Manchester City Reach Carabao Final, But History Favors Tottenham

After struggling at the start of the 2020/21 season, Manchester City are starting to find their form.

At the start of December 2020, Manchester City won their UEFA Champions League group, and they progressed to the competition’s Round of 16. The Sky Blues have also gone on an undefeated run since December 1, where they have won seven of these 10 games and they drew the remaining three. They have also kept a clean sheet in seven of these 10 matches, and they only conceded three goals in this process. This impressive record has come against the likes of Man United (twice), Arsenal, and Chelsea.

After earning crucial results in the Champions League and the English Premier League throughout the month of December, the Sky Blues will now find themselves in the first final of the 2020/21 season. Man City defeated Arsenal 1-4 in the Carabao Cup’s Quarterfinals, and then they beat cross-town rivals Manchester United in the competition’s Semifinals. The results mean that City will advance to the Carabao Cup final for a fourth consecutive season. City have previously won the competition on seven of their eight attempts, and they have most recently won the competition for three consecutive seasons.

City will face Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup Final. Tottenham last made the League Cup Final in 2015, where they lost to Chelsea.

The Spurs, however, will have history on their side. Tottenham and City have previously faced each other in cup finals on three occasions. The Spurs are undefeated in these encounters. Moreover, Spurs and City have faced each other on 17 occasions in cup competitions. Spurs won nine of these cup ties and drew three while City have won the remaining five matches.

The Carabao Cup Final will take place on Sunday, 25 April.
