As Saturday approaches and the chance to win a domestic treble nears, Pep speaks about the game. In what will be CIty’s final game this season it has the possibility to be a really special day.

Pep said:

“It is what it is after what happened last season,” he added.

“We won the most incredible Premier League ever, in terms of results and competitors. We are incredibly satisfied.

“We celebrated for a short time and were back to business in the last few days to focus on Watford because I know how difficult it was in the home game, with the the quality up front with [Roberto] Peyreyra, [Troy] Deeney and [Gerard] Deulofeu.

“The long balls to Deeney are always unstoppable, even with our tough central defenders. Maybe he is the best striker for setting the ball to his mates.

“We handled the defensive side really well, with set pieces they have Holebas who is an incredible taker.

“We spoke about the players and hopefully we can be focused for one more day, to compete again to be champions.”

“We could not win, but the effort would have been the same,” he explained.

“For one line you can win the league or not win the league, or you can win the FA Cup or not win.

“The important thing is to judge what we have done that season. To take back to back Premier Leagues, to be in the FA Cup final and to win four titles in one season would be incredible.

“But honestly, it won’t change my judgement of the team if tomorrow we don’t win.”

Pep and his mighty City squad could be the first squad ever to win the four available domestic trophies. Having already won the Community Shield, EFL Cup and Premier League only a game Watford stands in there way. We’ll find out soon enough.
