    You don’t think United or Chelsea will be bothered this weekend then?

    So, realistically, what trophies should the big English clubs expect to have a chance of winning each season?

    Getting in the top 4 is more important than the FA Cup, hence why Wenger is finally off cos they won't do it this season (although could win Europa League and get in that way).

    Ok. Now what’s your answer to the question?

    ATM.

    League
    Champions League
    Champions league Place
    FA Cup
    League Cup
    Europa League Place

    In order of importance.

    Champions League win more important if you haven't won it like Man City.

    A champions league place is not a trophy, and winning the CL is not a realistic expectation for top English clubs.

    So the top two trophies that English clubs can realistically aim for are the League title and the FA Cup. Therefore the FA Cup is the 2nd biggest trophy English clubs can aim to win.
