Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has dismissed talks about his team winning a quadruple of title after they reached the semi-finals of the EFL Cup on Tuesday.

Although City beat Leicester 4-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw to secure a spot in the EFL Cup semi-final, Guardiola hold a different opinion.

The City manager does not think City will be celebrating an unprecedented quadruple at the end of the season.

This is despite the fact that  the club is still in the FA Cup and Champions League, in addition to their untainted record of winning successive matches at the undefeated leaders in the Premier League.

“Forget about it,” Guardiola said to Sky Sports. “That’s not real. That’s not going to happen, no.”

The Catalan coach also suggested Leicester were lucky to have made it to a shoot-out in the first place, with Gray in his opinion fortunate to win the penalty that Vardy converted.

He added: “The TV doesn’t lie. We can see if it’s a penalty or not, but we overcame the situation. In football, sometimes these kind of things happen.”
