Willy Cabellero stars in shootout as Manchester City claim Capital One Cup
Goalkeeper Willy Cabellero was the hero as Manchester City won their fourth League Cup title in a penalty shoot-out victory over Liverpool at Wembley.
In a tale of contrasting fortunes for the men between the posts the Argentinian, back-up to Joe Hart, saved three spot-kicks while opposite number Simon Mignolet did not manage one as City won the shoot-out 3-1 after the match finished 1-1.
While all the focus had been on the attacking options both sides had at their disposal, the match ended up being decided by the goalkeepers.
Mignolet's evening was something of a roller-coaster, ending on a low, as his error in allowing Fernandinho's shot under his body handed City the lead which was only cancelled out by Philippe Coutinho's 83rd-minute strike.
The Belgium international also made a number of excellent saves but having handed the initiative to City it was a long way back for Liverpool and their exertions began to tell in extra-time.
It was only the fourth shoot-out Liverpool had lost in 18 attempts.
