– Mission Impossible for The Underdogs
Manchester City sealed their place in English football history at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening by completing the first ever domestic treble in a season, adding the FA Cup to last week’s Premier League trophy and the League Cup -Cabarao Cup- earlier won in the season .
The English Premier League , EPL kings were at their ruthless best with an emphatic 6-0 demolition of fellow premier league opponents, Watford . Although , realistically an upset was not on the cards , considering that the Hornets finished ten places against Pep Guardiola’s side in the League last season, Javi Gracia’s gave it their best shot , but as in every area of life , class matters, and City were simply unstoppable and too good for the opposition .
In fact , had the FA Cup final been a boxing match , the Watford corner would have thrown in the towel and perhaps repeated the immortal words “no more,” – that boxing hall of famer, Roberto Duran once uttered when throwing in the towel in a fight – just before the seventieth minute when Gabriel Jesus made the history believable in making it goal number four for the EPL kings .
Speaking after the loss, Gracia, offered his congratulations to the champions and admitted that City :”are really good. “
