Manchester City continues its quest for more hardware on Wednesday when it visits PSG for the first leg of the 2021 UEFA Champions League semifinals. The Cityzens also are looking to win their third Premier League title in four seasons as they own a 10-point lead over Manchester United with five matches remaining.
