Arsenal graciously decided to no-show the 2018 Carabao Cup Final to hand Pep Guardiola his first trophy as Man City manager.
City were barely forced to get out of second gear on their way to a 3-0 victory at Wembley, with goals from the old guard – Sergio Aguero (his first in a cup final), Vincent Kompany and David Silva (his first ever goal in the League Cup – sealing the deal against minimal resistance.
In truth, Arsenal were pathetic as they slumped to their sixth defeat of the calendar year, with exasperated fans exiting the stadium in droves in the second half, leaving it half-empty by the time the full time whistle threeped.

Indeed, it was the first time the Gunner have conceded thrice at Wembley for almost two decades, the last time being a 4-2 defeat against Barcelona in the Champions League group stage in 1999.
Arsene Wenger’s side were truly miserable; defensively frail and forlornly flaccid in ‘attack’ (for want of a better word) while the entire game just passed them by.
Will there be any repercussions? What do you think…
