Pep Guardiola has expressed his delight at Manchester City winning their first title of the season after beating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.
Aymeric Laporte’s 82nd minute goal gave City, who dominated the game from the beginning, a well deserved victory in front of 8,000 fans at Wembley.
City now have joint-record eighth win in this competition alongside Liverpool – while they also became the second side after the Reds to win Carabao Cup for the fourth time in a row.
Guardiola’s side are hoping for a treble this season, with just two games away from winning the Premier League and already in the Champions League semifinals.
“It’s much better, much better [with fans].” Guardiola said on Sky Sports.
“We play to score, that’s what’s important. Today we’re incredible. Happy to win the first title, In the past 33 games we won 30, that’s incredible. We play with incredible personality, from the fit minute, to try to win the game. In general we play a really good final.
“We don’t have time to work [on set-pieces]. With this schedule, we don’t have time to do anything. Just the principles, it’s our fifth season together so we know what to do. Just to recover, try to be a unit. It’s tough, but the schedule is this way.
“Now we rest and prepare for the semi-final against PSG. And then after that we are two games away from winning the most important title – the Premier League.”
Meanwhile, this is the first defeat for Ryan Mason as Spurs interim boss. The 29-year-old temporarily took charge of the Spurs team after Jose Mourinho was sacked.
