Stones urges Man City to ‘make some more history’ as they chase the Treble

John Stones strongly wants Manchester City to maintain their intensity in their pursuit of the treble, following their EPL title win.

Having secured the Premier League title, the first of the potential three trophies, over the weekend, City is now focused on the upcoming FA Cup final against Manchester United on June 3 and the subsequent Champions League final against Inter Milan in Istanbul the following week.

Defender Stones, now a five-time Premier League winner, said: “We’re back in training on Monday and we’ll go from there. We’ve got to keep the rhythm.

“The hunger is there and we know what’s ahead of us now, that we can try and make some more history.”

City celebrated their Premier League triumph by receiving the trophy after securing a comfortable 1-0 victory over Chelsea, with Julian Alvarez scoring the decisive goal at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Their fifth title in six seasons, and a third consecutive one, was officially confirmed the previous evening when second-placed Arsenal suffered a defeat against Nottingham Forest.

City, who were eight points behind Arsenal just last month, have surpassed their closest rivals with an impressive streak of 12 consecutive wins.

Stones loves the challenge of playing in the midfield

Stones said: “I don’t think I had time to doubt what we can do. I think it was just focusing on what was ahead of us, focusing on winning.

“We’ve done it so many times now. We just came on this run, and it’s just incredible what kind of team we’ve got.

“I’ve been here nearly seven years now and we just keep going from strength to strength with the players that we’ve got, the team that we’ve got and the improvement.

“The titles that we’ve won – I think it speaks for itself.”

Stones has been one of City’s key players during their strong run throughout the spring, playing in a hybrid defence-midfield role.

Consequently, he has made a big impression at both ends of the field.

“I absolutely love it,” he said. “It’s something new for me that I’m learning, giving my everything, every game.

“I don’t know if it’s my best football but I’m absolutely loving playing.

“It’s always easy when you’re winning and playing the football that we are, but it’s another string to my bow and I am absolutely enjoying it.”
