Did you Know?

The 2016 Football League Cup Final was a football match played at Wembley Stadium, London, on 28 February 2016 to determine the winner of the 2015–16 Football League Cup, the 56th edition of the Football League Cup, a competition for the 92 teams in the Premier League and Football League. It was contested by Liverpool and Manchester City, with Manchester City winning 3–1 in a penalty shoot-out after the match had finished 1–1 after extra time. They would have qualified for the Third Qualifying Round of the 2016–17 UEFA Europa League, but they already qualified for the season’s UEFA Champions League via their league position. Liverpool were participating in a record 12th League Cup Final, having previously won a record eight, most recently in 2012 against Cardiff City. Their last loss was in 2005 to Chelsea. Manchester City made their fifth appearance in the final, having won three previous times, the last of which as recently as 2014 against Sunderland. In the 49th minute Fernandinho opened the scoring for Man City with a low shot from a tight angle on the right of the box that went into the far corner under Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. In the 60th minute Raheem Sterling had a chance to make it 2-0 but he passed the ball wide of the near post from six yards out. In the 83rd minute, Daniel Sturridge drilled the ball in from the right beyond the far post, the ball came to Adam Lallana whose shot hit the face of the near post with the ball coming back to Philippe Coutinho, who scored with a low right foot shot from 12 yards out. There were no more goals in the 90 minutes or in the 30 minutes of extra-time with the match going to a penalty shoot-out. Emre Can scored the first penalty of the shoot-out for Liverpool before Fernandinho missed the first spot-kick for Man City, hitting the post. Lucas Leiva then missed the next kick for Liverpool, with Willy Caballero diving to his left to save. Jesús Navas then scored with his kick before Philippe Coutinho missed with the next kick for Liverpool, Caballero saving again to his left. Sergio Agüero then scored before Caballero dived to his right to save from Adam Lallana. Yaya Touré scored with a low shot to the left to win the game for Man City 3-1 on penalties.

Manchester City vs Arsenal


Match Worn Shirt


Sanè Leroy 


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Leroy Sanè during the Premier League between Manchester City and Arsenal which took place in Manchester, “Etihad Stadium” on June 17th 2020. Manchester City defeated Arsenal 3-0. This style of shirt with the special “Cityzens Giving for Recovery” sponsor on chest was used by the team in this game only. Plus the team replaced player’s names on the back with “Black Lives Matter”. On June 12th players from all 20 Premier League clubs released a joint statement saying the nameplate on their kits would have been replaced by the statement “Black Lives Matter”. “We, the players, stand together with the singular objective of eradicating racial prejudice wherever it exists, to bring about a global society of inclusion, respect, and equal opportunities for All, regardless of their color or creed,” the statement read. “This symbol is a sign of unity from all players, all staff, all clubs, all match officials and the Premier League.” The Premier League confirmed its support to the players’s jersey decision, which affected the first 12 matches of the restart through June 22, and stated the league would have included a “Black Lives Matter” patch on all uniforms for the remainder of the term. It also provided clearance for any player who wants to kneel before the start of a match.
“The Premier League believes there is no room for racism, anywhere,” it said in a statement. The announcement came amid worldwide protests focused on ending racial injustice and police brutality after George Floyd, a 46-year-old black American, was killed while in police custody on May 25. Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling discussed his support of the movement on BBC Newsnight (via Sky Sports). “This is the most important thing at this moment in time because this is something that is happening for years and years. Just like the pandemic, we want to find a solution to stop it,” he said. “At the same time, this is what all these protesters are doing. They are trying to find a solution and a way to stop the injustice they are seeing, and they are fighting for their cause.”

Things to Know:

The sponsor on chest is related to the “Cityzens Giving for Recovery” that was launched by City Football Group (CFG), which is a 12-month recovery campaign bringing together its nine clubs, thousands of staff, players and coaches, and millions of fans to help communities get back on their feet in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the wake of the pandemic, CFG has been supporting the emergency global COVID-19 response for the past three months, through almost £1,000,000 of donations, in-kind support and the loaning of facilities. When the Premier League restarted after the pandemic CFG delivered another £1,000,000 of funding and support through its “Cityzens Giving for Recovery” initiative. The recovery projects focused on various themes including mental and physical health, education for vulnerable young people and tackling loneliness and isolation amongst other initiatives. CFG looked to help facilitate the efforts through its clubs, staff, players, coaches, fans and its partners including its principal partner of more than a decade, Etihad Airways. Etihad generously donated the space on the front of City’s shirt, which normally bears its company branding, to “Cityzens Giving for Recovery” for this home match against Arsenal – that was also the Club’s first game in more than three months after the pandemic.

Everton vs Manchester City


Match Worn Unwashed Shirt


Ederson Moraes


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Ederson in the second half of the Premier League’s game between Everton and Manchester City which took place in Liverpool, “Goodison Park” Stadium, on September 28th 2019. Manchester City defeated Everton 3-1 and at the end of the game Ederson threw his shirt to City’s fans. We got the shirt from the fan who got the shirt in the stadium’s stand. This season, Manchester City replaced his former kit’s supplier Nike with Puma. This shirt also represents 125th anniversary’s kit that takes place in 2019. Ederson joined Manchester City in 2017. On 1 June 2017, Benfica announced that he had joined Premier League’s club for £35 million (€40 million). At the time, the transfer made him the second most expensive goalkeeper of all-time – currently fourth highest – after Gianluigi Buffon (£33 million), whose transfer fee, although the second highest ever in pounds sterling, still remained the highest of all time in euros (€52 million in 2001) until Alisson’s (€75 million in 2018) and now Kepa Arrizabalaga’s (€80 million in 2018). Ederson’s transfer equalled Axel Witsel’s as the largest fee a club has ever paid for a Benfica player. Ederson was immediately inserted as Pep Guardiola’s first choice goalkeeper, supplanting Claudio Bravo. He made his competitive debut for the club on 12 August 2017 in a 0–2 away win at Brighton & Hove Albion, where he kept a clean sheet. On 9 September against Liverpool, Ederson suffered a kick to the face by Sadio Mané, and was forced to leave the game after eight minutes of treatment. Ederson received eight stitches, and Mané was sent off by referee Jon Moss and banned for the subsequent three matches.[citation needed] Ederson made his next start the following week in the Champions League against Feyenoord, sporting a piece of protective headgear. On 19 August 2018, Ederson became the first Manchester City goalkeeper to provide a Premier League assist, as his goal-kick was converted by Sergio Agüero for the opening goal in a 6–1 win over Huddersfield Town.
