Manchester City completed an unprecedented English domestic treble on Saturday with a 6-0 rout of Watford in the FA Cup final at Wembley in front of 85,854 spectators.

The win meant that Manchester City won all of England’s domestic competitions this season. No team had ever won the Premier League, the FA Cup, and the Carabao Cup in the same season until Man City did so this year.

In addition, they also won the FA Community Shield last summer, a matchup pitting the winner of the previous season’s EPL and the FA Cup.

While Watford went into Saturday’s final with hopes of upsetting the English powerhouse, it was not to be. Man City, the vastly superior side, dominated the entire game and put the cherry on top on the best season in the club’s history.

Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling both scored braces for Manchester City. David Silva, who scored the opener in the 26th minute, and Kevin de Bruyne, also chipped in a goal.

While he didn’t find the net, Portuguese midfielder Bernardo Silva was also key in the victory, providing two assists to his teammates.

The match, Manchester City’s final game of the season, was representative of the domestic dominance that they displayed throughout the 2018-19 season.

The team will now rest until late July, when their preseason campaign will begin in Japan.
