A few weeks ago Manchester City’s path to a treble still looked littered with obstacles but suddenly Pep Guardiola’s side have a clear run to sporting immortality.
They can tick off the first box this weekend by wrapping up the Premier League title for the fifth time in six seasons.
What had looked like being a two-horse race right to the wire now looks like being a procession after Arsenal buckled under the pressure exerted by a relentless City.
City might be crowned champions before they even kick a ball this weekend if Arsenal lose at relegation battlers Nottingham Forest on Saturday – a scenario that is more likely than seemed possible a few weeks ago when the Gunners were top of the table.
