League Cup Final

About this programme

Arsenal v Birmingham City (Kick-off 4.00pm). Gary Lineker presents coverage of the League Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, where the winner of the first major trophy of the season is decided. Arsenal start as strong favourites to win their first silverware since they lifted the FA Cup in the 2004/05 campaign, having already defeated the Blues home and away in the Premier League this term. However, Alex McLeish's men demonstrated their resolve when overcoming Aston Villa and West Ham United in the previous two rounds and will be desperate to produce an upset. With commentary by Guy Mowbray and Mark Lawrenson.
