The Carabao Cup final kicks off on Sunday, with Manchester City and Tottenham going head-to-head at Wembley. Pep Guardiola’s side are red hot favourites to lift the trophy for a fourth successive year. Here’s the latest odds and predictions for the tie.
City will be hoping to become only the second-ever team to win the League Cup in four successive seasons.
A win for Guardiola would see City also become the joint-record winners of the trophy, level with Liverpool on eight.
Spurs, meanwhile, will be hoping to end their 13-year trophy drought with a win at Wembley.
The last time Tottenham won a major trophy was back in 2008, when they beat Chelsea 2-1 in the League Cup final.
City are massive favourites to win the Carabao Cup final, and they currently have odds of 1/6 to lift the trophy.
Tottenham are just 7/2 to lift the Carabao Cup at the end of the tie.
Citizens striker Gabriel Jesus is leading the bookies’ odds to score in the match, at 5/4.
Harry Kane is the most likely player to score at Wembley, despite interim boss Ryan Mason admitting there’s still doubts over his fitness.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom told Express Sport: “Manchester City have won four of the last five EFL Cups and they’re hoping to add another to the impressive collection if they can beat Tottenham in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final.
“Pep Guardiola’s side are the clear 1/6 favourites to be lifting the trophy after the game, while Tottenham are 7/2 to claim their first trophy since winning the 2007/08 edition of this competition.
“Finals can be tense affairs and may need a dreaded penalty shootout to separate the sides, but either team winning on penalties on Sunday is 13/2, with City (12/1) given a slightly better chance from the spot than Tottenham (14/1).
“Gabriel Jesus is City’s best source of goals and is 5/4 to score in the final, while Harry Kane at 12/5 is Tottenham’s best hope of getting on the scoresheet.”
Elsewhere, Tottenham will be led out by Ryan Mason for only the second time as Spurs interim boss.
Despite beating Southampton 2-1 in his match in charge, he’s unlikely to be given the Spurs job on a full-time basis, Betfair added.
Rosbottom said: “Interim Tottenham manager Ryan Mason leads the team out in his second match in charge but is 12/1 to land the job permanently.
“Maurizio Sarri is the 11/4 favourite to be the next permanent manager, Julian Nagelsmann is next at 9/2 and Brendan Rodgers is 6/1.”
