The English Premier League has a history of a few top tier teams being dominant each year. Typically these teams rotate in strength, and in the standings.
There is no doubt that Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool have been the consistent top tier teams that have dominated the Premier League during its existence. But the second-tier teams have been fighting quite a bit lately and teams like Everton and Tottenham, have given a concerted effort to reach top tier status.
Also a new team has emerged over the past fifteen years to become a dominant force in the Premier League. Manchester City had been the poor second cousin to the most popular and successful team in the Premier League, Manchester United. The club however saw its fortunes change when they were purchased fifteen years ago by Abu Dhabi billionaire Sheikh Mansour, who immediately set out on a mission to make the club a top tier team.
He not only injected lots of money into the team, but in addition to the more than $1 billion dollars he has spent on the club, since purchasing it, he also focused on quality hires for the club.
The efforts have paid off and Manchester City is currently the top Premier League club having won three of the last six Premier League Championships and the last two in a row.
Additionally, the club is both the top offensive and defensive team in the league. Finally, betting on Manchester City at top sports betting sites continues to be lively. You can bet on them here for any of their upcoming matches.
Here is how they are doing it and why their success will continue.
Manchester City has certainly gone into the market to purchase top players. This year they have brought in Rodri from Atletico Madrid and Joao Cancelo from Juventus for top dollar. But they have been very careful and strategic with their spending, usually looking for quality rather than flash. As a result they are a great club filled with players who want to win rather than show off.
A Smart and Dedicated Manager and Coaching Staff
Any time a club has this level of consistent success, you can attribute it mostly to their manager and coaching staff. Keeping players motivated and prepared for every game takes a level of coordination and dedication that is exemplary, and coach Pep Guardiola and his staff are excellent. Man City has a reputation for being the most prepared club that makes the fewest mistakes. They also know how to get the best out of their players. This reputation is a direct reflection on Pep and his team.
