3-0 to Manchester City who have claimed their first major scalp of the season. "Against quality teams you pay for loss of concentration".

Sergio Aguero gave City an 18th-minute lead.

Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva were all on the scoresheet as City lifted the trophy for the fifth time-only Liverpool have won it more.

But we looked like we weren't even trying to win right from the start.

Moments after the ceremony, Guardiola insisted that he didn't go to celebrate because "It's for Manchester City, it's not for me".

'The ref doesn't give the injury time, ' he said in his post match conference.

Following events last year surrounding Catalonia's bid to break away from Spain, which included a referendum and a proclamation of independence, both deemed illegal, the authorities jailed several leaders of the movement.

Aguero's relationship with Guardiola hasn't always been the smoothest, but there's no doubt City's all-time leading scorer has delivered when called upon in 2018.

"You did Brexit. You allowed Scotland to have a referendum about if (they) want to stay (in the United Kingdom) or not. Now we have a problem in that area".

PSG coach Unai Emery is hopeful Neymar will recover in time for the Champions League game against Real Madrid on March 6.

If it can happen to them then it can happen to us. It was a brilliant piece of defending.

They look a stale football club and it was a desperate performance. I'm training well and supporting the lads when I don't play and, when I play, I'm giving everything I have.

We will sometimes have a good spell of game like other teams but nothing else. Before being a football manager I am a human being and this is for humanity.

Is nowhere near the solid defender he was a couple of season's ago.

"The first half we were not good, there were a lot of mistakes", said Guardiola.

Mustafi paused to his cost, appealing for a foul, and had no chance of stopping the Argentine as he calmly lobbed over the advancing David Ospina for his 199th goal in City colours.

'I said "its not down to you to judge how much time"'. It was a very cheap goal to concede in the Final, but they weren't done being horrible yet. "Here it's different apparently".

"We have to prioritise the next game before we speak about the Europa League".

"We deserved to win", he told Sky Sports.

So sorry for him and all the men and women paying hard earned money to watch this.

And the Catalan praised the desire of City's veteran stars to keep pushing the club forward.

On the yellow ribbon Guardiola added: "They [the FA] know I will wear it always".

Despite the 27 points separating the sides in the Premier League, Arsenal arrived at Wembley having won their last three domestic finals, all in the FA Cup.
