Wenger vows to attack Man City in League Cup final

Noah Ferguson | 25 February, 2018, 18:10

"Us", he says, looking nearly affronted by the temerity of the question.

We believe Jack Wilshere could be the catalyst on Sunday. "Now try to win". "All we can do is learn from Wigan".

Former Nigeria global Obafemi Martins was the hero for minnows Birmingham City who shocked Arsenal 2-1 in the final of the 2011 League Cup. He urged his side to relax and enjoy the occasion but make sure when the final whistle goes they have "no regrets".

"One of the big strengths of Man City is De Bruyne of course, because he has become a very complete player", Wenger said.

"Well you talk about stubborn, Wenger will go out and try and do what they do and that's "well this is how we play and this is how we'll do it", the Scot added. "It's a good opportunity to show that we are at their level". Midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil are also both fitness doubts. The Wales worldwide has missed the last three games with a groin injury but Wenger is confident he will now be ready to be involved at Wembley.

"With Ozil and Aubameyang and these players having a real good day, yes, of course they can".

It will be the first of two back-to-back games between the English clubs this year. Danilo or Oleksandr Zinchenko will start in the position.

With the sides meeting again in the league at Arsenal on Thursday, Pep Guardiola has banned City from drinking if they win the cup. Because Manchester City is dominating the league ahead of everybody and so maybe we are more underdogs than in the FA Cup semi-final [last season]. How many times have they won the FA Cup in their whole history?

This is the first-ever meeting between these sides in a major final.

Manchester City will be hoping to put last Monday's FA Cup woes behind them as they head for Carabao Cup glory at Wembley on Sunday.

So don't listen to the naysayers that give Arsenal no chance, we should be used to that by now.

Wenger also dismissed any downplay of the League Cup final. Click the right arrow above to see the seven managers who have won all three English domestic honours in the dugout.

Arsenal play Man City tomorrow in the Carabao Cup Final at Wembley and the Gunners are the big longshot outsiders to actually win the trophy for the very first time in Arsene Wenger's long career.

Man City have only failed to score in three games across all competitions all season (Wolves at home, Palace away and Wigan away).

The Gunners will now face AC Milan in the last-16 of the continental competition.

And in the blue corner: the present City, shoo-ins for the title, the bookmakers' favourites to win the Champions League and widely regarded as potentially the club's greatest side to date.
