In reality, he claims Guardiola’s males can win one other home treble – beginning with the Carabao Cup in April.
City booked their place in a FOURTH consecutive Carabao Cup ultimate on Wednesday night time with a cushty 2-Zero win of their semi-final towards Manchester United.
The Blues haven’t tasted defeat within the cup since 2016 – it’s even been advised the competitors must be renamed ‘The Etihad Cup’ – and can face Tottenham and previous rival Jose Mourinho within the ultimate on April 25.
John Stones starred with a uncommon aim to set City on their strategy to victory at Previous Trafford, his first in over three years, and his latest performances have been credited with lastly ending the membership’s defensive points after years of doubt.
City – who’ve been severely affected by COVID-19 – had been off the tempo all through the first-half of the marketing campaign, with defeats towards Leicester and Tottenham which means they’ve been adrift of the remainder of the title contenders.
However a latest return to kind has seen Guardiola’s group rise steadily up the desk they usually now sit fifth with two video games in hand. In the event that they win each, it’ll see City leapfrog Liverpool to the Premier League summit as soon as once more.
And if that occurs, Cundy believes they’ll be no stopping them.
“Man City are a group now which can be beginning to undergo the gears properly and beginning to look very, very menacing,” stated the previous Chelsea defender on The Sports activities Bar (weeknights from 10pm).
“They appear like one of the best facet within the Premier League in the mean time. Be careful the remainder of the Premier League, that’s what I’ll say.
“Man City are within the prime place to go on and do very properly this season within the league. I believe they may win the treble, the home treble, that wouldn’t shock me.
“The accidents and gamers they’ve received lacking for varied causes, they haven’t suffered one little bit.
“We’ve at all times thought, and this goes again two or three seasons now, defending is the place Man City are weak. They by no means seemed as defensively stable as they may.
“However Ruben Dias has are available in, what a signing he’s been, John Stones is now trying just like the centre-half City thought they purchased.
“They defend like Spurs however assault like Man City – that’s a potent mixture if you will get it proper at each ends, and they’re.
