THE Carabao Cup final is here!

Tottenham are facing Man City as Pep Guardiola aims to make it four league cup triumphs on the bounce, but what happens if games are all square after 90 minutes?

Do EFL Cup ties go to extra time or straight to penalties?

There will be extra-time and then penalties if the score is level in today's final.

From the semi-final stage, 30 minutes of extra-time is played before a penalty shootout if the match stays level.

Replays have been scrapped for the entire tournament – and the FA Cup has even followed suit. 

When is the EFL Cup final?

The EFL Cup final was  moved from February 28 to Sunday April 25, 2021.

This decision has been made in a bid to have as many fans as possible attend the Wembley showdown which will kick off at 4pm.

8,000 fans are in attendance at Wembley watching on.

In a statement, the EFL said: "This season’s Carabao Cup final has been rescheduled and will now take place on Sunday 25 April 2021, with a 4pm kick-off.

"It is the objective of the League to stage the final with as many supporters in attendance as possible.

"And the decision has therefore been taken to move the final from its original date of Sunday February 28, 2021 to later in the year.

"The number of fans permitted will be dependent on Government guidance in place at the time.

"And it is hoped that moving the date to later in the year will give clubs and their fans the best opportunity to attend in person."
