Manchester City Win the First of a Possible Four Trophies

The Carabao Cup final was billed to be a blockbuster match, drawing to a close months of jam-packed soccer action. It featured two of the English Premier League’s heavyweights in high flying Manchester City and London-based side Chelsea Football Club. The match didn’t live up to the build-up, however there was still much to talk about. The final result was a stalemate at 0-0 after extra time and it needed penalties to settle the tie. Read on to find out the highlights of the match and the odds for Man City wining the quadruple.

Much of the frenzy did not emanate from the football played on the field. It seemed both teams were quite conservative in their attack and chances were few and far between. City were meant to rely sporadic counter attacks and could not make their overwhelming possession of the ball count for much. The talking point of the game came in extra time when Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga refused to be substituted minutes before the penalty shootout. The scenes sent the fans into a frenzy at the London's Wembley Stadium, which made Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri even more livid.
