Manchester City Beat Chelsea In The EFL Cup Final

Pep Guardiola secured his first piece of major silverware this season after Manchester City secured a victory over Chelsea in the EFL Cup final.

With the match 0-0 after 90 minutes, the reigning Premier League champions and the Blues went to battle in extra-time.

Of course, extra-time was not enough to break the deadlock between the two sides, leaving penalties to ultimately decide the winner.

However, Kepa Arrizabalaga refused to come off the pitch after Maurizio Sarri made the decision to sub him off.

It left the former Napoli boss irate, especially when the 24-year-old Spaniard forced him to back down from subbing Willy Caballero on.

The match wasn't without its other talking points, especially during the opening moments when Jorginho took down Sergio Agüero in the fastest foul in Wembley history.

How many trophies will City win this season?

Let us know in the comments.
