Man City's Fixture Pile Up - How the Citizens Calendar Looks for the Rest of the Season

Right, so, Manchester City had a game against West Ham called off on Sunday.

It was great news for West Ham fans, who managed to have a windy but pleasant Sunday not watching their team get played off the park.

The bad news for both sides is that it's another fixture that needs to be rearranged after the winter break. Hardly ideal for Pep Guardiola or David Moyes.

City still have fixtures in four separate competitions and have chances of winning three of those, though it'll take every member of their squad to accomplish an unlikely treble.

Let's have a look at their upcoming fixtures for the rest of the season, shall we?

​Premier League

City's Premier League title defence has been dead for a couple of months now but second place is still very much up for grabs, with Guardiola's side holding a two-point advantage over third-placed Leicester.

The Foxes are up after the rearranged clash with West Ham, while the Citizens still have games against Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool to get through.

Champions League

Dinamo Zagreb v Manchester City: Group C - UEFA Champions League

​City were probably favourites for their last 16 clash against ​Real Madrid when the draw was made back in December, but how things have changed since then.

Los Blancos are now three points clear at the top of La Liga and look back to their best under Zinedine Zidane, with Karim Benzema in decent touch and their midfield trio of Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos still going strong.

Even Isco is back among the goals, while Eden Hazard could be fit to face his former Premier League title rivals. 

Game? Date? Time? (GMT)* Venue?
Real Madrid vs Manchester City 26/2/20 20:00 Santiago Bernabeu
Manchester City vs Real Madrid 17/3/20 20:00 Etihad

FA Cup

Finally, a trophy City are probably favourites for! What with Jurgen Klopp insistent on playing Liverpool's kids in domestic competitions and City enjoying favourable draw after favourable draw, the reigning champions can feel confident of retaining the trophy they won last season.

They're up against Championship side ​Sheffield Wednesday next, and the trip to Hillsborough could prove to be tricky.

However, Wednesday's form has fallen away in recent weeks, with the Owls without a victory in four league games and six points off the playoff spots.

Game? Date? Time? (GMT)* Venue?
Sheffield Wednesday vs Manchester City 4/3/20 19:45 Hillsborough Stadium

Carabao Cup

Manchester City v Manchester United - Carabao Cup: Semi Final

If City don't win the Carabao Cup, something will have gone seriously wrong.

They're up against ​Aston Villa, a struggling side they recently smashed 6-1 at Villa Park.

Seriously, if the Villans end up lifting that trophy at the start of March, ​it might be time for Pep to go. I mean obviously not that, but it'll be that.

Game? Date? Time? (GMT)* Venue?
Aston Villa vs Manchester City 1/3/20 16:30 Wembley
