It was an intense 120 minutes games but it ended well for Manchester City as they won by 4-3 goals in penalties. Manchester City was able to win the cup continuously for the fourth time since winning it back in the 2013-2014 season against Sunderland.
In the dying minutes of the game, we see Kepa was to be substituted after suffering from cramps after a shot from Sergio Aguero, however, he refused to leave the field which leaves Sarri furious.
However, the cup also meant a heavy price on Manchester City as two of its main players, Fernandinho and Laporte sustain injuries and could be a hard blow on City especially on the coming Champion League games.
Manchester city legend Zabaleta believe that they can still do it as he said,” Let’s be positive. They just have to go game by game now. Every single question is about the quadruple now. They have so much quality in that team to go for every single trophy but it is going to be tough.”
Jamie Redknapp also told Skysports, “The two players who are injured now are so important to them,”
Manchester City is on the second spot on the Premier League after Liverpool had a draw with Manchester United, which leaves them one point clear of City.
Manchester City will have their next Premier League game against
West Ham United. Meanwhile, in the champion League, they will be up against Schalke 04 after defeating by 3-2 goals in the first leg.
