A come-from-behind 3-1 victory over Sunderland at Wembley on Sunday sealed the first leg of what could be an historic trophy haul.

City were cut for the treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Capital One Cup, a feat never achieved since the League Cup was born back in the 1960/61 season, following their win.

Ladbrokes were left offering a standout 7/2 (in from 4/1). Several other firms go 3/1.

City are technically still in the hunt for an unprecedented Quadruple but they are out at 200/1 for that having fallen 2-0 down to Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie. They had gone as short as 20/1 in that market prior to last month's loss at the Etihad.

Manuel Pellegrini's men are currently odds-on across the board to win the FA Cup, something they last did in 2011. They play host to Wigan in a repeat of last season's final next Sunday in the quarter-finals.

However, City are only 13/8 second favourites for the league title after slipping six points behind leaders Chelsea, although they do have two games in hand.

Sky Bet's head of football trading Paul Wiggins, whose firm offer 100/30, said: "It's a feat no English club has managed before but they're looking good value to be the first, with Chelsea's league form seemingly the only thing standing in the way of domestic dominance."

City trailed to an early Fabio Borini goal at half time on Sunday but stunning strikes from Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri turned the game on its head early in the second half. A late Jesus Navas goal sealed the victory and Pellegrini's first trophy at the helm of the club.
