Manuel Pellegrini has favored Willy Caballero in cup matches since he signed with the Blues from Malaga. But like Roberto Mancini in the 2013 FA Cup Final versus Wigan the temptation to play Joe Hart his number one was must be weighing on the mind of Manuel Pellegrini heading into Sunday's League Cup Final against Liverpool.
The Blues have given Caballero every domestic cup match when fit since he arrived at the club almost two years ago in the summer of 2014. However, Caballero's performances however have been uneven and his few critical mistakes such as in the Premier League match at White Hart Lane in September have been magnified by negative scorelines.
My sense is Pellegrini will likely start Hart, the more reliable pair of hands on Sunday at Wembley., But is this the right decision or should Caballero who in theory earned the right to start the final be given the opportunity to close the tournament out?
