Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City players have set themselves the target of winning every competition they compete in this season, Kyle Walker has revealed.

Last season’s record-breaking title-winners will aim for the quadruple of Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League.

Their minimum target is to match their 100-point total from 2017-18, and the reigning champions of England are determined to secure as much silverware as possible.

‘To win another trophy with City, it’s a fantastic start to the season,’ said Walker after Sunday’s 2-0 win over Chelsea in the Community Shield.

‘The minimum is to do what we achieved last season. What we achieved was incredible, 100 points. But we have to demand that the bare minimum is last season. We set the bar. 

'We set it so high that we have to try to raise it. Everyone in that dressing room is not going to settle for anything less. I know the gaffer wants to win everything he can and so do his players. We are striving to achieve big things this season.’

Last season, City lost in the Champions League quarter-finals to Liverpool and were shocked by Wigan in the FA Cup fifth round. They went on to win the League Cup by beating Arsenal 3-0 in the final.

Walker played the full 90 minutes against Chelsea on Sunday, despite only returning to training three days earlier following the World Cup.

The 28-year-old cut short his holiday to be back after being given the option by City’s manager.

‘He said you can either come back on August 6 after the Community Shield, or you can come back and compete,’ said Walker. ‘There was no doubt in my mind I wanted to be here.’
