The Capital One Cup comes to a dramatic climax today as Manchester City take on Sunderland at Wembley.
Manuel Pellegrini’s City have been scoring for fun this season and they were perhaps at their most clinical in the semi-finals as they thrashed West Ham 9-0 over two legs with two stunning performances at both the Etihad Stadium and Upton Park.
Sunderland, on the other hand, more than deserve to be in the final after seeing off Chelsea and Manchester United on their route to Wembley.
Gus Poyet has given the Black Cats a new lease of life since taking over from Paolo Di Canio and will hope to add some silverware to his success as manager so far.
It will be a tough ask for Poyet’s men to overcome a City side that’s still in the race for a historic and record breaking quadruple, but they will know that anything can happen on the day and will take confidence in City’s slight wobble in recent weeks.
