Arsenal 0-3 Man City: player ratings, stats and reaction as Gunners put in awful performance to gift Guardiola’s side League Cup

Manchester City claimed the first major trophy of the season as Pep Guardiola’s side comfortably beat Arsenal 3-0 at Wembley to win the League Cup.

The Premier League leaders opened the scoring in the 18th minute, after a fine lob from Sergio Aguero left David Ospina hopeless in the Arsenal goal.

Guardiola’s side then doubled their lead in the second half, after a shot from Ilkay Gundogan was turned home by captain Vincent Kompany.

David Silva then wrapped up the scoring a few minutes later to seal Guardiola’s first major trophy win as Man City manager.

Overall, Arsenal were very poor today, with the Gunners having one of their worst matches of the season as they effectively gifted Man City their third League Cup since 2014.

Player of the Match

Vincent Kompany was an absolute rock at the back for Man City today, with the Belgian being as commanding as ever to help his side win their first major trophy since 2016.

The defender even bagged himself a goal for his troubles as well, as the Citizens claimed the first major trophy of the English football season.
