Late Manchester City goal ends silverware dreams for Tottenham Hotspur in Carabao Cup final

The wait for a trophy at Tottenham Hotspur continues as a late goal from Aymeric Laporte handed Manchester City their fourth Carabao Cup final win in a row.

Spurs came into this game knowing that a win would mean the club’s first trophy since 2008. With Jose Mourinho sacked, Tottenham were led by interim manager Ryan Mason.

The Lilywhites never looked like scoring and were always the second-best team throughout the game. But somehow, the score stayed 0-0 until the 82nd minute.

However, it was not to last. Aymeric Laporte rose highest to head in the game’s only goal just 8 minutes before regular time after a peach of a cross from Kevin De Bruyne bamboozled Tottenham’s defence. The reaction to the goal from Spurs players said it all.

Their heads dropped and shoulders were slouched. A comeback looked unlikely and even the fans could feel that the goal from the French defender had sealed their fate.

Harry Kane was a doubt for the game but started and played the full 90 minutes. Mason brought on all the goal-threat present on the bench but it was not enough.

Heartbreak at Wembley

And luck was also not on Spurs’ side it seemed. John Stones’ red card against Aston Villa in the Premier League last week prevented the Englishman from starting this game.

The to-be goal-scorer Laporte came in his place. The hunt for a trophy this season is officially over, with Spurs not in any cup competitions now and acres behind in the Premier League title race.

The only aim that remains seems to be a race for a top 4 finish. Tottenham are 5 points away from 4th-placed Chelsea and would be hoping that they can scale the difference in the remaining 5 games.

But the loss against City on Sunday will stay with the fans for a while, and could possibly also affect the players and manager psychologically going forward this season.

The fans took to Twitter to share their despair. Here are some of the reactions from that forgettable final, including their anger directed at Laporte not being booked for 1 of his two tactical fouls.
