Manchester City’s hopes of winning an unprecedented quadruple may be scuttled by Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to Matt Doherty who believes they can win the FA Cup.
The FA Cup title is the only domestic trophy eluding Pep Guardiola in England and the Spanish manager has set his sights on winning all the competitions.
However, there is a well-tutored Nuno Espirito side who are punching well above their level this season.
Nuno Espirito is a well known professed and renowned student of Jose Mourinho and has somewhat masterminded the downfall of the big teams this campaign with a brand of football that is reminiscent of Mourinho in his Porto days.
Wolves went on to make a huge statement of intent in the Cup by dumping favourites Manchester United.
And Doherty sees no reason why they should not lift the trophy to cap a remarkable campaign.
Asked if Wolves can win the cup, Doherty replied via FourFourTwo: “Yes, of course. I know Manchester City are still in there, but we have managed to avoid them. I know they’ll be favourites, but we have drawn with them this season.
“I know they beat us at the Etihad, but in the semi-final, it’s a 50-50, one-off, anything is possible and we have got a good team, so yes, we’re capable of doing it.”
And as he prepares for Saturday’s opening Euro 2020 qualifier in Gibraltar, he has already set his sights on a big day at Wembley.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men face Watford in the semi-finals with either Manchester City or Ireland team-mate Shane Duffy’s Brighton awaiting the winners.
If Man City ends up meeting Wolves in the final of the FA Cup, Pep would be wary of their threat because they’d be keen on snapping his chain.
