Arsenal 0:3 Manchester City Carabao Cup final Extended Highlights HD
City and his 30 th in 34 appearances this season – the fourth campaign in the last seven he has reached that mark. The striker’s contribution needed to be contrasted to the effort of Arsenal’s record signing, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who could have opened the scoring as early as the seventh minute but delayed when put clear on goal by Mesut Ozil, allowing Kyle Walker to make a superb recovery tackle and Bravo to smother the ball. Then Aubameyang, with his blistering pace, was sent through down the right and had a run on goal but Kompany impressively kept up with the striker before easing him off the ball.
Aguero certainly appeared to have the beating of Mustafi and out-smarted him close to half-time before crossing towards the far post where Laurent Koscielny hooked the ball away but only to Kevin De Bruyne who volleyed into the side-netting.
Arsenal appealed for a penalty when Nacho Monreal – who soon after had to be substituted after yet another injury set-back – threw himself to the turf claiming he was fouled by Kompany. The Arsenal defender was fortunate not to be booked for simulation while his team-mates demanded a second yellow card for Fernandinho after he challenged Jack Wilshere. Again it appeared Wilshere made the most of it and referee Craig Pawson was unmoved despite the attempts by Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey to make him bring out another card.
