Man City fans have clear priority on which trophy they want most this season
Manchester City supporters who voted in a Manchester Evening News poll have had their say on which trophy they want to see their team lift most this year.
The club are leading the race for the Premier League and are in the semi-finals of the Champions League again this term. City are going for their fourth title in five seasons and also wish to make amends for their Champions League final loss last May.
These are now the only two pieces of silverware they can pick up this season. They were knocked out of the FA Cup by Liverpool — this season’s League Cup winners — and lost out to Leicester in August’s Community Shield.

When asked which trophy they would prefer to see their team lift this campaign, the majority of supporters opted for the Champions League. It is the only trophy to elude Pep Guardiola during his tenure so far at the Etihad.
Overall, 63.1 per cent of voters said they mostly want to see him win Europe’s elite competition this time around. Meanwhile, 54.9 per cent of voters admitted they would allow Liverpool to win the league if it meant City beating the Reds in the final to see them lift the Champions League.
Just 34.2 per cent of supporters said they’d prefer to see the reverse. Of course, City may well accomplish the double this season and if successful would be the first team to do the Premier League-Champions League swoop since Manchester United in the 2007/08 season.
They must first get past Real Madrid with the first leg at the Etihad on Tuesday evening. Liverpool must overcome Villarreal to set-up an all-English final for the second year running.
