    Carabao Cup Finale. Sunday.

    Go Arsene :drool: Mkhi magic for this game, Ozil's magical pass, and Auba to score.

    So they’ll play with 11 players. Hope they make it count.

    Just checked, and yup he cannot play. Assuming Arsenal win, I guess that means he won't get a medal.

    Not confident, but at least we have Aubameyang back instead of that tool called Welbeck.

    It's strange how little Mkhi & Auba have played for Arsenal since their moves compared to Sanchez for us, consequence of you buying cup tied players. Auba especially is still very much an unknown quantity and could be a surprise for City

    If we'd beaten Wigan I honestly wouldn't care if we won or not (though I'd have liked to win) but given we lost and we have a really, really tough run of fixtures coming up I think we kind of need to win the LC now. Don't wanna play that run on the back of 2 losses.

    Think Arsenal will be up for it and will be a good game. If Arsenal can get Auba on the shoulder of the last man and Ozil is on his game they could get a lot of joy straight through the middle or in the channels between FB and CB. Should be an entertaining game.

    Yep, they were 2 weird and desperate transfers at the same time. We needed some big names to calm our supporters down, regardless of what it would have meant in the end.

    Positives of us if Arsenal win:

    City lose out on another trophy
    Arsene wins another trophy, keeping him at Arsenal longer :drool:

    Arsenal will turn up for this and win, just like they always do at Wembley.

    Wenger has a great fa cup final record 7 of 8, but has a terrible record in others, 0 from 2 in the league cup.

    Come on Man City! Hope Arsenal get demolished.

    It will actually be a close game. Man City favourites of course but don't write Arsenal off

    I just hope we beat Chelsea so I can sit down and watch this also because if we get a negative result I'm done with football for the next week

    Looks like KDB on the wing today, strange one. I'd imagine it'll be

    -----------Bravo-----------
    Walker-Komps-Otame-Danilo
    ------------fern------------
    -------Gundo--Silva--------
    KDB------------------Sane
    ------------Kun-----------

    This is the exact reason our form dropped off last season, when we tried to shoehorn Silva, Guno and KDB in the same team after a great start. That time it was forcing silva to the left wing.

    City are too cool to wear a cup final suit aren't they. Turtle necks and fashionable macs.

    Sterling injured?

    All city need to do is keep Arsenal quiet for 15 minutes, then arsenal will self destruct.

    Of course I want Arsenal to do the unrealistic thing and win here. Worried by Chambers in their defense. Would cap a great day of football seeing City lose.

    I actually think Arsenal have a chance. They've done pretty well in the cups in recent years.

    2-2, Arsenal on penalties.
