Manchester City beat Tottenham Hotspur with a zero goal at the congested Wembley Stadium to win their fourth consecutive League Cup trophy on Sunday. Pep Guardiola’s men dominated the North London thoroughly, but they had to wait 82 minutes to take the lead. The city was left frustrated by the determined Spurs defense until Aymeric Laporte drove the winner home eight minutes ahead of time.
The hunt for Tottenham Hotspur for the grand prize continues, but now is the time to focus on the Premier League with Harry Kane and him. Manchester City, on the other hand, is turning its attention to the fat semi-finals of the Champions League against St. Germain of Paris.
Riyad Mahrez’s career in Manchester City didn’t go any way. After a disappointing first season, the Algerian improved in his second year, but struggled with consistency. However, the former PFA Player of the Year award winner has returned at his best this season and is showing his enchanting qualities to the first fans of the season at the stadium.
Mahrez played relatively easily with Spurs defenders, leaving Sergio Reguilon to guess throughout the game. He made a great hit several times and would have been on the scoreboard if he hadn’t received fantastic savings from Hugo Lloris.
Harry Kane was hungry on duty when he came back in surprise
For the longest time, Harry Kane was believed to be in physical condition, unable to compete in today’s cup final. However, England’s Talisman passed a late fitness test and interim coach Ryan Mason threw him straight into the base. Unfortunately, it wasn’t Kane’s dream return because he had a largely forgettable night.
Tottenham had only 37% of the ball and tried only two shots, only one of which was a goal. A unique shot at the finish also came from Giovanni Lo Celson’s shoe, which tells of Kane’s participation in the game. The 27-year-old did his best to set up his teammates, but was a spectator in much of the game. Ignoring his influence in the match was crucial for City to win the trophy.
Arsenal focuses on the French playmaker
It’s safe to say that Arsenal’s season hasn’t gone according to plan so far, so it’s no wonder the Gunners are already preparing for the summer transition window.
According to the Caught Offside Daily Mail, Premier League giants are considering moving forward in front of Real Betis star Nabil Fekir. Arsenal are desperate to add creativity to their team next season and believe the French playmaker would be an ideal match for the role.
As a product of the Academy of Lyon, Fekir made his first debut on the French team in 2013. He became an important part of the first team and was close to Liverpool in the summer of 2018, just before the deal. collapse at the last minute. The Frenchman finally moved to Real Betis in July 2019 and has been in good shape recently. Fekir has already scored four goals in 34 matches in La Liga this season and is working in a position that has been a problem for Arsenal lately.
The gunners have longed for Mesut Özil’s vision this season when the German left the club in January. Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard was borrowed as an alternate during the winter transfer period, and while the Norwegian has a great advantage for the team, Arsenal are unlikely to secure their services permanently this summer. It has forced the Shooters to turn their attention to the Real Betis star.
Fekir can be a great addition to the Arsenal team, and with a 27-year-old man at the peak of his career, he could provide a service that Gunners strikers have desperately missed this season. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has struggled to achieve his goals this season, having succeeded in just 14 out of 33 appearances in all competitions, having registered 31 and 29 goals in the last two seasons. Fekir’s arrival could rejuvenate the Gabonese and help him find the lost form. Arsenal have already lost 13 matches in the Premier League this season
Arsenal got another hit as they tried to get on the table on Saturday as they surrendered to a 0-1 loss at home against Everton over Bert Leno’s howling monkey. Mikel Arteta’s team is leaving 31 points behind current manager Manchester City, and five games have to be played. The Gunners have competed for their creativity this season and are currently upright.
