Wembley Stadium. Final. That sounds so good, and it sounds even better when your team is involved. Manchester City will be hoping to win a second League Cup in three years when they face Arsenal in the home of English football, and this promises to be a LOT of fun.
The Gunners will be looking to win their first League Cup under Arsene Wenger, while Pep Guardiola wants to get his hands on his first trophy as City manager. The Blues have been the best team in Europe so far, and winning some silverware will validate their amazing season.
But things aren’t as perfect as they used to be for City. After a shock FA Cup exit to away to League One Wigan Athletic, there are some important questions to be answered about this team.
Will City rebound from Monday’s loss and show hunger and urgency to win a title? Will they be affected by that loss and lose a second trophy in a week? Is this team mentally strong enough to bounce back from their first bad result of the season and beat one of the top teams in the Premier League to win a title?
We’ll get all the answers today at Wembley, and this game promises to be really fantastic. Do not miss it.
