The Premier League reigning champions want to claim glory again this season. Manchester City, who came up short in their quest for a highly desired UEFA Champions League title a few months ago, will try to conquer the world in 2021-2022 with one of the most powerful rosters in the world.
Pep Guardiola's men have comfortably won the English top-flight in 2020/21 without facing fierce competition on their way to the championship. This time, however, things might be different. Chelsea, who beat them in the UCL final last season, are reloaded to go after every prize at stake, while Manchester United, Liverpool, and Tottenham could also get involved in the title race.
On the continental level, the outlook could be even more complicated, as they were grouped alongside the mighty PSG of Lionel Messi and Neymar, while other European heavyweights such as Real Madrid and Bayern will be also in contention for the trophy. However, City have plenty of reasons for optimism due to their world-class roster.
