Premier League plot special award for Manchester City – Unique prize last awarded in 2004



| Last Updated:


The Premier League are plotting a unique prize for Manchester City at the end of the season, should they go on to beat Liverpool and Arsenal to the top-flight crown.

Pep Guardiola and his squad currently find themselves in third position in the top-flight table following their most-recent outing in the division, having been held to a 0-0 draw at the Etihad Stadium by title rivals Arsenal.

Manchester City are currently three points off league leaders Liverpool at the summit of the division, while one point separates Pep Guardiola and Mikel Arteta at present with nine games left to play in the ongoing season.

Following on from their Treble success of the last campaign, yet more history awaits Manchester City and their all-conquering squad this time around, with a fourth successive Premier League crown on offer.

And should the Etihad club manage to achieve such a feat, then the Premier League themselves are lining up a unique prize for Pep Guardiola and his players, according to new revelations in the media this week.

That is as per the information of Manchester City insider ‘Tolmie’s Hairdoo’ on X, who reports that the Premier League are considering awarding Pep Guardiola and his players with a ‘replica golden Premier League trophy’ if they win a fourth successive top-flight title this season.

Manchester City would become the first side in the history of the competition to win the league four times in a row, while the last golden trophy tribute was to acknowledge Arsenal’s ‘Invincible’ campaign of 2003/04.

Pep Guardiola has won a total of 16 major honours since first arriving at Manchester City from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2016, winning the Premier League title on five separate occasions, including a number of hotly-contested battles with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

Guardiola has also gone on to claim the FA Cup twice, as well as the League Cup four times, while last season saw the Catalan coach deliver the UEFA Champions League honour to Manchester City for the first time in the club’s history.

Continental and global success was also claimed following the club’s Treble success at the end of the 2022/23 season, with Manchester City going on to achieve the UEFA Super Cup over Sevilla in Athens, and the FIFA Club World Cup in Saudi Arabia.
