FA Cup success on Saturday would make it five domestic trophies out of the last six for Manchester City under a manager who has made domestic dominance a habit eni, Vidi, City.

With the Premier League title retained and an FA Cup final to follow there already something imperial about the climax to Pep Guardiola’s first three seasons in English football, a sense of nation-building zeal.

Victory in Saturday’s FA Cup final against Watford would make Guardiola’s City the first English men’s team to complete a domestic league and cup treble in 58 years since the League Cup was first called into being.

This has always been a part of the grander plan, the intention not just to win, but to win right, to embody a vision, a way of winning.

Winning the FA Cup would make it five domestic trophies out of six for City over two seasons, a spell of dominance that is alsounmatched in the Premier League era.

Not that you’d know it looking at Watford’s record against Guardiola’s City in the Premier League, which reads, played six, lost six, aggregate score 21-3 to City.

But Guardiola has refused to bend, and two years later English football has in effect been brought to heel, a stage for that relentless will-to-power.
