City are challenging for honours on all four fronts and Chelsea – if they’re not licking wounds after the hiding at the Etihad Stadium – will get one chance to upset Pep Guardiola’s bid for a clean sweep when they meet in the Carabao Cup final.
On that same day, the biggest game on the calendar takes place with United meeting Liverpool.
It’s not being disrespectful to say this is the match that will attract the biggest attention, despite the final at Wembley.
No United fan needs reminding of the importance of this fixture in any campaign but, with the Merseysiders pushing for the title, it is imperative Ole’s men throw a spanner into the works.
The last time Liverpool had a challenge for the Premier League trophy, we lost 3-0 in March 2014. And Steven Gerrard missed one of his three penalties on a difficult afternoon for David Moyes’s side.
