The League Cup final has been a fixture on the football calendar since the 1960-61 season. This year's final will take place on Sunday 2 March, at the home of football in England - Wembley Stadium.

After winning their semi-finals against premiership giants Mancester United in a penalty shoot-out, Sunderland have made it through to this year's League Cup final. Nicknamed The Black Cats, this is the first time in 20 years Sunderland will have played in a cup final.

Sunderland will take on Manchester City, who confidently secured their place in the final with a 9-0 aggregate victory against West Ham in their semi-finals.

Last year saw Swansea beat Bradford City 5 - 0, which meant the Welsh team were the first non-English club to win the League Cup.
