key Highlights

Can City Keep on Track for an Unprecedented Back-to-Back Treble?

Manchester City’s recent winning streak in the Premier League was halted at Anfield when Liverpool held them to a 1-1 draw.

The result places Pep Guardiola’s side in third place on the table, one point behind tied leaders Arsenal and Liverpool with 64 points.

City will now focus on their FA Cup challenge as they welcome struggling Newcastle United.

Guardiola will be looking for a strong performance from his team to secure a spot in the semi-finals and keep their treble hopes alive.

Can Newcastle Bounce Back from the Defeat at Chelsea and Progress to the FA Cup Semi-Finals?
