On February 25th 2018, Manchester City were crowned the winners of the League Cup.
The 3-0 League Cup final victory over Arsenal last season secured Manchester City their first trophy under Pep Guardiola, with goals coming from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva.
Loads of supporters were over the moon with the club’s performance in the final, as they took to Twitter to express their delight over the news that the final whistle had been blown.

Manchester City were starting to build up ahead of steam under Pep Guardiola in the Premier League this time last year and they already had a potential silverware opportunity to look forward to, with tomorrow being the one year anniversary of Guardiola securing his first trophy as Manchester City boss.
It was a very memorable day for all involved as the Citizens had to work hard to get to the final, with a penalty shoot-out win over Wolves and Leicester City making their journey all the more nervy. But, they finally made it to the final and they certainly made the most of it by putting in a dominant performance to embarrass Arsenal at Wembley.
Indeed, goals from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva sealed the deal for the Citizens.
Of course, winning the Premier League title will top Guardiola’s League Cup success in the eyes of many supporters, but the 25th of February 2018 will always be a memorable day as it was City’s first taste of success of in what is turning out to be a very special period with Guardiola at the Etihad.
