The 53rd League Cup final will take place at Wembley this Sunday, with Manchester City taking on Sunderland. Manchester City have had a relatively straight forward route to the final, with their 2-0 win away at Newcastle the toughest test before they went on to beat West ham 9-0 on aggregate in the semi-final. Sunderland, however, have overcome Chelsea, after being a goal down and beat City’s rivals, Manchester United, on penalties, after a dramatic second leg at Old Trafford.
