scoring the final kick to secure the trophy
Manchester City lifted the League Cup at
Wembley after beating Liverpool 3-1 on
penalties after the game had finished 1-1
after extra-time.

Fernandinho struck the opener after 49
minutes, Sergio Aguero feeding his
overlapping run inside the box and his shot
across goal going through Simon Mignolet and
into the far corner.

City threatened to double their lead on the
hour mark, Raheem Sterling guilty of firing
wide against his former team when clean
through on goal and with only Mignolet to

Minutes later and Aguero was denied a
penalty after tangling with Moreno before
Sterling was guilty of another glaring miss
when inside the box.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men were made to pay
for their profligacy, Phillipe Coutinho firing
Liverpool back on level terms with their first
shot on target on 83 minutes and forcing the
game into extra-time.

Aguero thought he had fired City back into
the lead at the end of the first period but
his flicked effort was brilliantly saved by
Mignolet before Caballero denied Divock Origi
in a frantic finale.
