Can Man City win the Quadruple in 2019/20?
Peps Man City have won the League the last two seasons having ammassed more pionts over 2 seasons than any side before them, they are odds on to win it again and at around 4/6 one could argue there’s some value.
They have also won the League Cup the last two seasons where their almost embarrassing strength in depth has shone through, with players chomping at the bit to get in the side and impressing to win this first trophy to be given out. Their FA Cup campaign of 17/18 was ended by a massive shock at Wigan in the 5th round, aided somewhat by a red card and the Champions League Campaign that year was ended by Liverpool who were the better side in the Quarter final. This season City avoided an upset in the FA Cup to win in imperious fashion, won 14 straight games to win the Premier League, and we’re denied a Champions League Semi Final berth by the narrowest of margins in a wacky tie against Tottenham.
Both of the last two seasons they touched single figure odds to win the Quadruple, with them going somewhere around 5/1 this season.
Its hard to see where the others are going to catch up at this point, Liverpool are very close but the sense is that they are performing at their limit, whereas City have arguably had their best player out for most of the season (De Bruyne) and have more depth. With Pep Guardiola having committed to another two seasons it seems very likely that the City will remain dominant and could easily give a very decent run to Quadruple backers once again.
We have backed this at 50/1 and lost the last two seasons to small money, and of course there remains the fact that it is a very difficult and unlikely task that would mean something like a 64 match season. But I am at least as confident as in previous seasons that it will give us a run and at over 100/1 it’s not so much a question of whether they can do it, but at what price should it be, and for me it shouldn’t be a treble figure price. You might want to wait a couple of weeks after the season is actually finished to see if anyone offers a bigger price, but Ladbrokes are going 80/1 and I’m happy enough with the 125/1 Skybet are offering.
