Can City become record holders?
Manchester City have the chance to match two Carabao Cup records today.
If they are successful, City will join record holders Liverpool on the most wins with eight and they could also match the Reds’ record for most consecutive victories, with the great side of the early 1980s also claiming four on the bounce.
City’s recent record is truly remarkable, with five wins in the last seven years and they could make it six in eight today.
Considering the club’s primary objective seems to be winning a Champions League and considering other teams’ tendency to rotate in the competition, Pep Guardiola should be praised for how seriously he takes the Carabao Cup.
