Man City vs Arsenal (EFL Cup Final) — LIVE UPDATES

"Winning 3-0 at Wembley is a massive result against any opponent".

And within moments, City had strengthened their grip on the final, Kompany touching home Ilkay Gundogan's drive after 58 minutes to leave them with one hand on the trophy.

Despite a brief glimmer of fight shown in the first half Man City took the Gunners apart pretty comprehensively.

Aguero stretched the Gunners' back line on a goal kick, as City strikers often do, to create space underneath. Their last encounter saw Manchester City come out victorious at the Etihad by a scoreline of 3-1.

In many ways, it might not have been how Guardiola imagined claiming his first honor in English football, in a second-tier competition, via atypical means. "It's worth every minute of hard work recovering from injury for days like this".

"Schoolboy. It really is shocking defending in all forms of football".

Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal side will be the first to admit that their performance wasn't up to scratch. "But if it is like in the second half then we can".

The good (?) news is Arsenal will soon have a chance to make amends.

Santi Cazorla and Alexandre Lacazette are both injured and unavailable for the tie.

The City manager, who was born in Catalonia, has previously explained his reasons for wearing the ribbon. Xhaka, walking. Ozil, walking.

The two teams meet agains on Thursday in the Premier League.

A quadruple quashed but a tempting treble still awaits Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City team.

"Against Wolves, he had three one-on-ones, saved three penalties, he deserves to play in the final and he's going to play". But when City doubled its lead, and then extended it to three, Gunners heads dropped.

The stage is set.

"We gave them a goal and were a bit unlucky in the second half, even if we didn't start well at all, and were punished". "They deserved the win today", he added.

Wenger's Arsenal beat City in last season's FA Cup semi-final before beating Chelsea in the final and Wenger insinuated that players are actually more important than managers and their philosophies using Barcelona as the perfect example.

"Sergio Aguero has been incredible, but sometimes you need to be fresh". "We were complacent, not focused, open when we lost ball and we had no ideas when we had the ball". While we have tipped Arsenal to win, this match should go beyond regulation time.
