Manchester City booked their place in the Carabao Cup final following a 5-3 aggregate victory over Bristol City.

It means the Premier League leaders will be there at Wembley Stadium on February 25 to compete against either Arsenal or Chelsea for the first trophy of the season.

The quadruple dream remains alive.

Huge credit should be paid to Lee Johnson’s Bristol City side, who showed great courage in both legs.

Last night, they came back from 2-0 down to level the scores but Kevin De Bruyne added a third for Man City in the dying moments of the match.

It should’ve been easy for the Citizens but Bristol City refused to go down without a fight, and they’ve earned many fans with their courageous effort in the Carabao Cup.

Including Man City’s Benjamin Mendy, who took to Twitter to express his desire to see Bristol City in the Premier League next season.


Fans aren't happy with Sane's celebration

You only need to see Leroy Sane’s celebration for his opener to realise that Man City were fully aware that their opponents posed a legitimate threat.

The German opened the scoring when he swept the ball home in the 43rd minute, making it 3-1 on aggregate.

And Sane reacted by rubbing it in to Bristol City’s fans, running towards them holding his finger up to his lips in a shushing gesture.


He also motioned them to calm down in a similar manner that Cristiano Ronaldo did to Barcelona supporters at the Camp Nou in 2012.


Football fans weren’t at all pleased with Sane’s celebration. Check out the reaction below.

Guardiola's chuffed to be in the final 

Guardiola expressed his delight after reaching his first final as Man City boss.

“We are so happy to be in the final,” he said, per City’s website.

“For everybody involved, to reach this final, we played an amazing game.


“We were two goals ahead and after that we lost the control and, you know, in these kinds of games it never ends until the end – and this will be a good lesson for the next Sunday in Cardiff and especially in the Champions League.

“We are going to try. But Chelsea and Arsenal are strong teams and anything can happen.”
