Ahead of Tuesday night's Capital One Cup semi-final second leg which should see City book their place in their first final of the season, Manuel Pellegrini's men are priced up at an industry-best price to win all four competitions they are in.

City, who currently sit second in the Premier League a point behind leaders Arsenal, are also through to the last 16 of the Champions League where they will meet Barcelona, the fourth round of the FA Cup where they will host Watford. They are 6-0 up on West Ham heading into Tuesday's second leg of the League Cup with Manchester United or Sunderland lying in wait at Wembley.

To win the Quadruple, which Pellegrini was eyeing last week, City would need to play at least 30 more games this season.

Speaking about winning all four competitions prior to City's 5-0 win over Blackburn last Wednesday, Pellegrini said: "We know that during the season, with injuries and the amount of games you have to play, it is very difficult.

"That's why nobody has done it before. But I think we must have the mentality to try to do it."


Back Manchester City to win the Quadruple at 80/1 with Sky Bet!


Pellegrini's men were as big as 1000/1 for the Quadruple as recently as October but having sorted out their away form in recent times without giving up their goalscoring prowess, their odds have steadily shortened.

The 'traditional' Treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League - a feat achieved by local rivals United back in 1998/99 season - can be backed at 66/1 with Sky Bet, while the domestic Treble is priced up at 13/2 by the Leeds-based firm.

City scored their 100th goal (in all competitions) of the season during Saturday's 4-2 win over Cardiff and Sky Bet are already betting on whether they can score 100 in the league alone. They currently have 63 from 22 games so would need to add 37 in their remaining 16 matches to reach three figures.

Sky Bet make it more likely than not to happen, offering 4/6. They will also give you 2/1 that City break the record for goals in a Premier League season. Chelsea's mark of 103, a tally they racked up in 2009/10, is the one they have to beat.

City have won all 11 of their home league games so far and it's just 2/5 they go through the campaign unbeaten on home turf.

Title rivals Chelsea are next to visit the Etihad Stadium on February 3. After that City will have to host Sunderland, Stoke, Aston Villa, Fulham, Southampton, West Brom and West Ham.
