But Spurs fans reckon Laporte should NOT have been on the pitch when he scored after committing two cynical fouls in the first half - with just one of them being a bookable offence.
He dragged down Lucas Moura without being punished before picking up a caution for another tackle on the Brazilian forward.
Sky Sports commentator Gary Neville thought the same as the Spurs supporters, saying the Frenchman should have received his marching orders by match referee Paul Tierney.

Laporte went onto score the only goal of the game to give City their fourth League Cup in a row.
Needless to say, the 26-year-old popping up near the end angered Spurs fans online while their rivals saw the funny side of the controversial incident.
Laporte should have been sent off. How was he not booked earlier on?!

Laporte has done that twice now, really don't get how he didn't receive a yellow for the first one. Poor refereeing #THFC

A second tweeted: "Laporte shouldn't be on the pitch."
A third added: "The guy who should be on 3 yellows. Couldn't write it."
The Blues will be looking to add the Premier League and Champions League to their trophy haul this campaign.
