    THE MATCH WINNER

    Premier League clubs and players will take part in a social media blackout next weekend in the continued fight against racism, but Aymeric Laporte has wasted no time in taking to Twitter this evening to celebrate City's cup success.

    KANE UNDER A CLOUD

    So much of the build-up to this final was centred around Harry Kane's availability.

    Whether fully fit or not, the Tottenham striker got the nod for selection but failed to either register a shot or create a chance for the first time in two and a half years.

    SON'S CRYING

    Nice one.

    It's unfortunate that one of the nicest guys in the Premier League is going to start a new series of memes, but when it's going against you…

    CITY CELEBRATE

    Fernandinho lifts the Carabao Cup Final for a record sixth time, and the fourth year in a row.

    FANTASTIC PHIL FODEN

    Maybe the City youngster should play in a European Super League all of his own.

    LUCKY LAPORTE?

    Aymeric Laporte may not have even played today had it not been for John Stones' suspension, but he's the man making headlines tonight after heading the winning goal in the Carabao Cup Final.

    However, the Frenchman could consider himself fortunate having avoided a booking early on for a foul on Lucas Moura before picking up a yellow later for a foul on the same player.

    FT: MAN CITY 1-0 SPURS

    Eight is the number! Manchester City win the League Cup for a joint-record eighth time thanks to Aymeric Laporte's goal eight minutes from time. Spurs will have their complaints that the matchwinner should not have even been on the pitch after twice fouling Lucas Moura in the first half, but the victory is no more than City deserved. Pep Guardiola's team were dominant from the off, creative on the ball and lacked only a killer instinct in the final third.

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    MANCHESTER CITY WIN THE CARABAO CUP!

    MAN CITY 1-0 SPURS

    90+2. Blue Moon rings around Wembley. Who knew 2,000 people could make such a noise? How we've missed football fans at games.

    MAN CITY 1-0 SPURS

    90+1. Brilliant footwork from Foden takes him past one, past two and into the area. His shot is blocked by Alderweireld.

    MAN CITY 1-0 SPURS

    90. Three minutes stand between Manchester City and their fourth League Cup success in a row.

    MAN CITY 1-0 SPURS

    89. Ryan Mason goes for broke by throwing on Steven Bergwijn in place of defender Serge Aurier.

    MAN CITY 1-0 SPURS

    88. Laporte is up an on the end of another set-piece, but this time he's off target with the header.

    MAN CITY 1-0 SPURS

    86. It's another change for City. De Bruyne departs to huge cheers from their 2,000 supporters, and is replaced by Bernardo Silva.

    MAN CITY 1-0 SPURS

    84. Despite the goal, Pep Guardiola goes ahead and makes his intended change with Fernandinho replaced by Rodrigo.

    MAN CITY 1-0 SPURS

    82. With eight minutes remaining, City have finally got their goal!

    Debate will rage, not over the goal itself, but whether the scorer should even be on the pitch.

    Aymeric Laporte is the man mobbed after heading in Kevin De Bruyne's free-kick at the far post, but his two earlier fouls on Lucas Moura – for which he was only cautioned once – are even harder for Spurs fans to swallow now.

    The Frenchman got up above compatriot Moussa Sissoko to glance his effort into the corner despite the desperate attempt of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg on the line.

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLL!!
    AYMERIC LAPORTE BREAKS THE DEADLOCK!!

    MAN CITY 0-0 SPURS

    80. There may only be a couple of thousand of them, but the Spurs fans get behind their team for the final barrage.

    Sterling wins a free-kick by the corner flag in front of them.

    MAN CITY 0-0 SPURS

    78. Pep Guardiola looks to be readying a change. He's certainly got a strong bench to choose from.

    MAN CITY 0-0 SPURS

    76. Reguillon gets in behind Walker, only for the City defender – fairly or unfairly – to win the ball back.

    There's no free-kick awarded but the Tottenham left-back looks in some discomfort, and it's Walker himself that eventually puts the ball of play so his opponent can receive treatment.

    MAN CITY 0-0 SPURS

    73. Great strike from Mahrez! An even better save from Lloris!

    The Spurs captain gets down to his right to push away the Algerian's effort from 22 yards.

    Mahrez has looked the player most likely to break the deadlock if anyone is to do so before extra-time.

    MAN CITY 0-0 SPURS

    72. Sterling gets beyond the Spurs backline, and then picks out Gundogan with a cross from the byline.

    It's perhaps a touch behind where the midfielder would have wanted it, andis ultimately unable to do much more than steer his snapshot of a volley well wide.

  • Sam Dymond

    MAN CITY 0-0 SPURS

    70. City win a corner, which they play long and get completely wrong.

    However, the Premier League leaders recycle to the ball to keep the attack alive, and a second cross finds Fernandinho arriving at the far post with a header that's straight into the hands of Lloris.

    69. City win a corner, which they play shot and get completely wrong.
