Pep Guardiola Manchester City

City (5/2 Champions League outright) remain active in three competitions this term as they look to land silverware in the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

They are well on track to successfully defend their Premier League crown, sitting nine points clear at the top of the standings, while they are set to face Peterborough in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The focus turns to European glory on Tuesday, having lost in the Champions League final last season, as they gear up to take on Sporting Lisbon in the first-leg of their last-16 tie.

Jack Grealish and Gabriel Jesus are set to miss out on the trip to Portugal due to injury but Pep Guardiola has plenty of depth to cope in their absence.

After stringing together a 12-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, including 11 wins, City have momentum firmly on their side.

Rodri has hailed City’s recent run of form but admits it’s crucial to remain focused on each game to ensure they can achieve all of their goals.

“We know that winning all the time is difficult, but we show our hunger every year and every year and every year – this is the character that is built in Man City,” Rodri said.

“I think this team we have to demand everything as we have the quality, the ambition and we have the structure to do it and we are going to demand to do it.”
