Aston Villa stop Iheanacho’s Leicester to book spot in Carabao Cup final


Trezeguet’s dramatic stoppage-time winner sent Aston Villa into the Carabao Cup final with a 2-1 win over Leicester at Villa Park.

Kelechi’s Iheanacho’s second-half goal had cancelled out Matt Targett’s first-half strike to level things up on aggregate but the substitute’s late goal secured a 3-2 aggregate win and means it’s Villa going to Wembley.

After an epic encounter, Villa’s supporters celebrated on the pitch at the full-time whistle as they put their relegation concerns to one side amid the drama of the night.

Leicester had dominated the ball for much of the contest but Villa defended stoutly and always maintained a threat and it’s Dean Smith who will lead out his boyhood club in the final against either Manchester City or Manchester United.
