Our tipster thinks that City's in-form Argentine international could heap yet more misery upon Maurizio Sarri's side in Sunday's Carabao Cup final

Manchester City and Chelsea meet in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

Neutrals will hope for a hugely entertaining encounter - and this fixture certainly has the potential to serve up goals.

Manchester City were 6-0 winners when these teams met earlier this month but the Blues will be desperate to replicate the performance that saw them claim a 2-0 win against City in December.

Super Sergio

Sergio Aguero grabbed both goals when City defeated Chelsea 2-0 in the Community Shield in August and also hit a hat-trick in that 6-0 mauling just two weeks ago.

It would take a brave punter, then, to write him off and William Hill go 16/5 (4.20) that Aguero scores first. The 30-year-old striker is available at just 19/20 (1.95) to strike at any time.

Raheem Sterling Manchester City 2018-19

Sterling to strike

Raheem Sterling has been in sensational form this season, scoring twice when City demolished the Blues earlier this month.

William Hill go 5/1 (6.0) that Sterling breaks the deadlock at Wembley. The odds compilers offer 6/4 (2.50) that the former Liverpool man finds the net at any time.

Foden in fine form

Teenage sensation Phil Foden has started in four of City's five Carabao Cup ties this term, scoring twice, and could be one to watch if he is rewarded with an opportunity to shine on Sunday.

Foden can be backed at 15/4 (4.75) to score at Wembley or 11/1 (12.0) shot to break the deadlock.

Eden Hazard Chelsea Manchester United

Hopes for Hazard

If Chelsea are to lift the Carabao Cup, it seems certain that they will need a big performance from Eden Hazard.

The brilliant Belgian is Chelsea's key man and William Hill offer 7/1 (8.0) that he scores first on Sunday whilst it is a tempting 9/4 (3.25) that Hazard finds the net at any time.

South American flair

Gonzalo Higuain is expected to lead the line for Chelsea at Wembley and is priced at 21/10 (3.10) to score on Sunday. The on-loan Juventus man can be backed at 13/2 (7.50) to notch the opening goal of the game.

Another South American hoping to hit the headlines is Willian The Brazilian offers a genuine threat - particularly from set-pieces - and is offered at 9/2 (5.50) with William Hill to score at Wembley.

Prediction

There is sure to be plenty of outstanding attacking talent on show at Wembley.

Sergio Aguero is in irresistible form, however, and William Hill's 16/5 (4.20) quote for the Argentine to score first, therefore, could offer outstanding value ahead of Sunday's showdown.
