Pep Guardiola praised Manchester City's "incredible" run of EFL Cup success after the Citizens secured a comfortable win over Aston Villa at Wembley on Sunday.
The Premier League defending champions City thrashed the Villains to secure the trophy for a third year in a row, and the fifth time in seven seasons, thanks to first-half goals from Sergio Aguero and Rodri.
Mbwana Samatta's header in the 41st minute gave a motivated Villa side hope but they couldn’t secure a comeback as the match ended 2-1.
"Three times in a row is a big success," Guardiola said, per BBC Sport. "It is the consistency - incredible.
"It was awesome. We struggled in the first minutes and the last ones. They had two clear chances in the first minutes but we played really well, especially in the second half.
"The game was good. Phil [Foden] was clinical. It is a big success, our second title of the season with the Community Shield, it is so nice."
The Spaniard added: "We have won a lot. I tried when we arrive [to ensure] every game we play we try to win it, every competition we try to win it. Three times in a row being here and winning is great."
