Manchester City have taken another step towards an unprecedented Quadruple after finally breaking their Champions League quarter-final hoodoo.

Pep Guardiola's side are closing in on reclaiming their league crown from Liverpool and could yet add a domestic cup double, as well as the Champions League trophy that has so far eluded them.

Here, we detail the Premier League permutations as the 2020/21 campaign reaches crunch time, mark the key dates elsewhere and get the verdict of Treble-winner Gary Neville on their chances of going one better...

Premier League: City 11 points from glory

Manchester City suffered a rare defeat to Leeds last time out in the Premier League.

Combined with Manchester United's win at Tottenham, the result means City's commanding lead has been shaved from 14 points to 11.

United still have a game in hand, so would cut the deficit to eight if they beat Burnley at home on April 18.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side could get to 84 points if they win all their remaining games.

City's vastly superior goal difference means that 10 points would effectively seal the title but 11 would make sure - and that would presume United continued to win all their games.

City's next Premier League assignment is a rescheduled trip to Aston Villa on April 21 but commitments in other competitions mean City will have to wait until May for any fireworks and ticker-tape.

City's subsequent Premier League fixtures are due to be at Crystal Palace on May 1 and then at home to Chelsea on May 8. If they win those three games, regardless of United's results, Guardiola's team would secure the Premier League title with victory at Newcastle on May 12 - and effectively, with a draw.

There will be no Centurions repeat this season but Guardiola will hope to see his side get as close as possible to the maximum 92 points that their remaining games afford.

Carabao Cup: Tottenham the last hurdle

Before any Premier League coronation, City will hope to have another cup in the cabinet.

Manchester City kept alive their hopes of winning a fourth consecutive Carabao Cup after beating rivals Manchester United in the semis.

The holders will face Jose Mourinho's Tottenham in the final at Wembley on Sunday, April 25 (kick-off 4pm).

FA Cup: Chelsea up next

City have also booked a Wembley date in the FA Cup.

Guardiola's side will take on Chelsea in the semi-finals on Saturday, April 17, with the final at the same venue - potentially in front of 20,000 fans - on May 15.

City have exited the Champions League at the quarter-final stage for the past three seasons but they finally broke their hoodoo under Guardiola with a 4-2 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund.

City now face another heavyweight opponent in Paris Saint-Germain for a place in the final, with the semi-final first leg set for April 27/28 and the decider on May 4/5.

City will be desperate to line up at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul on May 29.

If they make it, will they be 90 minutes or more from the Quadruple?

Neville's verdict: Will City do it?

Sky Sports' Gary Neville, speaking on the Gary Neville Podcast:

"Is the Quadruple credible for City? The league is theirs. You can't say the FA Cup is theirs - but what a chance.

"I do think Tottenham, in a one-off game [in the Carabao Cup final], can do something. They've got matchwinners; they've got players who can counter and live off three, four attacks. With Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane, they might only need three chances in a game to score two and with the likes of Steven Bergwijn, Lucas Moura and Son, they can counter-attack.

"The teams that do well against City are the ones who've got really electric players who can get back into their shape quickly but then get back up the pitch quickly and break City's counter-press.

"Tottenham can cause them a problem but I think City will win the League Cup.

"The Champions League is the one that's always the most difficult. In the Champions League, there's always a team that can come and do to you what Manchester United did to City a few weeks ago.

"They are good enough; they've got the talent and they've got the squad.

"I don't think City will ever get a better chance."
