Can Liverpool win the quadruple?
Yes! Liverpool may be keen to dismiss all mention of it but (whisper it) the quadruple is still on.
The Reds already have two trophies this season having lifted the League Cup on 27 February and the FA Cup on 14 May, defeating Chelsea on penalties on both occasions. Their battle with Manchester City for the Premier League title, meanwhile, will go to the final day on 22 May, six days before the UEFA Champions League final.
Has a team ever won the quadruple before?
Celtic's Lisbon Lions – in 1966/67 – are the only team to date to have lifted a quadruple of European Cup, domestic league, domestic cup and domestic league cup in the same season. League Cups are played in a minority of countries, including England, Portugal and France, although the latter competition has not taken place since 2019/20. Liverpool won a quadruple of sorts in 2000/01, albeit with the UEFA Cup.
Has an English team ever won the treble?
Manchester United are the only English team to date to win the treble of European Cup, domestic league and domestic cup, in 1998/99. The closest Liverpool have come to the treble was in 1976/77, when they won the league and their first European Cup either side of losing the FA Cup final 2-1 to – you guessed it – Manchester United. United fell short of a quadruple, though, exiting the League Cup at the quarter-final stage.
Which teams have won the treble?
* Also won Scottish League Cup
