The Carabao Cup final will witness a high-voltage game between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium. Manchester City will be targeting their fourth EFL Cup on the trot and they are firm favorites ahead of this game. City recently lost their FA Cup semi-final to Chelsea and would be itching to get hands on this silverware. Tottenham have not won the title in 13 years and they would hope for a miracle in this game.
Kevin de Bruyne will be missing out on this game because of an ankle injury. John Stones was flashed a red card in the last game and therefore he will be missing out on this game.
Harry Kane is likely to miss out because of an ankle injury. Ben Davies has a calf problem and he will be missing out on this game.
The Citizens are coming on the back of a 2-1 win over Aston Villa and that was a clear indication that they had bounced back after the FA Cup semi-final exit. Phil Foden and Rodri had scored goals for City and it was an absolute comprehensive win. A Carabao Cup win in this game will make sure City win the title for the 8th time and for the 4th successful time.
Tottenham have recently sacked their manager Jose Mourinho and they had won the last game without him. They are coming on the back of a 2-1 win over Southampton and should have the necessary confidence and momentum to take on a giant team like Manchester City. Gareth Bale and Son Heung-min had scored goals. The penalty came in the 90th minute and Heung-min ensured Tottenham got 2 extra points. The Spurs are presently in the 7th position of the table.
