Manchester City add yet another amazing feat to their memorable 2023

Manchester City have added yet another amazing feat to their incredible 2023. In a year where they won 5 trophies and conquered the world they also finished the calendar year unbeaten at the Etihad Stadium. Given the amount of football that Pep Guardiola’s side plays each year, it is a remarkable achievement.

Over the year Pep Guardiola’s side won 25 games and drew 3 in 28 games at the Etihad. Some of the football played at home was the world champions at their scintillating best. A host of the biggest clubs in Europe all fell victim to the world champions in front of the City faithful.

RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Arsenal and others were all soundly beaten at the Etihad. City’s home form formed the foundation as they stormed their way to the treble earlier this year. The performances against Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in last season’s UEFA Champions League were the standouts of a run by Pep Guardiola’s side that ultimately saw them win the competition.

To go through an entire calendar year unbeaten at home is yet another remarkable achievement. It represents the consistency, hunger, determination and ruthlessness of Pep Guardiola’s side. On top of the quality of football played at the Etihad, it forms a lethal combination.

The Manchester City fans have played their part in their side’s home dominance. City fans have made the Etihad a feared venue. It was something the Spanish media mentioned after the treble winners dispatched Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final second leg.

Remaining undefeated at the Etihad is yet another accolade for this all-conquering Manchester City side. It may be some time before that scale of dominance is seen again.
