Poll Reaction: Man City to be English UCL success story this season

| 29.09.2016

Manchester City are about to leave their compatriots in the dust with a stellar Champions League campaign.

That’s what the good people of Twitter had to say, in today’s @Ladbrokes poll, when we asked which Premier League side would have the most success in this season’s UCL.

Pep Guardiola’s men bagged 45 per cent of the vote, following a thrilling 3-3 draw at Celtic last night, and a 4-0 demolition of Borussia Monchengladbach on matchday one.

The most successful English side when they reached the semi-finals last season, knocking PSG out along the way, there’s plenty of reason to believe the Blues can have another real crack at lifting this trophy.

Leicester are next up on 26 per cent, with the fantastic Foxes sitting top of Group G after wins over Club Brugge and Porto.

They’ve pipped Arsenal to second spot, with Arsene Wenger’s men on 21 per cent of the vote, and the Gunners certainly have plenty of European pedigree, having reached the last 16 of the Champions League for 15 consecutive seasons.

In last place and in single digits are Tottenham, with few expecting much of Mauricio Pochettino’s men during their first UCL campaign in six years.

Following last night’s hard-fought draw at Celtic Park, Man City are 9/1 to lift the Champions League for the first time this season, while 4/1 says they finish top of Group C.

But for now, Guardiola and co. turn their focus to domestic duties, with 7/5 for the Etihad outfit to continue their perfect Premier League start with victory at Tottenham.
