Sunday’s victory over Tottenham Hotspur ensured that Manchester City lifted their fourth straight Carabao Cup. It was a dominant performance by the men in Sky Blue. Aymeric Laporte steered a header into the back of the net in the 82nd minute.
Tottenham was forced to stay in their half for almost the game’s entirety but had a few occasional breakaways.

However, following the Carabao Cup triumph, ESPN understands that Kyle Walker was subjected to online racial abuse which is very disheartening to see. It is extremely saddening to understand and realize that racism still exists in this world and is very much a part of our community.
Kyle Walker was racially abused on Instagram by an unknown user and the full-back took to his Instagram story to put out a very question, “When is it going to end? @instagram”
Racism has got no place in this world and definitely not in Football as it is an equal game.
Manchester United’s Antony Martial and Marcus Rashford have been subjected to online abuse in the recent past. Reece James of Chelsea and Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane of Liverpool are also among the numerous names that have been subjected to such a cheap act by a few disoriented and lost individuals.
Instagram and Twitter have launched new efforts to counter the prevalent gregarious pest in society. English Football authorities had decided a day before the cup final a three-day boycott of social media would be followed next week. This shows and proves their stance of solidarity with the victims of online racial abuse and their strict stance against the offenders.
Manchester City and Kyle Walker must now put this behind them and focus on their all-important UEFA Champions League semi-final clash against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.
A treble is very much on the cards for the Sky Blues.
