If Manuel Pellegrini is going to be forced out of Manchester City he has every intention of taking some silverware with him to his next job. After the club spend a fortune to bring talent to Etihad Stadium this year, the Citizens are poised to reward the liberally spending ownership with their first trophy win since the 2013-14 season thanks to Fernandinho.
With the two clubs emerging from the lockers at the start of the second half tied 0-0, the draw only stood for four minutes before the Brazilian midfielder took a shot at Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet that slipped under his arms and into the post for a Man City goal.
UPDATE: As of writing the Capital One League Cup Final has passed the 70′ mark with the score still Liverpool 0-1 Manchester City.
Manuel Pellegrini will be replaced by Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola at the end of the season after a disappointing last couple of seasons. He led the club to the Premier League title in the 2013-14 season.
