Chelsea 0 – 0 Manchester City (AET – 3-4 on pens) #CarabaoCupFinal... Watch Video

Raheem Sterling scored the winning penalty as Manchester City beat Chelsea to retain the Carabao Cup at Wembley.
After a goalless 120 minutes, City eventually prevailed 4-3 on spot-kicks to win their sixth League Cup title, the second-most of any club behind Liverpool (8).
Despite the lack of goals the game was not without its drama, and there will be discussion for some while to come over Kepa Arrizabalaga’s refusal to be substituted for Willy Caballero shortly before the shootout.

Kepa saved one penalty from Leroy Sane, but City converted their other four and Jorginho and David Luiz both missed to leave Maurizio Sarri still without a trophy in his managerial career and Pep Guardiola’s side one trophy down on the potential journey to a quadruple.

When these two sides met just a fortnight ago at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City were four up after just 25 minutes on their way to a 6-0 Premier League win, but this was a far tighter affair. The first real sight of goal took 22 minutes to come around when Bernardo Silva floated a lovely ball into the path of Sergio Aguero, who took a smart touch to open up some space but then fired over.
