Manchester City claimed the League cup title for the fourth consecutive time, after defeating Tottenham Hotspur by 1-0 at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
A brilliant performance by the City’s star players made them easy to cruise towards the victory. Manchester City has now equalized the record of Liverpool’s eight league cup titles.
Fans of Manchester City were demoralized and crushed earlier this month when Chelsea dramatically ended their journey in the FA Cup at the semifinals.
Manchester City celebrated their victory among 8000 spectators present at the Wembley stadium. The final of the league was envisioned to have spectators present in the stadium. It served as a pilot tester; making way for fans and crowds to return to the stadiums of the United Kingdom.
Both teams were allocated 2000 tickets each to distribute among their fans while the rest were open for the locals and residents along with the National Health Service workers.
Pep Guardiola was over the moon by the fantastic win of his team. He praised his team unapologetically for playing remarkably and winning the title consecutively fourth time.
He stated in a conference after the match that they as a team are ecstatic and mind blown by the results; as the figures suggest that they have won 30 out of 33 last played games.
The Tottenham fans were disappointed with the result and more so because the game was heavily dominated by the City’s players. Tottenham was simply outclassed by City stars in almost every avenue of the game.
Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez didn’t give any chance to the spurs to match them equally at any time of the match.
Manchester City kept on attacking the goal post but the Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris played a remarkable game and defended almost all the attacks mercilessly. The City managed to score the victorious goal to win the championship just in time.
The match officials were criticized for allowing spectators in the stadium amidst the growing cases of coronavirus but the ecstatic winner of the league claimed that they would love to see more spectators in the stadium in the future just like the pre-pandemic days.
