Another championship trophy is making its way home to the Etihad Stadium, believe that! 

 

With Pep Guardiola as manager, Manchester City continues to have incredible success, which continued at Wembley on Sunday in the 2020 Carabao Cup Final. City took on Aston Villa and came away with a 2-1 victory. With the result, City has now won the title three years in a row. Unreal. 

Sergio Aguero got things started for the English Premier League powerhouses, finding the back of the net in the 20th minute. Then, 10 minutes later, Rodri doubled the lead for the good guys, putting City up 2-0. 

 

Before the end of the first half, though, Aston Villa made things interesting with a goal by Mbwana Samatta. However, Villa failed to find the equalizer. 

 

With the newest hardware, Manchester City has now won three Carabao Cups, one FA Cup, two Premier League championships and two Community Shields with Guardiola in charge. That's simply sensational. 

 

Though a league title may not be in the cards for this year, Manchester City remains in the hunt in the Champions League, as they defeated Real Madrid in Spain earlier this week in one of the biggest victories in its history. Now, they'll look to keep on making moves in the CL, and they'll do so already having a cup to their names this campaign.
