Manchester City’s dream of winning the quadruplet is over after been beaten by a spirited Chelsea team.
The Blues who were last season finalist succeeded in knocking City out of the competition with just a single goal scored by Hakim Ziyech in the opening minutes of the second half.
Chelsea did score two more goals but both goals were choked off off the VAR.
Thomas Tuchel will be happiest of both managers as his team did exactly as he directed. Chelsea played deep, soaked up the pressure before hitting City on the counter.
Tuchel adopted textbook stuff and it strangely worked on Pep Guardiola’s team.
Why it worked will be difficult to explain but, City were confident on their ability and had too many competitions to think about.
City will now focus on the Caraboa Cup final clash against Tottenham Hotspur, the Champions league clash vs. PSG and off course another Premier League winners medal.
