Plenty of Manchester City fans have been reacting to the club’s April fixture list, which could decide the destiny of multiple trophies.
Pep Guardiola’s side have got a crucial run of fixtures coming up in April, the eight games currently scheduled for next month will be season-defining.
The Premier League leaders have four tough games against two top teams in 11-day stretch, which will either see them inconceivably end the season trophy-less, or keep alive the hunt for an historic treble.
But if they do get the two-legged tie off to the perfect start at the Etihad there will be no time for celebrations.
That’s because title rivals Liverpool come to town just five days later – in a game which could decide whether the Premier League trophy has sky blue or red ribbons on it this year.
Liverpool are just a point behind City in the table, and would leapfrog the current leaders with a win in Manchester on April 10.
If City win that game, at home, and the title is likely to be heading to Manchester for a second consecutive year.

Many Man City fans took to social media to make their feelings known, here’s a selection:
“A WIN IT OR LOSE IT MONTH.
Can’t wait for all the excitement.”
“Toughest month ever.”
“No way i come out of april with a beating heart.”
“In simple words: I’m nervous.”
“We could do extremely well and be looking at a potential Treble… or do terribly and the season could be as good as over 😠 Most important month so far for us.”
“Would’ve been a lot more comfortable if we won that game against Palace… Now EVERY game is a must win game.”
“I love the gap between the first game against Atletico and the Liverpool game, we can get to field our best 11 in both matches. But we must make sure the CL first leg is won in the 1st Leg.”
“I hate to say it but there is just no way City wins all 4 games against Liverpool and Atletico Madrid. Hoping for winning the UCL tie and the matchup in the league but I will just be happy with progressing in UCL if it means we win it all.”
“Pep better learn how to break down low blocks. It’s gonna be a long month.”
“Pep’s legacy month.”
How do you think Man City would fare against both our Liverpool matches as well as the Champions League against Atletico?
