We should avoid mincing words about it: On the substance of how the Premier League season has gone for Manchester City this year, it wouldn’t be horrendous on the off chance that it was. Premier League fans can book Manchester City vs Liverpool Tickets on our website on discounted prices.
They would stay ruling bosses, from the 2018/19 season, and they would have another opportunity at safeguarding that title in 2020/21 – accepting that football would be capable.
It also opens up the huge opportunities for stoking that rivalry that’s developed with Liverpool… you can already see how it would go: “We would have won the league.”/”But you didn’t win the league.”
But, digging a little deeper, it’s worth more to City to finish this current season – again, whenever possible – than to abandon it entirely. Remember: An abandoned season means the last seven (ish) months, as far as the sport and the record books are concerned, just didn’t happen. Data would run from 2018/19 straight into 2020/21, with nothing in between. A void. A nothing.
And, as underwhelming as this season has been at times, City have a lot to lose.The most obvious, initially, is that they would go back to only being two-time defending League Cup winners. And this is a funny one because recently City fans have taken to the League Cup more than any other club (possibly because the team keeps winning it).
With solid groups from Pep Guardiola all through all rounds of the opposition, he’s given himself the most obvious opportunity with regards to winning the trophy each spring – and the fans, while now and again disillusioned not to see more youth players highlight, have all things considered bolstered the transition to find a good pace February.
Other clubs don’t get that. It’s at these points Manchester City can’t win, if they put out a debilitating side and they’re not taking it seriously, if they put out a strong team then they’re disrespecting lower-league opposition by winning big.

Yet the anger is always forgotten and City lifts the trophy again the following spring. Having won five of the last seven, City has made the competition their own over the last few years – and to lose it would be like the fans losing a little bit of themselves. Forget the Champions League, the League Cup is where it’s at.
Equally, all of the goals that City scored this season would no longer exist. While the 68 strikes the club has made in the Premier League this season might not immediately stand out as a reason to keep the campaign alive, the 16 netted in the competition by Sergio Aguero are.
Without those, which incorporated a capping stunt at Aston Villa, the striker would dive over into the second spot in the rundown of outside goalscorers in the Premier League. Champions League fans can book Liverpool Tickets on our website on discounted prices.
Worse as yet, erasing that cap stunt would likewise grant the record for the most cap deceives in the Premier League back to Alan Shearer – who Aguero was sharing the crown with. He’d be back on 11, equivalent to the previous England striker oversaw in the opposition.
Even worse, for fans of the more macabre records at the club, it would take away City’s claim at being the only team in Premier League history to have scored eight times in a game and also conceded eight times in a game. You probably never thought that would happen when Jeremie Aliadiere slotted Middlesbrough’s eighth past Andreas Isaksson in Sven Goran Eriksson’s final match in charge, but here we are.
And it gets worse, too. As it stands, City is one Premier League missed penalty away from the record for consecutive failures from the spot. Their last miss was their fourth in succession – as Aguero lightened his lines when confronting Leicester’s Kasper Schmeichel – following on from Ilkay Gundogan discovering Hugo Lloris’ gloves at Tottenham, Gabriel Jesus being denied by Dean Henderson at Sheffield United, and Raheem Sterling not ready to change over against Rui Patricio at Wolves.
As it stands, if City misses their next spot-kick, then they draw level with Arsenal’s record of five-in-a-row (Lee Dixon, Paul Merson and Ian Wright (x3) are all now looking over their shoulders).
There are more losers, too: Kyle Walker’s cameo in goal at Atalanta would be consigned to folklore rather than record, while Tommy Doyle and Taylor Harwood-Bellis would still be waiting for the first appearances for the senior team. That latter would also no longer have scored in the FA Cup, either.
It might be the case that City haven’t been top of the Premier League table since about 6.30 pm on Saturday 17 August 2019, but City fans have spent years trying to explain the difference between history and success – in the face of criticism from clubs that won trophies in the 1980s and 1990s. Success, while fun at the time, is just data and a list of trophies.
History, while it might be a living nightmare sometimes, is very interesting. History is holding the ball by the corner flag to get relegated. History is being the only reigning champions to go down the following season. And history is being the only team to score and concede eight in a game in the Premier League and to have the most consecutive missed penalties.
