Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Wembley Stadium when Arsenal and Manchester City face each other in the League Cup final. The Gunners set up a meeting with the Citizens in the title game by beating the likes of Doncaster, Norwich City, West Ham and Chelsea, but Pep Guardiola’s troops are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the capital club than their previous rivals. Arsene Wenger did well to bring the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the January transfer window and, no doubt, the duo will pose a big threat for the opposition defenders in Sunday’s football match. However, seeing that Manchester City have been producing terrific displays in all competitions this season, we are not tempted to put our money on Arsene Wenger’s charges. A real football festival is on the cards and we predict that the winner will be decided in the extra-time. You should bear in mind that Arsenal are eyeing their third League Cup trophy, whilst Man City are after their fifth title in the EFL Cup.
Highlighted Player (Alexandre Lacazette):
Alexandre Lacazette is a hometown boy of Lyon, a powerful striker who went through the youth ranks of the French side to become one of the most important players for Les Gones. The 25-year-old forward was also a member of all France national team selections becoming a European champion at the age of 19 by scoring the winner in the final against Spain. This goal gave him a reputation of a big game player, one he went on to uphold on various occasions at his club. Lacazette is a hard working forward an accomplished finisher of the ball able to score from different positions. The most prolific striker in his side and among the top ones in the Ligue 1, Alexandre Lacazette scored more than 20 league goals last two seasons on a trot. Constantly linked with a move away from Lyon, Alexandre Lacazette refuses to speak about anything other than his football and is leaving all the talk to the football pitch.
Highlighted Team (Manchester City):
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight. Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), butboth managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097. Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
