Africans in the League Cup Final: A history

Africans in the League Cup Final: A history

Both clubs have suffered setbacks in recent weeks. Should he be on the winning side on Sunday, he'd be the fourth Nigerian to win England's secondary cup competition.

That season coincided with Pep Guardiola taking charge of Barcelona B. The Spaniard won the Tercera Division in his lone season at the helm.

Unlike their FA Cup record, Arsenal have won the League Cup with its ever-changing sponsor names only twice, in 1987 and 1993, and have been runners-up five times.

Manchester City's quadruple hopes may have been ruined by Wigan, but they will still be hoping to claim their first silverware of the season.

Whether leading the line, in goal or anywhere in between, Arsenal will be looking for a cup hero.

"It's true that I always used to use this competition with a youth team".

This is a notable game in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's unusual, embryonic Arsenal career, in which he has not found it too easy to gel with his new team recently as they played in the Europa League while he is ineligible.

Guardiola, who made 263 appearances for Barcelona FC between 1990 and 2001, is now the manager of Manchester City FC. Arsenal have some great players and they have just made some excellent signings. The odds for three goals or more are not particularly attractive, but when combined with a Manchester City win, the price of [2.1] is far more appealing. But that isn't especially useful for this game, because both teams will use their reserve goalies, sticking to the policy that has got them to this stage. And as Arsenal now brace to go up against Guardiola's Manchester City side, a repeat of the same dominating performance in the middle of the park could make him the promised prince again.

But he also said that doesn't justify President Trump's refusal to enact new sanctions against Russian Federation last month. Earlier, top Russian and American officials exchanged barbs in Germany over the United States indictment of 13 Russians .

The platform is also there for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to make his first real impression in a Gunners shirt. Like Özil and Ramsey, he'll be a last-minute addition to the lineup if he's fit to play.

Mohamed Elneny may also be involved in Sunday's clash, although after an underwhelming showing against Ostersunds in midweek, perhaps the best he can hope for is a spot on the Arsenal bench. And Mesut Ozil should play having been ill last week. Oleksandr Zinchenko or Danilo could feature with Benjamin Mendy (knee) out long term.

Elsewhere, Raheem Sterling is a doubt and his replacement is most likely to be Bernardo Silva.

The win could prove to be a massive morale-booster for the remainder of the season as the Gooners gun for a top-four finish and a strong show in the Europa League. Can the Gabonese striker perform at the same level in English football as he did in German football?

And it wouldn't be the experienced former Chelsea man Petr Cech.

Stones has a different problem.

"Arsenal may play a cautious game and play two holding midfield players".
