Last season's performance

Manchester City’s domestic dominance continued in 2022/23 as they lifted the Premier League title once again, along with the FA Cup.

By defeating Inter Milan to win the Champions League, Pep Guardiola also finally lifted the trophy that had eluded him in Manchester until that point.

Last season showed that Guardiola is always looking to evolve tactically to improve his teams, and changes were made that probably weren’t deemed necessary at the time from the outside.

But all of his decisions paid dividends. John Stones was converted into a midfielder for the second half of the season, inverted full backs were used to conjure up an extra man in midfield and centre-half Manuel Akanji thrived at left-back after the surprise decision to send Joao Cancelo on loan to Bayern Munich.

The main difference last year, however, was the signing of Erling Haaland. The Norwegian superstar arrived as City’s solution to their number nine problem and his first season was an extraordinary one, as he netted 52 times in all competitions.
 

This season's prospects

Though not uncommon these days, Manchester City didn't get off to the best start. The wins seemed more workmanlike than in previous campaigns with points being dropped several times before Christmas.

But as they always do, City will look to come good in the second half of the season. They're within touching distance of the leaders, and it's been easy to forget the absence of Kevin De Bruyne. The brilliant Belgian missed five months of the season but was back with a bang against Newcastle, coming off the bench to score and assist as City came from 2-1 down to win 3-2.

City will almost certainly add to their trophy haul this season - the only question seems to be how many they will add?
