Man City suffered in EFL Cup triumph - Rodri

Man City suffered in EFL Cup triumph - Rodri

Sergio Aguero gave them the lead in the 20th minute after a good move involving Rodri and the impressive Phil Foden. It is consistency, being there every day - it's incredible.

On the "Stockport Iniesta", who many are expecting an imminent call up to Gareth Southgate's England squad, Guardiola said: "I want the best for him".

City rarely lose cup finals and have never done so with Guardiola at the helm.

"But I think the most lovely one is the Premier League and we're not going to win (it)".

As the clock ticked round towards 88 minutes Engels rose high to power a header goalwards but City keeper Bravo, starting instead of usual first choice Ederson, palmed his effort onto the post and away.

The difference in the desperation for success between the supports was obvious as Villa were roared on vociferously throughout, while City failed to sell out their allocation.

It was Aguero's 10th goal in his last six starts against Villa and a setback for the Midlands side who looked unlikely to recover when Rodri doubled the lead 10 minutes later. Anwar El Ghazi took advantage and crossed for Samatta to send a powerful header past Claudio Bravo.

Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola, has warned Liverpool that they will find it hard to stay on top in English football for the next couple of years. "We can't lose the hunger and not losing the appetite to not take advantage of getting another (trophy)".

It would be another 14 years until the League Cup would next head to Manchester, however, before a run of three trophies in five seasons.

"I always ask his opinion not only for this game because he obviously knows the club very well, but I think this is the way we work".

He has however made four Champions League appearances, and has managed two goals; both of which were against Dinamo Zagreb.

"Not many young players like myself could play in a team like this, so it just shows the belief the manager and the players have in me, which is really nice".

The Spaniard's Manchester City side have been all-conquering on the domestic scene in recent seasons, winning eight of the past nine domestic trophies including three consecutive League Cups.

Manchester United will be needing City to fail at the Court of Arbitration for Sport as it is now in fifth place and was held 1-1 at Everton on Sunday.

Wolverhampton is only trailing.
