Manchester City’s hopes of securing an unprecedented quadruple may have been ended by Chelsea last weekend but Pep Guardiola’s men still have the chance to land an impressive treble this season, starting with the Carabao Cup on Sunday.
But to do so, they will have to beat a Tottenham side who are looking to claim their first trophy since 2008.
Spurs may have reached the Champions League final in 2019 but they have not lifted silverware since beating Chelsea 2-1 in extra time of the 2008 League Cup final, having also tasted final defeat in the same competition in 2009 and 2015.
The North London club will be led into the Carabao Cup final by the Premier League ’s youngest ever manager, Ryan Mason, following Jose Mourinho’s sacking on Monday.
Mason started his reign as interim head coach against Southampton on Wednesday night – the same night City faced Aston Villa.
This season Guardiola’s men had been hoping to become the first English club to win the ‘quadruple’ – the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup. But Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final means they can now only lift three trophies this season.
What time is Man City vs Tottenham Hotspur?
Kick-off in the Carabao Cup final is at 4.30pm on Sunday, April 25 and will take place at Wembley Stadium in front of 8,000 fans – the most a UK sporting event has hosted since the first lockdown in March 2020.
It is just over two months since these sides last met, when Ilkay Gundogan’s brace and a Rodri penalty gave City a 3-0 victory.
This followed back-to-back 2-0 wins for Spurs against the Manchester club following the appointment of Mourinho.
