English Football Treble Winners


Manchester City are eyeing a historic treble this season, with the possibility of winning the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in the same season. If successful, it would be the crowing glory of their trophy-laden chapter since Sheikh Mansour bought the club back in 2008. But exactly how many clubs have won the treble in English football history?

Manchester United became the first, and only team, to win a treble in English football back in 1998/99 under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson. United pipped Arsenal to the Premier League title by a sole point to lift their first trophy that year on May 16. The Red Devils then beat Newcastle United 2-0 in the FA Cup final on May 22 with goals from Teddy Sheringham and Paul Scholes. And then just four days later, United sealed the treble with victory in one of the most iconic Champions League finals in history. Their showdown against Bayern Munich in Barcelona had started badly, with Mario Basler firing the German giants ahead after just six minutes. It would take United until second-half injury time to find an equaliser through Sheringham in the 91st minute. And United would famously not have to wait long for the winner, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer popping up with a goal two minutes later to fire Ferguson’s men into the history books.

Including Manchester United, seven clubs have won their domestic league, main cup and Champions League in the same season. Barcelona won the treble for a second time in 2014/15, whilst Bayern Munich also won trebles in 2012/13 and 2019/20 respectively. Celtic were the first British team to win the treble in 1966/67, whilst Ajax (1971/72), PSV (1987/88) and Inter Milan (2009/10) have also completed the extraordinary feat. Manchester City secured the first domestic treble in English football in 2018/19 with victories in the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup.

If Manchester City do indeed win the treble this season, it would not be the first time Pep Guardiola has achieved this feat in his career, with the Spanish tactician having claimed La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League with Barcelona in 2008/09.
