Former Black Stars midfielder Michael Essien enjoyed his time analyzing the Carabao Cup final between his former club Chelsea and Manchester City on Sunday.

The Chelsea legend was at Wembley to watch and talk football for the club's TV channel.

Chelsea lost the final 4-2 on penalties to Premier League champions Manchester City after 120 minutes of pulsating football without a goal.

The game ended in bizarre circumstances after goalkeeper Kepa Arizzabalaga refused to be substituted in the final minutes of the game drawing the fury of manager Maurizio Sarri.

Ilkay Gundogan, Sergio Aguero and Bernardo Silva scored from the spot for City and even though Kepa saved from Leroy Sane it was to no avail.

Jorginho's spot-kick was saved by Ederson and David Luiz hit the post as Chelsea were sunk, despite Cesar Azplicueta, Emerson and Eden Hazard converting their penalties.

Manchester City retained the trophy but Kepa's insubordination is the headline story.
