Manchester City crushed Sheffield Wednesday into smithereens as they took the chance to move on to the next stage. The Capital One Cup may not be the most prestigious trophy out there, but I don’t think anyone expected it to be a walk in the park.
Lampard opened up the scoreline in the 47th minute. Dzeko then followed by example in the 53rd. Two goals are adequate, but not for them! Jesus Navas put in a goal just a minute later and after a foul on Lampard, Yaya Toure made it four. From then on, Sheffield Wednesday was playing with ten men, this certainly did not do them any favours. Dzeko put in his second goal of the night in the 77th minute and Lampard couldn’t help but do the same after Pozo netted his debut goal in the 88th. How ruthless! What a breath-taker!
Manchester City are the cup holders and have shown this by scoring an astonishing seven goals in just the second half! Finally, they’ve bagged a win after four weeks of waiting. Let’s just hope that this accomplishment has given them the attitude they’ll need to show in their other, more important, games.
