Man City Are The Favorites To Win The Carabao Cup:
Man City will now be chasing the Carabao Cup trophy after defeating Liverpool in the competition. However, they are also on the verge of equalizing Pool’s record of winning the trophy nine times.
With all the London Giants like the gunners, Tottenham and Chelsea are all knocked out from the cup race, the major threat to Pep’s Man City is going to be the Red Devils, their next door rivals or probably Newcastle United.
But boss Pep Guardiola with his team are unquestionably favorites to continue dominating the league, regardless of who they need to beat to capture the trophy at Wembley in February.
Only Pool from the previous year and Manchester United from 2017 were able to pry the Efl away from City’s grasp. City have now won 5 of the past 7 competitions.
Guardiola, a former manager of Barça and Bayern, has led Man City to 9 major titles since he took over the side in the summer of 2016, along with a domestic triple in 2018–19.
