Who are Manchester City?

Manchester City is an English football team based in Manchester founded in 1880.

The Citizens today is considered one of the greats in the country and Europe. but, this is something fresh since, in the past, the “citizen” team wasn’t one of the leading club in English football.

Before being known as Manchester City, the “citizen” club had two names. The first of those two was the St Marks ‘, the name with which the history of the whole of the city began. Under that name, they’d play for seven years and were renamed Ardwick Association Football Club in 1887.

Another seven years, they’d play under that title, finally becoming as it is today on April 16, 1894. The first stadium in their history was Hyde Road, followed by Main Road and the Etihad Stadium.

His first season in the top-tier of English football would occur in the 1898/1899 season. The Citizens would be for four years in the First Division English, proceeding in the first decline in its club history in the 1901/1902 season.

The side’s passage through the Second Division would be brief since in the first season in the second category of English football, they’d be promoted to First again.

What are the predictions for next season?

Premier League holders Manchester City get their 2021/22 title defence against soon-to-be Paulo Fonseca’s Tottenham Hotspur when the new season kicks off on the weekend of August 14.

It’s an interesting opener to Pep Guardiola’s quest for a fourth PL title in five years, with the London-based club looking to bounce back from an underwhelming 2020/21 term.

However, the biggest threat to the Citizens could be coming from Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea.

The West London club’ have done a great job this summer and expected to make additions.

Man City have been meanwhile linked with a move to Lionel Messi who has officially departed from Barcelona and the reunion of Pep Guardiola and the Argentine magician is possible for the upcoming seaosn

Manchester City – 2021/22 season (odds)

Manchester City are 8/13 favourites to defend the title for the next season after stealing the trophy back off  Liverpool this term. but, it is fear to repeat that the Blues are seen as their greatest threat, followed by the Anfield side and city rivals Manchester United that have added Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane to their ranks.
