Gary Neville fears Man City will match Man Utd's historic treble as Arsenal's title race hits the rocks | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED legend Gary Neville has revealed his fears that neighbours Man City could pull-off the Treble.

The former England defender was part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s legendary side that lifted the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in 1999.

No English club has been able to repeat that feat since, but the now Sky Sports pundit believes Pep Guardiola’s team are “far too close for comfort” to pulling off the same this term.

And Neville also insisted that it “is definitely on” as the Cityzens head to Bayern Munich with a 3-0 lead for the Champions League quarter final second-leg on Wednesday.

Speaking on the Gary Neville Podcast on Sky Sports, he said: “They're purring, they're playing well, they're in great form, they're serious now about it.”

City beat Leicester 3-1 on Saturday and have closed the gap to just four points on top-flight leaders Arsenal, who they still have to play at home, to four points and have a game in hand.

Neville hailed the recent displays of trio of Rodri, Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne and called them the “best midfield in the league” as well as praising the performances of attackers Erling Haaland, Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez.  

He added: “They're settled now – they're hitting the home straight.

“The treble was mentioned in the studio […] it's definitely on. They can do the treble.

“They can win the European Cup, they can win the FA Cup, they can win the Premier League.

“There's a long way to go [and] they could come up against a team that does them on the way. But they're very, very close to it. Far too close for comfort!”

Should City see off Bayern then they will face the winners of Chelsea and Real Madrid, who hold a 2-0 first-leg lead over the Blues, in the Champions League semi-finals.

And they will be at Wembley this Saturday to face Championship promotion contenders Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-final, with United and BRighton contesting the other one the following day.
