Capital One Cup Final—Wembley, London.

Manchester City 3-1 Sunderland

Scorers: Borini (10'), Toure (56'), Nasri (58'), Navas (90+1')


Manuel Pellegrini won his first trophy in English football on Sunday as his Manchester City side emerged victorious in the Capital One Cup final.

Sunderland took the lead through Fabio Borini early in the first half and looked much the better side for long stretches, but star quality won the tie on the day.

Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri both swept home marvellous strikes to turn the tables, then Jesus Navas sealed it with a crisp, counterattacking move.
