Manchester City won the treble last season under the management of Pep Guardiola.
The Cityzens had a remarkable 2022/23 campaign after winning the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup for the first time in the club’s history.
But the treble has taken a toll on the players and manager in this new campaign as Man City suffered two back-to-back defeats prior to the international break.
They were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup but managed to get back to winning ways after their 2-1 win over Brighton last weekend.
Pep Guardiola has admitted that winning the treble has taken a toll on his squad in this new campaign.
He said: “The treble had an influence on all of us, me included.
“So now we need to be there, close, month by month, to arrive in the final decision moments at the end of the season close to the opponents to try it again.
“I said many times, no-one has won four (Premier Leagues) in a row, never ever. That shows how difficult it is, but now it’s important to be there, especially in the Champions League, qualify for the next round in this period and after we can just focus on the Premier League. That is the target.”
