Both sides have enjoyed plenty of success in this competiton down the years, each securing the silverware on five occasions, although quite remarkably, it is the first meeting of these two teams in the final.
The recent form of the rivals, though, means that Manchester City come into this clash as strong favourites to take the trophy - having thrashed Maurizio Sarri's men 6-0 just two weeks ago.
The odds compilers offer 100/30 (4.33) that the match remains deadlocked at the end of normal time on Sunday afternoon, which would lead to extra time and potentially penalties.
The Blues are sweating over the fitness of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga ahead of Sunday's crunch clash.
Manchester City have scored an astonishing 20 goals in their last five victories in domestic competition.
A tight tussle?
It is worth noting, however, that none of the previous five matches between these teams have seen goals at both ends - with four of those five fixtures producing fewer than three goals.
Better value, though, lies in backing Manchester City to win a match in which at least three goals are scored. The 11/8 (2.38) selection would have paid dividends in 10 of City's last 12 wins in domestic competition.
