Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City picked up the Carabao Cup trophy after defeating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 in the final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday in front of fans.
Tottenham Hotspur were coached by academy graduate and former player, Ryan Mason who had his career cut short after he sustained a head injury in the 2016/17 season. Tottenham struggled to create chances to score any goals and both sides cancelled each other out until Manchester City defender, Aymeric Laporte stepped up with the decisive touch from a Kevin De Bruyne cross as he planted a header past Hugo Lloris in the Tottenham goal and into the net in the 82nd minute of the encounter as the game ended 1-0.
The result left Tottenham’s stars feeling distraught as they once again failed to win the club its first piece of silverware since 2008. Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side have now won the Carabao Cup in each of the last four seasons, and they look to win a treble this season as they are still in the running for both the UEFA Champions League and the English Premier League titles.
