Its been a week of major upheaval for English football, but today at Wembley it's all about the game itself. Read on for your full guide to getting a Man City vs Tottenham live stream and watch the EFL Carabao Cup final 2021 from anywhere in the world right now.
Both teams come into this clash having had to weather a storm of condemnation after being revealed as founder members of ill-fated breakaway European Super League. Amid the fall out, Spurs also sacked manager José Mourinho following a disappointing campaign that leaves Spurs' best hopes of European football qualification resting on a win in this game.
The players seem to have responded to Jose's exit, with Spurs winning Mason’s first game in charge with a battling 2-1 victory over Brighton on Wednesday night. This match provides a much greater challenge for the fledgling manager however, as he comes up against the might of Man City, and a club looking to secure their fourth successive Carabao Cup trophy.
City will be looking to avoid their second successive defeat at Wembley having lost to Chelsea in last weekend's FA Cup semi final, a defeat that prevented Guardiola's men pulling off an unprecedented quadruple. The Premier League leaders could be without influential midfielder Kevin De Bruyne for the final, with the Belgian playmaker facing a race against time to be fit after limping off against Chelsea last week.
Follow our guide below to get a Man City vs Tottenham live stream and watch this 2021 Carabao Cup final match-up.

Man City vs Spurs team news
Alongside the concerns surrounding the availability Kevin De Bruyne's involvement, John Stones is suspended for City following his red card against Aston Villa in midweek, with Aymeric Laporte likely to partner Ruben Dias at centre-back.
On the opposite bench, all eyes are on whether Harry Kane will be fit to face City. The talismanic striker missed Tottenham’s 2-1 win against Southampton on Wednesday after suffering an ankle injury in the club’s 2-2 draw with Everton last week, but is said to have a 50/50 chance of leading Spurs out this afternoon.
