Manchester City and Tottenham will face off each other in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday. City reached the final after beating Manchester United with a 2-0 score in the semi-finals, while Tottenham celebrated a 2-0 win over Brentford.

Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.

“There are question marks over Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne, both because of injury.

“City have got Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final with Paris St-Germain to consider and they might keep De Bruyne back for that one but, even without him, I think they will be too strong for Spurs.

“Chelsea did such a good job of stopping City in last weekend’s FA Cup semi-final, but I don’t think Spurs are capable of doing the same.

“Kane would make a big difference for Tottenham of course and I have a feeling he will feature but I don’t think the rest of their team is up to the task. I know their new manager Ryan Mason has a 100% record – after one game in charge – but I don’t see that lasting here.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 2-0
