Manchester City are Carabao Cup champions once again as Pep Guardiola’s side secured a fourth straight League Cup title thanks to a late 1-0 win over Tottenham.

Eight thousand returning fans were not treated to a classic at Wembley Stadium but thanks to Aymeric Laporte’s late header, City’s treble chance remains firmly on track.

As expected it was City that completely dominated the first 45 as Spurs looked to dig in and hit them on the counter.

Teenage superstar Phil Foden was denied as dream Wembley goal as Toby Alderweireld diverted his effort against the post before Riyad Mahrez swerved one just wide and Hugo Lloris stretched himself to keep out Joao Cancelo.

Tottenham did look to crank it up slightly just after the restart however as Zak Steffen made a diving stop from Giovani Lo Celso.

And with City struggling to get the momentum together in the final half hour, Spurs interim boss Ryan Mason threw on Gareth Bale and Moussa Sissoko to try and turn the tide.

But the Frenchman was to play a role the wrong end as City sealed a fourth straight EFL Cup win.

Kevin De Bruyne’s free kick into the box was a peach and Laporte got the run on Sissoko to power past Lloris.

Full Time from Wembley Stadium it’s Manchester City 1 Tottenham 0
