The decisive goal for the Citizens, who are also in the Champions League as semifinalists in the title race, was marked by Iameric Laporte in the 82nd minute. Manchester were one-way better in the first half and created several chances, but did not score. The city was clearly better in the second 45 minutes as well, but had to wait a long time before Laporte decided.

With the fourth success, Mancity draws level with Liverpool’s record. The “Reds” won the League Cup four times in a row from 1981 to 1984.

The final game was part of a government pilot program to test the return of a large number of spectators. In the FA Cup final on 15 May, even 21,000 spectators will be allowed to enter Wembley Stadium, which has 90,000 seats.
