My first Manchester City trophy is payback for standing by me: Guardiola reflects on Carabo Cup success

Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City

By Mark Mann-Bryans

Pep Guardiola collected his first silverware in England following Carabao Cup success against Arsenal at Wembley yesterday and then praised Manchester City's owners for sticking by him last season.

The Premier League leaders outclassed Arsene Wenger's side to lift the trophy following a 3-0 thrashing of the sorry Gunners.

Sergio Aguero opened the scoring and man of the match Vincent Kompany and David Silva struck after the interval to secure Guardiola's maiden trophy since he was appointed City boss in 2016.

Guardiola could now end the campaign with three winners' medals with the Premier League all but sewn up and a first-ever Champions League trophy also still on offer.

But the 47-year-old praised the club's hierarchy for remaining faithful to him after his first season at the Etihad Stadium ended empty-handed.

"The first half was not good, we felt the pressure to play a final after what happened last season. We spoke about that at half-time," he said.

"I told the players to go out and show who we are and we saw that.

"I can't forget how the club took care of me last season when the results were not good. I will always remember how all the club have supported me and that is why it is important."

Guardiola defied a Football Association charge and continued to wear a yellow ribbon in support of politicians imprisoned in his native Catalonia.
