Manchester City clinches fourth consecutive Carabao Cup

Manchester City lifted the Carabao Cup for a record-equalling fourth consecutive time on Sunday, following a deserved 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in front of 8,000 fans, at Wembley.

After a barren first half, City defender Aymeric Laporte headed home Kevin de Bruyne’s free-kick to break the deadlock, seven minutes from stoppage time.

Pep Guardiola’s men were the better side and completely outplayed Tottenham who following Jose Mourinho’s sack on Monday, is now being coached by the caretaker manager, Ryan Mason.

City’s victory equalled Liverpool’s achievement in the early 1980s of winning the competition four years in a row, as well as matching the Reds’ overall tally of eight trophies. 

With one trophy in the bag, Manchester City will now move their attention to the Champions League on Wednesday when they travel to France to take on Paris St-Germain on Wednesday for the first leg of their semi-final ties, before paying Crystal Palace a visit in the Premier League on Saturday, May 2.
While a rather frustrated Tottenham wi host the Premier League’s bottom side Sheffield United on Sunday, May 2 with the hope of a bounce-back victory.
