Manchester City are in hunt for a quadruple this season as they are still in four competitions and defender Pablo Zabaleta reckons that it is destined to be a smash hit with their ‘Fab Five’ fit .
Nigerian youngster Kelechi Iheanacho broke into the team this season and has scored some vital goals for the Citizens but the Argentine who once ordered Raheem Sterling to concede a penalty kick to him has revealed that the spine of the team revolves around Joe Hart, David Silva, Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero rather than the 19-year-old.
“Those players are like the spine of the team,” said Zabaleta. “Joe Hart, David Silva, Kompany, Yaya and Sergio. They are the main players of this team.
“Vinny has been out for long periods, Silva the same, we lost Aguero with a bad injury too. You need your best players in their best form if you are going to be a strong team.
“From now until the end is the time when we have to work hard, push together.
“We’ve got big games coming up and there is still a great chance for this football club to have success at the end of it.
“Now we must focus on the Capital One Cup final on Sunday.”
Manchester City gun for the first of four trophies this season on Sunday when they play Liverpool in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley.
