The Man City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern had high hopes for this season…
During the opening few weeks of the 2016/17 Premier League season, the punters in the Football Transfer Tavern thought that only 1 side would be competing for the title, after an electric start to life in the Premier League.
Man City started the season on fire, and had a 100% record for several weeks – but since then, it has all come crushing down for Pep Guardiola’s men.
Defeat to Man Utd in the EFL Cup this week has made things even worse for the Sky Blues – and the defeat means something particularly significant for Pep Guardiola.
According to OptaJoe on Twitter, the 6 games that the Spanish boss has now gone without a win is the worst run that he has ever had, beating out the 5 game win-less streak he had whilst with Barcelona.
See that Tweet below…
6 – Pep Guardiola has gone six games without a win for the first time in his managerial career. Slump.

The punters in the Tavern thought that he might struggle at the start of the season, with most managers needing a transitional period – but Man City’s electric start appeared to put those fears to bed.
This recent form, however, has worried the Man City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern; and many of them are now fearing the worst.
Our landlord thinks that Pep must pick up a win this weekend…
