Pep Guardiola’s Cityzens Celebrate Winning the UEFA Super Cup.

Manchester City secured the Uefa Super Cup, extending their Treble triumph from the previous year, as they triumphed over Sevilla on penalties in Athens.

Despite losing the Community Shield to Arsenal, Pep Guardiola's Cityzens turned their luck around when Sevilla's Nemanja Gudelj struck the crossbar in the shootout.

The Premier League champions City came from behind to level the score during an exciting match, with Youssef En-Nesyri's towering header giving Sevilla the lead before Cole Palmer's looping header brought City back into the game.

Outstanding saves from goalkeepers Bono and Ederson added to the intensity. Ultimately, Guardiola's team clinched another piece of silverware for their collection.

'Luckily it went in and was the winning one.'

Following the match, Man City right-back Kyle Walker told TNT Sports: "It was always going to be a tough game. The lads put in a good performance. We have to be more clinical but we got the job done.

"If anyone played with me they know I don’t like taking penalties because I don't like letting people down if I miss. Pep put me in at five. [I wanted to] show leadership. Luckily it went in and was the winning one."

When asked what he thought of Cole Palmer’s performance, the England defender stated: "This guy is incredible and he’s got good players to learn off and the best manager in the world. He needs to keep going, keep his feet on the floor like he has been and keep scoring goals. If he keeps improving he’ll be fine.

"Good teams capitalise on people’s mistakes. We rode our luck and we got there. There were tough conditions, everyone sweating, and you can see it was really hot.

"We've come away with this cup. To win this and put it in the trophy cabinet at City is a good feeling."
