Laporte wants City to build on Carabao success

Laporte bagged the only goal of the game at Wembley to deny Tottenham their first trophy since 2008.

The centre-back, who was lucky to escape two yellow cards in the first half, hasn't been a regular this term but he stepped up when required.

Sunday's triumph was City's fourth in succession in the competition and sees them match Liverpool's record with eight EFL Cup victories overall.

After exiting the FA Cup at the semi-final stage earlier in April, Laporte admits getting back on track in the Carabao Cup was essential as they target a treble this term.

City need just six points from their final five Premier League outings to be crowned champions, while they face Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie on Wednesday.

Aymeric Laporte told Sky Sports: "It's very special for us after we lost in the FA Cup. [We needed] to get confidence and keep going. In the last two months we have been so good. We have to keep this rhythm, to win more titles.

"It was difficult today, they were a good team. It's never easy. Today we have done very well."

City can be backed at 23/20 to pick up a win when they head to the Parc des Princes to take on PSG, who are priced at 21/10, while the draw is available at 14/5.
