Manchester City have won the Carabao Cup for a record-equaling eighth time after beating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 to lift the trophy for the fourth consecutive year. Pep and his men are conquerors of this competition.
Aymeric Laporte ended helping City the most as he headed home from Kevin De Bruyne’s free-kick in the 82nd minute to give Pep Guardiola’s side a thoroughly deserved victory.
A great win, let’s dive in the reaction-
