We have seen Manchester City consistently able to achieve cup wins (in recent years), whilst maintaining both strong League and European campaigns.

Manchester United 3-2 Liverpool: Observations as Fernandes downs improved Reds

Defeat at Old Trafford, but at last reason to be optimistic. Going forward, Liverpool started to tick again. Having been benched in midweek, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino responded commendably.
