Pep Guardiola says his Manchester City stars are ‘starving’ for silverware and want to add a sixth major trophy in three seasons in tomorrow’s Carabao Cup final against Aston Villa.

Guardiola insisted the squad’s desire for silverware remains insatiable following Wednesday night’s dramatic Champions League win at Real Madrid.

The Citizens take on Aston Villa looking to secure a third successive victory in the league cup 

‘The mentality is the same, to be starving and hungry to win another one,’ said the City manager. 

‘There are no words to express my gratitude to these players. It is honestly so difficult to do it and to maintain that hunger. 

‘It is a great achievement to get to another final, but now we must try to win. What we have won so far has been incredible.’

City will have to beat Villa without star defender Aymeric Laporte, whose hamstring injury picked up at the Bernabeu looks set to keep him sidelined for up to a month.
