|Manchester City to Win Trophy
However, Pep Guardiola’s side have continually fallen short in the Champions League during the Catalan’s time at the Etihad Stadium. City reached the final in 2021 but were defeated by Chelsea. In 2022, they suffered a dramatic defeat at the hands of Real Madrid in the semi-finals. They are priced at +275 to get their hands on the biggest prize in European soccer this time around, but they will face stiff competition from the rest of the competition.
Liverpool knocked City out of the FA Cup last season, before going on to beat Chelsea in the final. Guardiola’s men are available at +300 to win that tournament – the longest odds of all four trophies. City won four EFL Cups in a row between 2018 and 2021, and are listed at +275 to add another of those trophies to their cabinet.
Overall, Man City are given a +850 shot of winning the quadruple this season.

Manchester City got their Premier League title defense off to the perfect start with a 2-0 victory over West Ham United on matchday one. City have finished on top of the pile in England in four of the last five seasons, and they are the -190 favorites to do so once again in 2022/23.

The EFL Cup is widely regarded as the least important trophy in English soccer. The ‘treble’ therefore refers to the Premier League, the Champions League, and the FA Cup. City supporters would undoubtedly sacrifice the EFL Cup if it guaranteed them to glory in the three other competitions.
Guardiola’s men are available at just +230 to win the treble – a significant drop from the odds of a quadruple.
No team in the history of English soccer has ever won the quadruple. That is because it is extremely difficult to emerge victorious on four different fronts. The EFL Cup is usually finished by February or March, but the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League all tend to conclude within days of each other in May or June.
In the 2021/22 season, Liverpool were bidding to win the quadruple after wrapping up the EFL Cup early. However, their opponents in the FA Cup final (Chelsea) and Champions League final (Real Madrid) were focusing solely on that tournament. Even with a big squad, it is hard to maintain the same level across four different events, especially in knockout competitions where one off-day can lead to elimination.
Most leagues around Europe only have one cup competition, so there is no such thing as a quadruple. Jock Stein’s Celtic are the only team to have won four major trophies in the same season: the Bhoys were victorious in the European Cup, the Scottish Division One, the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup in 1966/67.
Only one English side has ever won the treble of Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup: Manchester United in 1998/99. The Red Devils beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League final, finished one point clear of Arsenal in the Premier League, and overcame Newcastle United in the FA Cup final. In hindsight, United must regret their defeat by Tottenham Hotspur in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup.
Other major clubs that have won the treble include Inter in 2009/10 (Serie A, Champions League, Coppa Italia), Bayern Munich in 2012/13 (Bundesliga, Champions League, DFB-Pokal) and Barcelona in 2008/09 and 2014/15 (La Liga, Champions League, Copa del Rey).
Despite being among the favorites throughout Guardiola’s tenure, Manchester City have never won the Champions League. The closest they got was in 2020/21, when they suffered a 1-0 loss to Chelsea in the final.
City have competed in the Champions League in 13 different seasons (including the 2022/23 campaign). Their first taste of continental action was way back in 1968/69, when they lost to Fenerbahce in the first round of the European Cup.
Manchester City won all three major domestic trophies in 2018/19: the Premier League title, the FA Cup and the EFL Cup. Their failure to triumph in Europe means it does not go down as a true treble, however. City were eliminated from the Champions League by Tottenham that season.
Liverpool won an unusual treble of UEFA Cup, FA Cup and EFL Cup under the management of Gerard Houllier in 2000/01.
