As Manchester City bask in the glory of an eight League Cup triumph, and a fourth consecutive victory on the tournament, Pep Guardiola's squad are reacting to Sunday afternoon's 1-0 victory over Tottenham on social media.

The Blues are now level with Liverpool in winning the League Cup eight times, firmly establishing themselves as a dominant force in English football history.

In the end, it was an unstoppable header from Aymeric Laporte from a pinpoint Kevin De Bruyne delivery in the 82nd minute that secured the club their sixth League Cup title in the last eight seasons.

As the celebrations will go on into the night within the Manchester City camp, a number of the first-team stars have been reacting to the victory across social media, with a couple of posts standing out and getting the conversation going among fans!

Mendy captioned his Instagram post: "Team work 🏆🏆🏆🏆 (congratulations @colepalmer_10 but tomorrow is school)"

Manchester City centre-back and the scorer of the winning goal under the famous Wembley arch, Aymeric Laporte, paid tribute to the travelling supporters in attendance as well as the run of triumphs in the competition.
