Pep Guardiola confirms next target if Man City win treble… and it involves Tottenham
Manchester City are on course to win what would be a memorable treble under Pep Guardiola this season.
It would be a huge achievement and the Spaniard is already eyeing his next task, scoring away at Tottenham.
Having recently won their fifth Premier League title in six seasons, City have been the most dominant team in English football of late.
However, facing Spurs away from home has proven to be a tough task for them in recent seasons.
City have not won at the north London side in their previous five attempts and failed to score in all of them, something that Guardiola is hoping to change.
When asked by Sky Sports what the next challenge would be after the treble, he said: “To score a goal against Spurs away.”
He was then asked if it would be possible to do so and he pretended the pray whilst looking towards the heavens, adding: “I want to beat the Spurs away!”
Spurs beat City 1-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium earlier in the campaign, a repeat score line of the same fixture last season.
Guardiola and co. also fell to defeat at the stadium in their classic Champions League quarter-final clash in 2019.
Results at home against the north London outfit have been better but for some reason, their away success has been rare.
Despite the defeat, City went on to win the Premier League title for the third consecutive season on Saturday.
Arsenal’s 1-0 loss against Nottingham Forest meant the Citizens have secured the crown with just one week remaining.
A clash at Brighton, which is live on talkSPORT, and a trip to Brentford are their final two games of the Premier League season.
City will then prepare for their FA Cup final against rivals Manchester United at the beginning of June.
Should they win at Wembley, the treble will be secured if they claim victory over Inter Milan in the Champions League final.
City have proven that they can beat almost any team in world football, but sometimes a trip to Spurs can be a step too far.
Next season could see their fortunes change though as the Manchester giants look set to continue their dominance in English football.
