Man City humbles Arsenal to win Pep Guardiola’s first trophy in England

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City reign landed its first tangible reward on Sunday as the Premier League champions-elect thrashed Arsenal 3-0 at Wembley to win the EFL Cup.

Although a clean sweep of trophies is off the table following the FA Cup defeat at Wigan Athletic, Guardiola has already improved on last season’s lack of silverware, with one trophy now secured and the league title sure to follow. 
Whether or not the Champions League makes it three, City have taken on a dominant air this term, and it showed at the national stadium.
Arsene Wenger sprung a surprise in his selection, opting for a three-man defensive system which had stymied City at Wembley in last season’s FA Cup semi-final victory.

But it backfired spectacularly with Arsenal all at sea to allow Sergio Aguero to score for a fifth meeting in a row, the Argentine bringing up 30 goals for the season with a glorious goal assisted by the much-maligned Claudio Bravo.
City stalwarts Vincent Kompany and David Silva also netted in the second half as Guardiola’s men went through the gears and the Gunners had no response.
Wenger has now lost all three of his finals in this competition and the disquiet over the Frenchman’s reign in north London is sure to return.
