Over the next three weeks Manchester City face stiff competition from a whole host of clubs, but who are they and what are they up to?

Wednesday 1 March
FA Cup Fifth Round Replay
Etihad Stadium
City v Huddersfield Town
Kick off 19:45 GMT
Prediction: City win

After City’s match remained scoreless at the Johns Smith Stadium a couple of weeks ago manager David Wagner and The Terriers have continued to push for automatic promotion with a 1-0 home win over fellow Championship promotion hopefuls, Reading. Yesterday’s 1-1 Yorkshire derby draw, away at Barnsley leaves Town in third, five points behind Newcastle United and six behind league leaders Brighton.

Wednesday’s game at the Etihad is no pushover.

Sunday 5 March
Premier League
Stadium of Light
Sunderland v City
Kick off 16:00 GMT
Prediction: City win

Sunderland’s torrid time trying to avoid relegation continued yesterday afternoon when David Moyes witnessed his team lose at Everton 2-0. The Black Cats remain at the foot of the Premier League table after accumulating a mere 19 points. Championship football is just around the corner.

Wednesday 15 March
Champions League Last 16 Second Leg
Stade Louis II
Monaco v City
Kick off 19:45 GMT
Prediction: City will qualify

City beat Monaco 5-3 at the Etihad in a thoroughly entertaining game but will we see something similar in France?

AS Monaco continued their impressive Ligue 1 form yesterday with a 2-1 away win at Guingamp and remain three points ahead of Nice at the top of the table.

Saturday 1 April
Premier League
Emirates Stadium
Arsenal v City
Kick off 15:00 BST
Date and time subject to change
Prediction: Draw

Arsenal are still competing in the FA Cup but their Champions League dream was left in tatters following their thumping by Bayern Munich the other week. They will have to conjure up a minor miracle to continue in this year’s competition.

A regular top four Premier League finish could be in jeopardy this season especially with Liverpool, Manchester United and Everton breathing down their neck. I wonder?

Wednesday 5 April
Premier League
Stamford Bridge
Chelsea v City
Kick off 19:45 BST
Date and time subject to change
Prediction: Chelsea win

Still in the FA Cup and an easy Premier League 3-1 win over Swansea City yesterday means Antonio Conte and his side jump back to 11 points ahead of the chasing pack. Can they be caught? I doubt it.

City are still in the hunt for a treble winning season but I have to put on my realistic hat on now and say our biggest hope of collecting any silverware this season is the FA Cup.

Come on CITY!!

  • 8th March at 8pm we enetertain Stoke City and on the Saturday early doors around 12.15ish we travel to Boro for the 6th round FA Cup match and encounter the Beast again. Good to see that Alvaro is still in good form and he should have stayed at City where he and Sergio were good partners
